The 86 years old woman who was lynched and stripped naked for alleged missing male organ Mrs. Ann Ikechukwu, has demanded for justice over the lawless act meted on her by one Ebube Linus, two of his siblings, Sunday, Chinago Linus and other youths who molested her wrongly for a cooked up story of Ebube’s missing male organ.

Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday October 10th 2023, where she is receiving medical attention, she said the boy, Ebube, lied.

According to her, they wanted to use her for money ritual and not true that she was responsible for his missing manhood, she alleged.

She noted that when she got home, she couldn’t walk due to the severe attack she suffered in the hands of the boys that lynched her.

She narrated that she was given three pant drips by the medical doctor who attended to her before she could regain consciousness.

Hear her: “the medical doctor at FMC fixed three drips on my body before I could get myself.

“But my two legs that day, if I want to stand, they will match me with their legs, then I fell. Even that day I urinated on my body that night at home because I couldn’t walk”.

Asked what she wanted the police or government to do for her, she said: “They should come publicly to tell the world that the missing male organ they claimed I took, I am not the one that took it.

“They wanted to use me for ritual. Not what they claimed that happened on that day.

“They should equally pay for any damages on my body”, she insisted.

Mrs. Ikechukwu, was beaten mercilessly and stripped naked by some youths when Ebube raised the fake alarm of his missing male organ opposite Elomaz Hotel, DBS Road, where he went to buy food.

It would be recall that the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Edafe Bright, said: “On Sunday 8th October 2023, the social media was awash by a certain woman who was stripped naked by irate mob over allegation that she made the male organ of one of the suspects we have here to disappear.

“When the Command got that information on Sunday, the control room was directed by the CP to quickly call on the DPO GRA Division who mobilized and led men to DBS Road, opposite Elomaz Hotel, where the woman was rescued and as God will have it, the suspect, this 18-year-old suspect, his name is Ebube Linus, who claimed that his male organ was made to disappear by the woman, was also arrested.

“So, on getting to the station, it was discovered that he lied because he saw for himself that nothing was happening to him. So, the question is, why raise such a false rumour? Apart from raising such a false rumour, why would Nigerians, our youths and some elderly ones among us bounce on a woman, taking laws into their hands?

“Not just beating her but stripping her naked and people like you and I also sent such videos to the internet. As I am speaking with you, a mother, a wife and a child because I believe she is a daughter to somebody, the video is all over the internet being beaten and stripped naked.

“It makes no sense especially for frivolous allegation such as this one”.

The PPRO, gave the name of the woman as Mrs. Ann Ikechukwu, a 68 years old woman, adding, “as I am speaking with you, on that very day, I was made to understand that about three hospitals rejected her because she was badly beaten.

“Now, she is being managed at a private hospital but today, I will be going there to relocate her to a better hospital where she can get a better medication”.

He disclosed that two siblings of the suspect, Sunday and Chinago Linus, who were invited by the suspect, partook in the beating of the woman, wondering why he would allow mob to beat up the woman in such a dehumanizing manner.

He revealed that others who were shown in the viral video, beating the woman, would be apprehended and made to face the wrath of the law, “we will go after them and arrest them. Jungle justice cannot stay in this Command.

“We will not tolerate it, we will go all out, arrest and prosecute anybody who is found wanting”, he warned.

He revealed that the suspects would be charged for attempted murder.
