Hon Abdulmumuni Danga, the Kogi State Commissioner for Water Resources who was accused earlier this year by a lady identified as Elizabeth of rape and battery has been called in for questioning by the police.
Earlier this year, the lady was reported to have called on the commissioner on Facebook to assist her sister and family financially.
This move was said to have infuriated the commissioner, who consequently allegedly hired thugs to kidnap Elizabeth and her son.
When Elizabeth was eventually released, a video she shared showing wounds allegedly inflicted on her by the commissioner and his cohorts went viral.
The commissioner was said to have gone after her again, this time stripping her naked, flogging her and threatening to release videos he made, if she tried to make any public comments about what happened to her.
She further alleged that her phone was smashed and she was made to apologise under duress with a statement that all she said about the commissioner were lies.
The public outcry that greeted her shared story and evidences against Hon Danga have eventually led to commissioner being called for questioning about two months after the occurrence of the alleged incidences as stated by a Human rights activist, Segun Awosanya, popularly known as Segalink.
Segun Awosanya, also alleged that powerful people backed by the Kogi State Governor are behind Hon Danga.
He stated that “this is unlike any other case, it’s a rape allegation, that is supposed to be a crime against the state. Unfortunately, the chief security officer of the state is the one obstructing justice. It is a game of evidences and we have a trailer load”.
Hon Abdulmumuni Danga has since been released on bail.
