Mrs Victoria, wife of Lance Corporal Martins, has been arrested for granting interview with the media over her husband’s arrest.

In a recent viral video published, Lance Corporal Martins complained about the inadequate measures employed by the army in combating Boko Harm.

He blamed the Army Chief of Staff, Major General Tukur Buratai, for the failings of millitary personnel in crushing Boko Haram.

Lance Corporal Martins was later arrested and transfered to the Army Headquarters in Abuja.

Lance Corporal Martins berated the security chiefs of Nigeria for deliberately not acting to stop the incessant killings of Nigerians by terrorists and armed bandits.
Speaking with Nairagists on Wednesday, Mrs Victoria (wife of Lance Corporal) said fending for her three children has been her major concern since her husband’s arrest.

She said, “A day before he posted the video, he called me to ask for recharge card to buy data but I didn’t send it him because he already told me that he wanted to post a video about the problems they are facing in the army.

“He told me to prepare for the worst. So, I didn’t send him the data because I don’t want him to get into trouble by uploading the video on social media.”

His wife said she asked her husband how they will manage their family if he was sanctioned and things go wrong.

She said, “I asked him where do we start as a family. But he said I should man up, that I have been the one taking care of the family before now.”

Mrs Victoria said her husband was one, who will not refrain from speaking the truth because of fear or favour.

“Day before yesterday, he was off and he resumed duty yesterday.

“He made a video call with the children after he resumed at the office.

“Not up to 30 minutes later, he called that they’ve arrested him and they are taking him to the guard room. He said if you hear from me, fine, if you don’t hear from me, fine.
