KanyiDaily had reported how the woman was beaten to a stupor, stripped naked, and paraded by some men who accused her of desecrating their shrine by collecting snails at the sacred site.

In a statement on Friday, the command spokesman, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said six male suspects were arrested after the Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Ahmed Ammani, ordered a full-scale investigation into the incident and prosecution of the culprits.

The statement reads, “The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, CP Ahmed Ammani, fdc has ordered the State CID Enugu to conduct a full-scale investigation into the viral case of alleged stripping naked of a woman (names withheld) at Agunese, Afam-Mmaku in Awgu Local Government Area, by some youths of the community numbering over twenty (20), on 27/10/2022, over the allegation that she desecrated their shrine by picking snails therein.

“Consequently, six (6) 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 round the community. Others include: Jonathan Nwangene aged 43, Maduabuchi Madueke aged 34, Obioma Nwangene aged 39, Anikene Samuel aged 24 and Chukwuebuka Agu aged 32.

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

“To this end, the Commissioner, 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.”

KanyiDaily had also reported how a woman, Ajuese Obiora, was stripped nαked and paraded after she was accused of killing her husband by having extramarital affairs in Aguleri community, in the Anambra East Local Government Area of the state.
