It was learnt that the woman was stripped naked by youths numbering about 20 in the community for picking snails at a sacred site.

On Friday 4th November, 2022, the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ammani in a statement made available to Journalists in Enugu by the public relation officer of the command, Daniel Ndukwe ordered the State CID Enugu to conduct a full-scale investigation into the case


He said six male suspects have been arrested, including one Okoro Stan aged 46, alleged to have led others in perpetrating the act of beating and parading the said victim around the community.

“Others according to him include Jonathan Nwangene aged 43, Maduabuchi Madueke aged 34, Obioma Nwangene aged 39, Anikene Samuel aged 24 and Chukwuebuka Agu aged 32. In addition, frantic investigative efforts are ongoing to arrest others at large.

According to the CP, an ongoing investigation into the case has shown that the suspects also beat up and caused bodily injuries to the victim’s husband and brother, when they attempted to stop them from carrying out the act.

He said “To this end, the CP while categorically condemning the said acts of torture, dehumanization and degradation of the person of the victim in contravention of extant laws, especially those bordering on her dignity and fundamental human rights, has further directed that the investigation be concluded within the shortest possible time and the culprits arraigned accordingly.

The CP, therefore, urges citizens of the State, particularly traditional rulers and other community leaders, to ensure that utmost caution is exercised when enforcing traditional or customary norms on their subjects, especially if doing so will lead to the contravention of the constitutionally enshrined fundamental rights of the person.
