Women In Ebonyi State Protest Half Naked Over Continued Detention Of The President General Of Their Community (photos)

There was confusion at Nkwegu community near Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State as over 200 women from Afikpo South Council area of Ebonyi state protested half-naked.
The women were protesting the continued detention of the President General of the community, Ndubuisi Ekumankama by the police after he was detained for allegedly demolishing a widow’s house in Amangwu Edda community.
However, things were brought under control by the Police Commissioner, CP Peace Ibekwe Abdallah who immediately mobilised another team of policewomen led by the Officer in charge of Criminal Investigation Department,  who led other policewomen to the scene.

The women protesting naked at what they described as injustice
Speaking about the incident, the Ebonyi State Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO), ASP George Okafor, described the actions of the protesting n*ked women as against the norm of the society. He said the women were wrong to have protested n*ked after they had been told that case involving the President General of the Community has been charged to court.

“Last week, a group of women numbering about 20 stormed the state headquarters to protest over the arrest and detention of a suspect who was being held for demolishing a widow’s house in Amangwu-Edda.  After we spoke to them, they even saw the suspect and he spoke to them which showed that he is alive. They went back and today again, we got information that the same women had gone and mobilised over 200 other women to storm the government house to protest and we also got information that they were coming into the town naked so we tried to halt them from gaining entrance into the city.


“Our men who earlier got to the scene were repelled because of the sight of the nakedness of these women and we had to mobilise our police women led by woman ACP in charge of CID. They went  there  as women, who understood each other. And  they had more access to them unlike the men who were being careful because these women were naked. Their actions were unfortunate and shameful. They have desecrated the Igbo culture by protesting naked over a politically motivated issue. If there were reasons to protest naked, these women should have known that it must be a serious issue.” he said.
