The Nigerian Army has sentenced the soldier who beat up Nollywood actress Infinity Jewel.
In a statement released to Politics Nigeria, the Nigerian Army said it charged and found Suleiman Olamilekan guilty of maltreatment, and so has sentenced him to prison with hard labour.
Recall that the news first surfaced on social media in late January after the actress, whose real name is Ebere Ohakwe, shared how she was brutally beaten by a soldier stationed at the outskirts of Port Harcourt.
According to the actress, their car was flagged down by a group of army officers stationed outside the south-south city (Port-Harcourt), and then an officer who she identifies as Sulaiman Olamilekan molested and then proceeded to inflict injuries on her body.
Afterwards, Ebere Ohakwe was hospitalised before she took to social media to expose the officer. He was summoned by his superiors and now has been slammed with a prison sentence, and with hard labour. Also, Olamilekan will forfeit his salary within the period of sentence.
