One of the personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps named Ezekiel has been accused of brutalising his sisters for having boyfriends.
Ezekiel was said to have visited his siblings, Amarachi and Chidinma, at their house in the Kuje area of Abuja and demanded the former’s phone.
Amarachi, a microbiology student at the University of Abuja, reportedly refused to release her phone to him.
Ezekiel was said to have flogged her with a stick and a cable, causing her bodily injuries.
Chidinma claims to be 25 years old, while Amarachi says she is 19.
They said their brother was always going through their phones and got furious anytime he saw a chat from their male friends.
Chidinma said her brother once flogged her till she passed out after accusing her of sleeping around.
She said, “This is not the first time this is happening. We both have scars on our bodies. The recent one happened on April 20. He came to the house unaware; that is how he usually does. He came at 9pm and asked my sister for her phone; she denied having one because he already seized one from her after accusing her of having a boyfriend. That was the period she just gained admission into UniAbuja; my brother also tore her admission letter.
The NSCDC authority are yet to take action concerning the case.
