NYSC lover: Army chief orders release of female soldier

Chief of army staff Lt-Gen. Faruk Yahaya has ordered the immediate release of a detained female soldier Hannah Sofiat.

Sofiat was detained after a video of her accepting a marriage proposal from a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) at the orientation camp in Yikpata, Kwara went viral on social media.

Several groups and individuals had been calling for her release.

However, NAN gathered from a source at Army Headquarters on Saturday that the army chief took the decision in the spirit of Christmas.

The source said that the female soldier had been warned and reprimanded for breaching the extant rule guiding the conduct of military personnel.

He said that the soldier had been forgiven and freed from detention to join her family and friends to celebrate Christmas.

According to the source, this is in line with Yahaya’s vision to have a professional army ready to accomplish assigned missions within a joint environment in defence of Nigeria.
