Soldiers have allegedly tortured a man, Umar Abdulaziz, to death over allegation that their victim stole the cell phone of the girlfriend of one of them in Ganaye Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
Punch reports the deceased’s female neighbour, simply identified as Fatima, on Monday accused him of stealing her mobile phone, and reported him to her soldier boyfriend.
“She accused the man of stealing her mobile phone. She also said the man beat her up and told her lover to deliver her from his grasp. When the lover came, there were four soldiers in all. They dragged Abdulaziz out of the house and off to an unknown location.
“They did not even ask what happened. They used knives to injure Abdulaziz. The victim collapsed, the police were invited and they came to the house. I am not sure whether they arrested any of the soldiers,” an eyewitness told the paper.
