And finally… call of duty

A soldier who accepted a marriage proposal while on duty has been arrested.

The Nigerian woman, who has not been named, broke the military’s code of conduct by “indulging in romance while in uniform”, the BBC reports.

The proposal was from a young man in the government’s military-run youth training scheme and was made in the middle of a training programme.

A video of the unusual proposal went viral on social media – before landing the pair in hot water.

Army spokesman Gen Clement Nwachukwu said: “Her task was to train the youth corps members and not to indulge in amorous relationship with any of them.”
