A lady who gave her name as Elizabeth has accused the Commissioner for Water Resources in Kogi State, Abdulmumuni Danga of beating her up and raping her after she made a Facebook post.
According to her, she saw photos of the commissioner on Facebook as he was giving out coronavirus lockdown palliatives to some residents and urged the commission to also extend the gesture to his own family members as his own sister needed financial help.
The post didn’t go down well with Abdulmumuni Danga, who allegedly hired thugs to kidnap her.
Speaking with SaharaReporters, Elizabeth said; “I saw a post by a local comedian of the commissioner sharing food and his family are complaining that he doesn’t attend to them, that was why I made the post.:
“On the 29th of March, I made a post about the commissioner. After making the post, they started attacking me on social media and he sent some guys to come and get me.”
“On getting to me, they flogged me. He also flogged me himself, stripped me naked and made a video of me threatening to post it when next I make any public comment about it.”
“They also made me apologise that what I said about him was not true under duress. I had to do so because they were all over me.”
“The commissioner also smashed my phone and destroyed it totally, saying that maybe I might have been recording what was happening or I have been recording before getting there.”
Recounting how the commissioner raped her, Elizabeth said that he held her captive and took her to a hotel at night where he forcefully had sex with her.
