The Nigerian Army has arrested a fake soldier for assaulting veteran musician, Friday Igwe popularly known as Baba Fryo.
Baba Fryo had shared on his Facebook a picture of himself with bruises and bandages, alleging that he was assaulted by some soldiers.
The singer posted, “I was humiliated by unknown soldiers. I tried to force them to the barracks; a female soldier interfered and allowed them to escape.
“The case is under investigation. Thanks to Ojo Army Barracks, which took up the case, I pray they will be caught and brought to book.”
In another post on Tuesday, he said one of the alleged fake soldiers had been caught.
Sharing pictures of a man in mufti, besides a camouflage hat and handcuffs, the artiste wrote, “This is one of the unknown fake soldiers that deliberately beat up our living legend, Baba Fryo Igwe, yesterday without a reason.
“People need to be very careful these days as there are so many Babylonians posing as soldiers. I am very proud of the Nigerian Army and OC, MP, Ojo Cantonment, Capt A.S. Atunwa, for taking action.
“We give thanks to the Most High God. The picture below is the picture of the fake soldier. He has been arrested by the military police, Ojo Cantonment. His name is Muhammed Ishaq. Thank you Nigerian Army, Ojo Cantonment.”
