SCORES of
women from the five
South-East states of Abia,
Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu
and Imo, were yesterday
stopped by the Abia State
police command from
protesting in Umuahia,
the state capital, against
the controversial gang-
rape alleged to have
taken place at the state
university, Uturu.

The women, who said
they came under the
umbrella of civil society
groups in the South-East
and Igbo Women
Organizations, urged  the
government and police
to conduct deeper
investigation into the
ugly incident.

This happened on a day
Abia State police
command promised to
reward any person with
information that could
lead to the arrest of the
perpetrators or
identification of the rape
victim with N500,000.

A statement by the
command’s spokesman,
ASP Geoffrey Ogbonna,
said: “The command in its
usual manner of
protecting informants’
identity, assures utmost
secrecy in this regard
while a handsome
reward of N500,000
awaits any one with
useful information.”

The women, who came
into Umuahia with two
big buses, were stopped
close to Government
House by the Divisional
Police Officer of Umuahia
and diverted to the
Central Police Station.
