The Nigerian Army has reacted to reports circulating on social media about a soldier who harassed a nollywood actress.

 The Nigerian army has summoned a soldier named Suleiman Olamilekan and a guard commander who allegedly assaulted the Nollywood actress, Jewel Infinity along the Port Harcourt-Onitsha Road, Rivers State.

The actress had posted on her Facebook wall that she was assaulted by Olamilekan while boarding a Sienna bus from Port Harcourt to Onitsha, Anambra State.

The actress had called for justice and her plea had since gone viral on social media.

Director, Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman on Wednesday said the soldiers have been summoned and appropriate actions will be taken.

He said, “The matter has been communicated to the General Officer Commanding, 6 Division and the necessary action is being taken."

The soldier and his guard commander have been invited while effort is on to locate the lady.

“We enjoin the general public to have trust and confidence in the army by appropriately reporting issues to us; and if nothing is done, then they can go public with it.”

More details to follow as the situation unfolds.
