Mixed reactions trailed the soldier’s arrest.

Nigerian Army spokesman Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu said the now detained-female officer violated extant military laws by getting involved in a public display of relationship with a paramilitary trainee – a corps member.

He explained that the female officer violated the Nigerian Army’s rules and regulations guiding the codes of conduct of military personnel when deployed for duty.

According to him, the female soldier violated some rules of the Nigerian Army, including indulging in an amorous relationship with a trainee; indulging in romance while in uniform; disobeying the Armed Forces standing guidelines and directives for the use of social media, among others.
