A soldier is in trouble for allegedly beating her niece for not washing plates. 

The act of brutality had become a talking point on social media networks and the Nigerian Army heard. 

Now, the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army in Lagos has said it has started investigating the female soldier.

The investigation, according to a statement issued by the Division’s spokesperson, Lt.-Col. Olaolu Daudu, was borne out of a social media report on August 19 where the female soldier, whose name has not been revealed, was accused of brutalising her little niece.

"The attention of the Division has been drawn to social media reports published on Sunday, Augut 19, where a female soldier was accused of brutalising her little niece for allegedly not washing plates.

"While the incident was cruel, it smacks of disrespect for human dignity which the Nigerian Army totally frowns at as it is unfortunate.
