Female Lawyer, Adachukwu Declared Wanted For Assaulting House Help

The Anambra State government has issued a wanted declaration for Adachukwu Okafor, a legal practitioner accused of brutalizing her 11-year-old house help in Onitsha, Anambra State.

Reports from SaharaReporters on Monday indicated that the Anambra State Police, in Southeast Nigeria, initiated a search for the lawyer, who allegedly assaulted an 11-year-old girl named Happiness Nwafor.

The incident, which occurred on February 7, led to protests by numerous women's groups, including the Umuada Awgu Progressive Association and Umuada Awgu Global, condemning the assault on Miss Nwafor.

According to reports, Happiness was subjected to brutality involving a hot knife and electric iron by her guardian, Mrs. Okafor.

Mrs. Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, the Minister of Women Affairs, announced a N2 million bounty for the apprehension of the fleeing lawyer.

Subsequently, the Anambra State Ministry of Women and Social Welfare declared Adachukwu Okafor wanted. Commissioner Ify Obinabo, in a statement, affirmed the state's commitment to providing a substantial reward for anyone with useful information leading to the suspect's arrest.

Obinabo stated, "Anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of Adachukwu Okafor will be handsomely rewarded."

Meanwhile, the victim, who was rescued by Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare Obinabo, disclosed that her mistress had assaulted her using broken bottles, irons, knives, and a pistol within two weeks of her stay.

"She also burned my clothes before leaving me stranded, naked, with my relative, Ifeoma Muoghalu," the victim stated.

Commissioner Obinabo, notified of the incident by the Defend Your Rights Foundation, has pledged to exert every effort to apprehend the suspect.
