The government need to look into this matter. How long will army personnel keep battering unarmed civilians??

Gbemisola, the wife of Moshood Olaniyi, the man, who was battered on Wednesday by a soldier, Emmanuel B.J., says her husband’s health is deteriorating due to the extent of the injury he sustained.

She said on Thursday that her husband had not been able to eat any food or drink any liquid since the incident happened.

Gbemisola said Olaniyi had been vomiting the food he ate despite the treatment he received at a medical facility immediately the soldier released him.

PUNCH Metro had reported on Wednesday that Emmanuel battered Olaniyi at the Berger Motor Park in Lagos State for sneering at him.

The soldier had alleged that Olaniyi attempted to hit him while reversing his vehicle, and that when he asked why, the driver just sneered at him.

Emmanuel slapped Olaniyi, lashed him with horse whip and threatened to kill him.

He did not release the driver until much pleading by eyewitnesses and other motorists.

Olaniyi was thereafter taken to a hospital in the area for treatment.

But Gbemisola, who claimed that the treatment did not improve her husband’s condition, said Olaniyi could not sleep in the night because of injuries he sustained in the attack.

She said apart from groaning with pains, her husband had been unable to keep any food down his stomach.

She said, “My husband could neither eat nor sleep. The only thing he took today (Thursday) was tea, which he also vomited some minutes later.

“His health is fast deteriorating; the N15, 000 we paid at the hospital he was taken to for treatment has not achieved anything. He was given drips and some injections, but there has been no improvement. He is complaining of pains.

“We are contemplating on taking him to the hospital again for an X-ray, but we don’t have the money to pay for that. All the money we had at home was the N15, 000 we paid for treatment at the hospital on Wednesday.”

One of Olaniyi’s colleagues, who preferred to be address as Crown, said he and other friends were worried about the bus driver’s condition.

Crown said when he went to check on Olaniyi at his resident at about 2.30pm on Thursday, he met him in pains, being massaged by his wife and other sympathisers.
