A woman identified as Madam Nmesoma Okoye has been accused of beating her 10-year-old maid, Kosisochukwu, to death in Anambra.

A human rights activist, Gwamnishu Emefiena Harrison has taken to his Facebook page to allege that Kosisochukwu was brutally tortured.

The help was said to have died before arriving at the hospital for treatment on February 16.

He also claimed that there was a plan to cover up the home help’s death as Okoye was only apprehended by the police and not yet charged to court for murder.

Gwamnishu wrote: “They want to cover up her death. She was brutally tortured and died before arriving at the hospital for treatment on 16th February 2021.

“Madam Nmesoma is detained at SCID Awka and as usual, the police have refused to charge Madam Nmesoma to court for murder. The little girl was brutally tortured and she died before arriving at the hospital for treatment on 16th February 2021.

“The poor girl died in the hands of a woman who ought to take her as her child. With bruises all over her body, multiple stabs on her back, a child died with pain.”

“Demand that Anambra State Government and Anambra Police Command charge Madam Nmesoma for murder.

“Demand that police desist from collecting bail and settlement.”

Another Facebook user, Abanifi Phoebe Ijeoma also alleged that the incident occurred three months after Okoye gave birth to her child.

She added that Kosi was brutally stabbed in the head and other parts of the body before the young girl gave up the ghost.

She wrote: “On Tuesday, February 16 2021, while we were busy going about our normal lives, this woman named Mmesonma Okoye from Enugu state killed a ten-year-old kid by the name Kosisochukwu who was under her care as a “maid” three months after giving birth to her child

“The child Kosisochukwu was inflicted with multiple stab wounds on her head and other parts of her body until she died, what she did after that was so terrible and shocking

“She called the family of Kosi to come to a certain hospital because Kosisochukwu was very sick. On getting there, the doctor told her family that the child was long dead before they brought her to the hospital and her remains had been deposited in the mortuary, the family insisted on seeing the corpse and after much back and forth they were granted

“Lo and behold, they saw a child, brutally tortured till she breathed her last, with a fractured body and a hole in the head, now the thing is Mmesonma and her husband are trying to avert justice because, of course, late Kosisochukwu was from a very poor home, the family wants justice but as it is the DPO is not helping matters, they are crying for help, they want well-meaning Nigerians to intervene and help them get justice.

“My next post I’m going to attach the picture of Kosisochukwu while alive and her brutalized dead body.”

No Oil Money Again, FG Printed N60bn To Share In March – Obaseki

Kindly Share This

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo has warned that there would soon be no crude oil revenue for Nigeria to spend, adding that the federal government had to print extra N60 billion for states to share in March.

The governor made this statement on Wednesday during a meeting with the state’s Transition Committee in Benin.

Mr Obaseki noted the Nigerian economy can no longer rely on global oil prices because major oil-producing companies are now investing in alternative sectors, Channels news reported.

The governor further expressed his concern over the habitual borrowing system of the government, he explained that by the end of the year that there would be additional N16 trillion debt owed by the Nigerian government.

He mentioned that the situation may cause a collapse in the economy of the country and the value of naira because there is no way of paying back borrowed loans.

“In another year or so, where will we find this money that we go to Abuja to share every month? Last month, we got FAAC for March. The federal government printed an additional ₦50 to ₦60 billion to top-up for us to share,” he said.

“We say remove subsidy, they say no. This April, next week again, we will go to Abuja and share. By the end of this year, the total borrowing is going to be in excess of ₦15 to ₦16 trillion.

“My worry is that we will wake up one day like Argentina, the naira will be ₦1,000, ₦2,000 and will be moving because we don’t have money coming in. You are just borrowing, borrowing and borrowing without any means or idea of how to pay back.”

Speaking further, the governor explained that the people are concerned about the 2023 election while they keep blaming the president for the current state of the nation’s economy.

Also, the governor commended the effort of the Independent National Electoral Committee for adopting technology to bring a change to the voting system in the country so it will be difficult to rig election results.

“INEC itself had also begun its own process of change. They have been worried, scandalised by what happened in Kogi and Bayelsa and were trying to redeem themselves.

“So using technology, they made sure that as soon as you finish voting in the polling unit, that result was uploaded straight into a portal so they can see the pattern which makes it difficult to change results at the collation centers.’’

JUSUN To Consider NBA’s Proposal To Call Off Strike

Published

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has said it would table before its National Executive Committee (NEC) a proposal to reopen federal courts and courts in states that have complied with its financial autonomy demands.

JUSUN spokesman Jimoh Musa, however, warned the proposal, made by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), was likely to split the union, whose members are on an indefinite strike.

According to a statement by NBA Publicity Secretary Dr. Rapulu Nduka, Musa spoke during a JUSUN national officers’ visit to officially communicate the circumstances leading to the Union’s ongoing strike action, as well as to seek the NBA’s support.

JUSUN began a near-nationwide indefinite strike last Monday over the non-implementation of judicial financial autonomy.

NBA 1st Vice President, John Aikpokpo-Martins, who received the delegation, decried the failure of the State government to comply with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution and the Executive Order, No. 10 signed by President Muhammadu Buhari on May 20, 2020, to enforce the autonomy of State Judiciaries.

He reiterated the NBA’s position as contained in an April 5, 2021 statement, that the timing of the strike action was “rather inauspicious.”

Aikpokpo-Martins pleaded with the union “to consider calling off the strike for its members in the federal judiciary (since the Federal Government has complied with the constitutional provisions on Judicial autonomy), as well as in the states which have given effect to the provisions of the Constitution.”

Responding, Musa expressed JUSUN’s dissatisfaction with the NBA’s “historical apathy to the autonomy of the Judiciary which left the Union with the unfortunate option of shutting down the courts.”

He however expressed the hope that the current administration of NBA President Mr Olumide Akpata will approach things differently.

Musa also bemoaned the failure of the government to enforce its previous undertakings with the union and underscored the union’s resolve not to call off the strike, until all its demands are met.

On the proposition to call off the strike for the federal judiciary, Musa observed that such a step would be a recipe for division within the union, as solidarity was at the core of the struggle.

He, however, promised to table the proposal before the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting for consideration. He thereafter sought the support of the NBA in charting a new course for the Judiciary towards ensuring its independence.
