Soldier shot 17-year-old girl for refusing his lustful advances [PHOTOS]

A 17-year-old girl was reportedly shot at close range by a soldier for refusing his lustful advances, she was continuously kicked and brutalised by the soldier after being shot -- she was only lucky to remain alive through intervention of his military colleague, when he was about to take her life completely.

The girl is reportedly recovering from the brutality at the Plateau State Specialist hospital.

A youth activist and former banker, Friday Bako, made this known in a Facebook post, he said the incident occurred in a protest over the demise of 2 young boys in Riyom Local Government Area, Plateau State.

The Federal Lawmaker representing Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency, Barr. I. D. Gyang has called for full investigation of abuses on Human Rights of his constituents, particularly the recent alleged killings and attacks on innocent and harmless civilians.

He stated this when he visited Simi Danladi at the hospital on Sunday.

Read the report by Mr Bako below;

“Rep ID Gyang was at the Plateau Specialist Hospital at 8:00am on Saturday, November 4, to visit and sympathize with victims of gunshots including Simi Danladi, a 17 year old SS1 student of GSS Sopp in Riyom LGA. She was shot on the thigh at close range by one of soldiers manning the checkpoint at Sopp because she allegedly refused his lustful advances.

On the 19th of October this year during a protest by the community against the soldiers for causing the dead of two boys, this particular soldier singled out Simi and shot her. He wanted to finish her off with another shot but was stopped by a fellow soldier who was more sympathetic. He proceeded to kick her several times in the face and body. Eventually Simi and two others, Danjuma Kaze and his son Irimiya who were shot on the leg and jaw respectively are currently receiving medical attention at the Plateau Specialist Hospital, Jos. Please pray for their recovery.”
