Some youths in Gadumo Community in Lokoja, Kogi state capital, have beaten a soldier for making advances to a married woman. The Punch reports that the soldier, names unknown, was fond of making advances to girls in the community. He was however beaten when he had persistently wooed the married woman.
A witness said the soldier, who came from Lagos, had been confronted by the woman's husband after she told him of the soldier's advances. It was after an argument ensued between them that youths in the community swooped on the soldier around the Master Energy Filling Station of the community.
Williams Aya, the state Police Public Relations Officer, said when the Divisional Police Officer in charge of C Division visited the community, he was told the army had taken the soldier away.
