An Anambra female lawyer, Adachukwu Chikelu-Okafor, who allegedly brutalized her 11-year-old househelp, has finally handed herself over to the police in the state.

Chikelu-Okafor, who allegedly inserted a hot knife into the private part of the house girl, ran away after the incident.

Pmnews.ng recalls that she was declared wanted by the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and the State Ministry of Women Affairs with a bounty placed on her.

The state police command detained her after she turned herself in, a development the state government confirmed to newsmen in Awka, the state capital.

It was gathered that she allegedly boasted while manhandling the child that she was a lawyer, and as a result, nothing would happen to her.

Pmnews.ng reports women from Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State had also placed a N1 million bounty on her.

Meanwhile, Anambra State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Mrs Ify Obinabo, confirmed the lawyer’s detention, saying that the Onitsha-based lawyer surrendered herself to the police few days after a bounty of N2 million was placed on her.

Obinabo said the suspect would be arraigned before the Children, Sexual and Gender Based Violence Magistrate court in Awka this week.

The commissioner further revealed that she visited the brutalized victim in the hospital, noting that the girl had been successfully treated and discharged.
