The Punch reported, the pastor was
assaulted and beaten into a coma
simply because he refused to obey their
order to frog jump.
Ochienu alleged that he was flogged by
a corporal identified as, M. Dankwa and
his colleague until he collapsed and was
rushed to the Gwarimpa general
hospital where he was admitted at the
emergency ward.
The pastor who is also a civil engineer
said he was supervising construction
works at Paradise Estate, Life Camp,
Abuja when the soldiers invaded the site
with officials of the Development
Control Department and assaulted him
and other workers.
He explained that the soldiers hit him
with rifle bottoms and kicked him in the
stomach because he refused to do frog
jumps while he was fasting. He said the
incident occurred on Tuesday, January
17, around 3pm.
He expressed that he pleaded with the
soldiers that he was fasting but they
refused to listen and beat him until he
collapsed.
He said: “ The soldiers rushed into the
site and ordered everyone to frog-jump;
they flogged the workers and threatened
to shoot us. I tried to explain to them
that I was weak because I was fasting,
but Dankwa was infuriated by my
explanation."
“He kicked me in the stomach; another
soldier also joined in beating me till I
collapsed. When they saw that I was
almost lifeless, they left and I was rushed
to the hospital by the workers.”
Ochienu further said he plans to take
legal action against the Development
Control Department and the military for
the assault.

the victim of the attack.”
