Female Soldier detained for accepting a civilian proposal.

A female soldier who accepted the proposal of a male corps member has been detained by the Nigerian military.

The said incidence happened at the National Youth Corps Orientation camp in Kwara state.

The Nigerian army confirmed the detention and said it’s on basis violations of certain extant laws of the army.
According to The Punch, the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, said “the female officer violated military laws by getting involved in a public display of amorous relationship with a paramilitary trainee – a corps member.”

The decision of the military to discipline the yet to be named soldier has caused a lot of stir online, as people calling for the Nigerian army authorities to tamper justice with mercy.

In the video that actually gave out the soldier, a male corps member is seen in his training wears kneeling down on one leg and proposing to the female soldier in her army uniform.

She accepted his proposal and he gave her the ring and they both kissed passionately in front of the crowd.

However, speaking with The PUNCH on Sunday, the Army spokesman said the female soldier violated the Nigerian Army’s rules and regulations guiding the codes of conduct of military personnel when deployed for duty.

The Military rep said: “The female soldier in question violated the following rules of the NA:

  1. Fraternization while on official duty at the NYSC camp. That is, indulging in an amorous relationship with a trainee.
  2. A personnel must have served for three years before he/she can qualify for marriage.
  3. She disobeyed the Armed Forces of Nigeria standing guidelines and directives for the use of Social Media.
  4. Indulging in romance while in uniform.
  5. Her conduct was prejudicial to good order and military discipline.”

He also noted that the situation is tantamount to saying that the female soldier toke advantage of the corps member.

Even though people seems to show likeness for the event, but if it were to be the other way round, the public would have screamed that the male soldier coerced the female corps to accept his proposal.
