He made the demand while receiving the victim, who is an indigene of the state, at the chambers of Government House, Abakaliki, on Tuesday. Umahi said the 21-day imprisonment given to the soldiers was not enough. He explained that by sacking them, other law enforcement agents would be disciplined in their professional conduct and abstain from abusing the citizens’ rights. He thanked Willie Obiano, his Anambra counterpart, for his “quick intervention” and the help extended to the victim. “I want to thank the governor of Anambra state for his quick intervention on this matter, I was very happy when he reacted immediately and rehabilitated this young man, also I want to commend the chief of army staff for the disciplinary action so far taken on those two soldiers, but we believe that 21 days imprisonment is not enough they did not behave like human beings and to be demoted is not enough,” he said. “I suggest to the chief of army staff that those soldiers should be sacked from the army and be prosecuted immediately.
