The chairman violated checkpoint regulations. Soldiers on Thursday inflicted corporal punishment on a local government chairman in Borno State. The caretaker chairman of Hawul Local Government Area, Daniel Malang, received severe corporal punishment in the hands of the Joint Task Force for allegedly breaking checkpoint regulations and talking rudely to soldiers.

Mr. Malang, who reportedly has a reputation for breaking traffic rule especially at military check post ran out of luck when he attempted to shunt his way across a long queue of vehicles along Maiduguri-Biu road. A PREMIUM TIMES reporter who witnessed the incident heard the chairman telling the soldiers that “don’t you know me? I am the executive chairman of Hawul localgovernment.”

A soldier, unimpressed with Mr. Malang’s statement responded by saying “does this place resemble Hawul local government; even if na Hawul be this, does that give you the license to break my order by not following the queue?”

The soldier ordered the council boss to park his Peugeot 406 car and asked him to come out for frog-jump alongside his driver while other motorists watched on. The soldiers kept the chairman there for hours before he was later freed with a stern warning not to repeat such act again.
Sources close to the chairman saidhe recently suffered similar fate in Biu when soldiers gave him a similar treatment for breaking check-post regulation.

Borno is currently under emergency rule and has a heavy presence of soldiers to check the insurgency by the Boko Haram and other crimes - See more at:
