An Ugly Twist Emerges On The Girl Flogged Naked For Having Sex

A story had recently went viral on social media of a girl who was allegedly stripped naked and flogged by her father after she was caught having sexual intercourse with her boyfriend at their home in Uburu in Ohaozara LGA of Ebonyi state.

However, a new twist has emerged that the man who was spotted flogging her wasn’t her dad.

A well informed source who seems to know a lot alleged that Uzoamaka Chukwu is a victim of sexual harassment – and was being bullied by a lawmaker whose advances she had turned down severally – adding that her biological dad was dead.

According to Tiwasblog:

On 28th July 2016, a rather disturbing video went viral. According to host of blogs, the so called young lady who was stripped naked was caught by her father with another man having sexual intercourse in his house. When I watched the video, I had doubts about it because it was just the girl who was been stripped unclad and flogged like a thief. I forgot it. But, just few hours ago, a very reliable source gave me a different version of the story.

My discoveries are pathetic. On the said 28th July, 2016, one Uzoamaka from Ohaozara West Development centre of Ebonyi State, was caught and bundled into the house of the Coordinator of Ohaozara Development Centre, Mr Ogbonnaya Ene Odi by his younger brother, Enekwachi Ene Odi and other boys loyal to the coordinator. According to my source, the coordinator had alleged that the young girl was in the habit of prostituting and sleeping with almost all men and even the married ones in the Community. Therefore, he had to delegate his younger brother and a couple of other youths, to go bundle the girl to his house where he stripped her unclad and ordered his boys to film her and also to make sure it goes round so as to serve as deterrent to others who may intend or are already involved in such habits.

My brothers and sisters, this is what other bloggers failed to report. Well, there is more to this. Sit tight. Uzoamaka, the young beautiful girl whom you see being tortured and dehumanized in the video below has COMMITTED NO OFFENCE! Just like other young girls of her age, boys were on her trail. As expected, she has a boyfriend, but some boys including those loyal to the Coordinator were not in her good books. She saw them as touts and as a result turned down their advances. In fact, Mr Enekwachi Ene Odi, the younger to the Coordinator had made advances towards her of which she equally turned down. So, on that fateful day, these boys and their coordinator conspired to disgrace the young girl. They took her to the coordinator’s house, forcefully stripped her naked and tortured her like none ever.

In the video below, the Coordinator is the man wearing traditional dress dragging the girl and the younger brother did the flogging. My source further disclosed that the coordinator and his boys took this action because the girl refused to sleep with any of them. They however told the world that the girl is a prostitute and sleeps with married men thereby breeding prostitution in the community. Well, if you watch the video below, for those who understand the Ohaozara dialect, she is being forced to accept sleeping with some persons in the community who are perceived political opponents. I also learnt that these persons were afterwards fined by the coordinator! Hmmmm. This is unbelievable, right? You’d better believe it.

Nigeria has turned to something quite unexplainable. I cant believe how people who are in positions of authority will decide to use it against their own subjects. I am beginning to see the caliber of persons who the Governor of Ebonyi State has as his appointees. The Governor is a respected man. But it’s a shame how favoritism, I assume, has brought so great shame upon him. Is this what the Governor saw before making him a coordinator? Did he actually care about the person or was he more concerned about settling people he feels are loyal without considering their person? Why flog the girl. Why film her and upload to the internet?

Why such inhuman treatment on this girl? Stripped of her rights, treated like a worthless whore. Oh how he has succeeded in destroying and stigmatizing this young lady. Am surprised that the Governor has not done anything yet about this. I am surprised that the so called human rights activists are all quiet about this. I am surprised that up till date, he still bears the title honourable. I am surprised he still lives in his home and not languishing in jail. I am surprised. #JusticeForUzoamaka.

The source continued:

More disturbing of her revelations is the fact that TWO SERVING POLICEMEN were actively involved in this inhuman and illegal act of primitivity, along with a key political leader of her immediate environment. These two categories of public officers are those to whom one would have expected her to run if confronted with the circumstance as she suffered in their hands.

While condemning the grievous and indecent dehumanizationvthat was the torture and public unclading of Uzoamaka, one is more particularly alarmed by the mindless act of video recording the entire nauseating scene and posting online of such vile and murderous product by the same perpetrators.

Finally, I refuse to pronounce anyone guilty in this most inhuman criminality pending thorough investigation by security agencies, I however condemn it in the most strongest of terms.

I wish to assure the family who has approached me as their representative, and all well meaning persons, to assist them in ensuring that proper investigation is conducted into this matter to unravel the truth and to pursue justice for little Uzoamaka that I shall commit every energy available to me to ensure that this matter is not swept under any carpet and that no other child is made to suffer such indignity and inhumanity on any account. I invite all men and women of good will to support this cause. I am convinced that this is well within the mandate I bear and that I enjoy your support in this regard.

Finally, I appeal to the Inspector-General of Police as well as the Commissioner of Police Ebonyi State, Compol Peace Ibekwe Abdalla, to ensure that proper investigation is urgently conducted into this matter in order to bring all culprits to swift justice. I am going to remain vigilant on this matter and appeal to everyone else to do the same. This is about the humanity in us. It’s not about Uzoamaka or whoever is involved in this debacle.

Meanwhile, she is scheduled to appear live on AIT Kaakaki today, Monday August 8, 2016 at about 7.50-8,00am. Please tune in to see and hear her tell her story.

The story has just begun. Join the crusade: #justice4uzoamaka
