Governor Umahi Gives N500K To Crippled Man Brutalized By Soldiers For Wearing A Camouflage
More blessings are coming the way of the physically challenged person, Chijioke Oraku, who was brutalized by soldiers for wearing a camouflage in Onitsha, Anmabra state. The man met with the governor of Ebonyi state, David Umahi who has demanded the immediate dismissal of the two military officers who brutalized him.
The governor made the demand while receiving the victim, who is an indigene of the state, at the chambers of Government House, Abakaliki, on Tuesday. Umahi said the 21-day imprisonment given to the soldiers was not enough.
He explained that by sacking them, other law enforcement agents would be disciplined in their professional conduct and abstain from abusing the citizens’ rights.
He thanked Willie Obiano, his Anambra counterpart, for his “quick intervention” and the help extended to the victim.
Umahi gave N500,000 to Oraku for his treatment and upkeep, and directed one of his aides to liaise with the victim and recommend ways that the government can properly rehabilitate him.
