Enugu group places N1m bounty on Anambra woman over alleged brutalisation of minor

Published

Women from Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State have placed a N1 million bounty on an Anambra woman, Mrs Adachukwu Okafor, who allegedly brutalized her 11-year-old househelp.

The group, operating under the aegis of Umuada Awgu Global Association, UAGA, also issued a 48-hour ultimatum to Okafor to hand herself over to the police.

The Founder and President of UAGA, Chinemerem Anyi, announced the financial reward for any informant on the fleeing woman’s whereabouts at the group’s news briefing on the matter on Thursday in Enugu.

She said anybody who avails the police, the Anambra State Government or other relevant authorities with useful information that could lead to the woman’s arrest will smile home with N1 million from the group.

According to her, Okafor, who hails from Anambra and lived in Onitsha, was accusing the victim of touching the private part of her eight-year-old daughter while bathing her.

Anyi, who was flanked at the briefing by other members of the group, said “it beats our imagination that almost three weeks after the woman perpetrated the evil act, the police were still saying that she is still at large”.

She noted that the organisation was beginning to smell a rat, “going by the manner the matter was being handled by the Anambra Police Command”.

She said that the group also issued the police 48-hour ultimatum to apprehend the perpetrator or incur its wrath.

“The Awgu women have been resisting the temptation of taking the law into our hands over the matter as civilised people but we warn that such calm disposition should not be taken for granted or weakness.

“We are heartbroken over the barbaric act and today, we gathered for this important press briefing over the recent brutalisation of our daughter, Miss Happiness Nwafor, by her wicked madam,” she said.
