UPDATE: See The Heartless Man Who Ordered the Beating of Ebonyi Girl for Having S*x (Photos)
Bibian Chinenye Pius-Urum, one of the ladies fighting to get justice for Uzoamaka wrote on Facebook:
“This is the face of the man who allegedly gave the order that Uzoamaka be stripped naked and beaten, he also allegedly poured hot drinks on her naked body. His name is Ogbonna Ene Odii. His the co-ordinator of a Development Centre and not a Local Government chairman (The Sun should get their facts right).
He allegedly gave the orders. His name and face should trend and not the little girl’s. I apologise for putting up her picture earlier.
Till now, I’ve heard nothing from the Ebonyi state government. The governor is not in the country, quite understandable.
The wife of the governor has said nothing.
Not even the SUG, the AG or the Commissioner for Yours and Sports have commented on this.
The People’s Democratic Party, Ebonyi state chapter has said nothing.
The Ebonyi State Co-ordinators Forum are silent too.
No official statement. Nothing. They are all silent on this issue and letting the media drag the image of the state in the mud.
Then my Facebook friends who are supposed to comment on the issue are all silent because they either loyal to guy in question or loyal to someone whom his loyal to or loyal to someone who is loyal to him. Or because he’s not in the opposition.
The world is watching.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
The three men are now in police custody
She further revealed that the police has started investigation into the matter after the culprits were arrested.
“The Police in Ebonyi State says it has began orderly room trial of three of its officers indicted in the stripping and battering of a 15 year-old Uzoamaka Chukwu in Umunaga Uburu, Ohaozara local government area of the state.
“The victim has just been able to make her painful statement to the command and the case is being diligently investigated to ensure that justice will be done in this scandalous incident”, she added.
