Kogi State Commissioner for Water Resources, Abdulmumuni Danga, has been accused of brutalizing a lady for calling him out on Facebook, according to SaharaReporters.
According to the report, the lady, identified as Elizabeth, had urged the commissioner to financially assist his blood sister.
The post allegedly did not go down well with Danga, who reportedly hired thugs to pick up Elizabeth from her home with her three-year-old son.
Speaking with SaharaReporters, Elizabeth said she decided to make the post following series of complaints by the commissioner’s sister to her.
She said, “I saw a post by a local comedian of the commissioner sharing food and his family are complaining that he doesn’t attend to them, that was why I made the post. .
On the 29th of March, I made a post about the commissioner. After making the post, they started attacking me on social media and he sent some guys to come and get me. .
On getting to me, they flogged me. He flogged me himself, stripped me naked and made a video of me threatening to post it when next I make any public comment about it. .
They also made me apologize that what I said about him was not true under duress. I had to do so because they were all over me.
The commissioner also smashed my phone and destroyed it totally, saying that maybe I might have been recording what was happening or I have been recording before getting there.”
In a video of the apology, it could be seen that Elizabeth and the commissioner’s alleged sister were both teary while being recorded. .
Elizabeth also accused the commissioner of raping her. “He did not release me. He took me to a hotel nearby. Over the night, he made advances and raped me,” she claimed.
Leading the demand for justice for the victim is Dorothy Njemanze, a rights advocate. She said that a coalition of human rights organisations had been setup to ensure that the victim gets justice and duly compensated.
She said, “The lady was brutalize and was also sexually violated before being released the next day. We are going all out for justice.”..[Swipe
