A woman has been beaten mercilessly after being accused of stealing money sprayed at a wedding in Uyo.
A woman, Iniubong Essien, has revealed how her friend, Aniedi, and her husband, Uduak Godwin Nseobot aka King Pele, a Councillor representing Southern II, Ward 6 in Ibiono Ibom LGA, abducted, stripped her naked and brutalized her.
Vanguardngr reports that Iniubong was accused of stealing some of the money sprayed on the couple during their marriage which took place on November 3, 2018 in Usenten, Akwa Ibom State.
The victim alleged that she was taken to the community square at the prompting of the Council lawmaker, stripped naked, tied a rope around her waist, battered her with sticks and stones and paraded round the village.
“They broke bottles on my head and assaulted me. And my nude pictures were taken by the Councillor and the people and shared on social media,” she said.
Meanwhile, Iniubong’s lawyers, Bailey Chambers, have raised a strongly worded petition to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Akwa Ibom State CID, alleging assault, battery and threat to life as well as attempted murder of their client.
Akwa Ibom State Branch of the International Federation of Women Lawyers also stepped into the matter. The body equally petition the state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice and the police.
They maintained that the association would follow the case to its logical conclusion with a view to making sure that justice was done or seen to be done in the matter.
