Over 200 naked women from Nkwegu
community near Abakaliki took to the street
of the town in protest against the continued
detention of the president general of the
community, Ndubuisi Ekumankama, by the
police on Monday, May 9.
Ekumankama was reported to have broken
down the house of a widow in Amangwu
Edda community of the state and had been
incarcerated for it.




According to Punch, the women, believed to
be about 200 in number were protesting all
the way to Ebonyi State Government House
in Abakaliki before they were intercepted by
policemen who became confused upon
seeing the naked women.
The police public relations officer, Ebonyi
state command, George Okafo said: “Last
week, a group of women numbering about 20
stormed the police headquarters to protest 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. This showed
them that he is alive. They went back.
“Today, we got information that the same
women had gone and mobilised over 200
other women to storm the Government House
in protest. We also got information that they
were coming into the town naked so, we tried
to halt them from gaining entry 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
policewomen, led by a female Assistant
Commissioner of Police. Their action was
unfortunate and shameful.”
The State Police Commissioner, Ibekwe
Abdallah, sent some female police officers
to the scene to plead with protesters.
Meanwhile, after receiving heavy knocks
from Nigerians including frontline human
right lawyer, Femi Falana, over the
continuous attacks on Nigerians by Fulani
herdsmen, the inspector-general of police
(IGP), Solomon Arase, has directed
commissioners of police (CPs) to convene
town hall meetings in their respective
commands.
