Ebonyi State Government Issues Statement Over The Stripping and Flogging of Teenage Girl (Photos)

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Ebonyi State Government has finally released a statement regarding the girl who was stripped naked and mercilessly flogged by a politician and his co-horts.


The Ebonyi State Government has released a statement condemning the stripping and battering of a 14-year-old girl, Miss Uzoamaka Chukwu, by some people in Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state.

The girl who was stripped n*ked and beaten with a cane sparked outrage online after a video of the incident surfaced.

In a five-paragraph statement by Emma Anya, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor David Umahi, assured that the perpetrators of the dastardly act will be dealt with.

The statement reads:

I. Ebonyi State Government condemns in totality, the inhuman treatment meted out to a minor, Miss Uzoamaka, Chukwu, by some people in Ohoazara LGA.




 II. Government encourages the state police command to ensure a thorough investigation of the incident and bring to book, the suspects, some of whom are already in detention.

III. Governor David Umahi will not in any way condone the violation of the rights of any Ebonyian, especially minors, by anyone be he in government or private sector.

IV. The pollicisation of this pitiful situation cannot benefit the little girl concerned nor the politicians parading her on national media. The naked images of the child splashed on newspaper pages are utterly condemnable.

V. Government has already taken action to locate the minor in order to ensure that she is properly rehabilitated and made to overcome the trauma she has passed through.
