See Update On The Girl Who Was Flogged For "Having Sex" In Ebonyi (Photos)

Recently, reports went viral of a
secondary school girl who was
allegedly flogged unclad by her father
after she was caught having sex at her
home in Uburu in Ohaozara LGA of
Ebonyi state. Well, there seems to be a new twist to the story as fresh report
reveals that her father is dead and she
was allegedly dehumanized by some
men including policemen and a
politician in her area...
Read what was shared by Linus Abaa who personally met her on Saturday,
July 6th (yesterday);
Earlier today, I met one on one with
Uzoamaka Chukwu, the unfortunate
15 year old JSS 2 student from Uburu
in Ohaozara LGA of my constituency who was recently made "popular" by
unknown persons who brutalized and
dehumanized her through torture and
defilement of her humanity. I met her
on the invitation of her family who
seek inquest into her sickening ordeal and also justice for her.
I also insisted on hearing directly from
her on the circumstances of her
torture and public defilement. For if I
must speak about it, I should do so on
the strength of first hand information and a conviction that she is truly a
victim.
Her story is heartrending and painful.
And truly she is a victim of inhumanity
and highhandedness of misplaced
power/authority. First, she is a 15 year old minor and
wait for it...an ORPHAN! Her father died
while she was only 4 in 2004 and her
mother painfully followed suit two
years later in 2006 when she was
barely 6 years old. So she had no father to catch her in the immoral
circumstance that was earlier reported.
That story is on all scores a fabrication
to deceive the public into antagonizing
her to cover the tracks of her
aggressors. Two, her family is too poor to own that
'rich' apartment where she was
tortured, molested and traumatized or
the cars in the foreground of the
premises. Indeed, she claims to know
the owner of the house who she reports is the leader and master
minder of her unfortunate ordeal. She
remembers and positively identified
more than four persons who
participated in that show of
inhumanity on her. More disturbing of her revelations is
the fact that TWO SERVING POLICEMEN
were actively involved in this inhuman
and illegal act of primitivity, along with
a key political leader of her immediate
environment. These two categories of public officers are those to whom one
would have expected her to run if
confronted with the circumstance as
she suffered in their hands.
While condemning the grievous and
indecent dehumanizationvthat was the torture and public unclading of
Uzoamaka, one is more particularly
alarmed by the mindless act of video
recording the entire nauseating scene
and posting online of such vile and
murderous product by the same perpetrators.
Finally, I refuse to pronounce anyone
guilty in this most inhuman criminality
pending thorough investigation by
security agencies, I however condemn
it in the most strongest of terms. I wish to assure the family who has
approached me as their
representative, and all well meaning
persons, to assist them in ensuring
that proper investigation is conducted
into this matter to unravel the truth and to pursue justice for little
Uzoamaka that I shall commit every
energy available to me to ensure that
this matter is not swept under any
carpet and that no other child is made
to suffer such indignity and inhumanity on any account. I invite all
men and women of good will to
support this cause. I am convinced
that this is well within the mandate I
bear and that I enjoy your support in
this regard. Finally, I appeal to the Inspector-
General of Police as well as the
Commissioner of Police Ebonyi State,
Compol Peace Ibekwe Abdalla, to
ensure that proper investigation is
urgently conducted into this matter in order to bring all culprits to swift
justice. I am going to remain vigilant
on this matter and appeal to everyone
else to do the same. This is about the
humanity in us. It's not about
Uzoamaka or whoever is involved in this debacle.
