4 Weeks After: Military 'rewards' officer who dehumanised female NYSC member - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

Barely one month after, the female corps member, Fidelia Ifenyinwa Ezeiruaku, who was dehumanized by a female military officer, is yet to get any atom of justice, reports 
ITREALMS.

Multiple civil society organizations (CSOs) and high net individuals, including the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, had pledged at the wake of this incident to take up the matter with the highest authorities especially in the military to ensure justice for Ifenyinwa.

This also includes military command who assured that the case will not be swept under the carpet.

But a letter reportedly drafted by Ifenyinwa to a popular radio station, she lamented the treatment she has received in recent times, alleging she has been abandoned to her fate.

Ifenyinwa was quoted as claiming that “Nothing has happened since reporting my maltreatment to the military authorities,” but instead the said female officer was 'rewarded' with participation of a three-week course at Jaji in Kaduna State.

According to reports by DAILYPOST, “After the incident, Lieutenant Chika Viola went for a three-week course in Jaji, Kaduna State," stressing that “I know that once we end our service year, and I am not here again, the case will die.”

"The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) which ought to assist her in pursuing her case, according to her “did not come to check on me” decrying that “they did not even ask to know the corper they did this to.”

Also, DAILYPOST noticed that pressures have begun to be mounted on Fidelia to drop the case, as she said “the NYSC now called me and they were saying did I write through them before going to get a lawyer.

"Stressing how they have begun to arrange “things” against her, the NYSC, according to her letter “said I should bring down the case” adding that “they gave me a book and biro and asked me to write that I have withdrawn the case and that I should write formally through them. I left them and went away. I didn’t write anything and didn’t withdraw the case.”

Ifenyinwa, who said she has made up her mind to take every legitimate means to seek justice, declared “I am suing Lieutenant Chika Viola and the army authorities. I am suing both of them.”
