Publisher of SaharaReporter, Omoyele Sowore has vowed to mobilize justice for a female soldier allegedly being detained by the Nigerian Army after she received a marriage proposal from a Youth Corper at the orientation camp in Yikpata, Kwara State.

A video had emerged on social media days ago where a corps member was sighted proposing to a yet-to-be-identified female soldier who was fully kitted in her official khaki camouflage.

The video accessed by our correspondent, showed the soldier kissing the corps member at her supposed duty post.

However, a report later emerged that the Nigerian army had allegedly detained the soldier for going against its established laws of publicly displaying affection for a romantic partner while on duty.
