Assembly Raises Alarm Over ‘Incessant’ Raping of Women
By Emma Elekwa
The Anambra State House of Assembly yesterday raised the alarm over ‘incessant’ raping of women in Nteje, a community in Oyi local government area of the state and passed a motion asking the state governor to act decisively about it.
The member representing Oyi constituency, Hon. Vivian Okadigbo, had, during the plenary, warned that if nothing urgent was done to tame what she described as a deadly terror squad in the community, the entire state might be plunged into chaos.
The lawmaker decried ‘indiscriminate’ raping of women in the community by the squad, adding that Nteje community had been restless for some time now.
