Soldier appears in viral video assaulting motorist in Lagos

A soldier has appeared in a viral video assaulting a driver on Moloney Street, Lagos Island.

The soldier named simply as Duru was said to have driven against traffic, hitting the vehicle of his victim in the process.

In the background of the video, a female occupant of the vehicle is heard crying as the soldier assaults the driver.

Duru was joined by two others in the assault.

“This happened around 5:16 p.m. on Moloney Street, Lagos Island opposite the Police Office/Kam Salem house. We were on the right side of the road coming from Obalende but had to stop as there was an oncoming vehicle in our way. This vehicle should have been on the left side,” the lady captioned the video.

“We hooted several times but the vehicle refused to move. We then heard other disgruntled drivers murmur, ‘na soldier oh’ and so we reversed in an attempt to wriggle our way out peacefully.

“But to our surprise, the soldier reversed and intentionally drove forward to hit our car. These videos show the altercation right from when we were wrongly hit.”
