According to SaharaReporters, Anthony was beaten to death on Friday after he had a misunderstanding with the soldier’s daughter, Adeoye Precious, who insulted their reverend father.

It was gathered that Precious also insulted Anthony and his late father, which led him to slap her during the confrontation which was later resolved after both of them were punished in church.

A source said Precious still went home and reported the incident to her father, who picked Anthony up and took him to Ilese Sappers Barracks, where he was beaten mercilessly.

“It was the people around that begged for him before the soldier allowed him to go after a severe beating. On getting home, he refused to tell his widowed mum what happened, maybe he didn’t want to hurt her.

“He had complained of having a headache and body pain and said he needed some rest. He went to bed on Friday night and never woke up. He was taken to the hospital yesterday, where doctors confirmed that he died from internal bleeding.

“He was the only son of his mum. She’s devastated and doesn’t know what to do,” a member of the church said.

A member of Anthony’s family is demanding justice for the deceased who was described as a lovely person. “He was a young man filled with life, I still can’t believe he died just like that,” he said.
