THE victim of military brutality captured in a video that went viral last week, Amari Sunday, yesterday narrated the ordeal of his unforgettable encounter with five young cadets, including two female officers, who led the assault. He spoke on Sunrise Daily, a breakfast programme on Channels TV.
 
Dressed in the same outfit he wore about 14 months ago when the incident happened, Sunday disproved the claim by the military authority that the incident happened in Lagos.
 
According to him, the inhuman treatment handed down to him took place on December 31, 2014 at Jabi Lake park in Abuja, a Federal Government recreational facility. 

The victim added that he was then engaged by the defunct Sure-P recreational department as a security guard at the park.
 
He claimed that he saw the cadets torturing a young man and he felt they had been drafted to the park for security reasons, only for one of them to beckon at him and ordered that he should cover a lengthy distance to where they were standing in five seconds.

He added that despite his best effort, he could not meet his demand, with the most brutal lady seen slapping him repeatedly in the video, asking him to cover the said distance in three seconds, which he failed to accomplish again.

At this point, according to the victim, the lanky tall lady started slapping him for failing to obey officer’s orders.

He narrated that while the slapping and hitting were on, the lanky lady cadet asked him to look at her because all the while, he had not looked into their faces. After taking a glance, she reportedly asked him if she was beautiful or ugly, Sunday reportedly answered “beautiful.”
 
The beast in her was said to have been incensed by the compliment as she was said to have rained slaps on him while calling on his colleagues to come and deal with him for saying she was beautiful.
 
At this point, the other female cadet and the three male joined in hitting him, until according to Sunday, blood started coming from his eyes, mouth, nose, and ears.
 
While ordering him to remove his shirt to wipe the blood, he said the gangling lady posed the question about her appearance again, with the victim claiming that at this point, he had to say she was ugly, a response that reportedly attracted more severe assault.
