A personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), simply identified as Ezekiel, has been accused of physically assaulting his sisters for having boyfriends, Newsbreak reports.
Ezekiel visited his siblings, Amarachi and Chidinma, at their residence in the Kuje axis of Abuja and demanded the former’s mobile phone.
Amarachi, a microbiology student at the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA), reportedly refused to release her phone to him, which infuriated the older sibling and caused him to flog her with a stick and cable. He caused her bodily injuries in the process.
Chidinma claims to be 25 years old, while Amarachi says she is 19 – although their brother said they are 22 and 16 respectively.
According to the two ladies, their brother was always going through their phones and got furious anytime he saw a chat from their male friends, admirers or boyfriend.
Chidinma said her brother once flogged her till she passed out after accusing her of sexual immorality. She also stated that her brother has been invited to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) after she and her sister lodged a complaint at the gender unit, adding that he did not show up.
“He threatened to deal with us when he gets back. Since then, we have nowhere to lay our heads,” she added.
Per Punch, Ezekiel said the issue was a family affair, and challenged the ladies to provide evidence that he was responsible for their scars.
