A disturbing video of a teenager from Ebonyi State being flogged by a man went viral on social media some days ago. The report then was that a father caught his teenage daughter having sex with a man in their home, stripped her and told people to film her while he flogged her. According to Ada Ebonyi, the young girl in the video has been identified as Uzoamaka, a 15-year-old Junior Secondary School and an orphan.
"The people that stripped her were top politicians in my community, people who were supposed to protect and care for her, but for reasons best known to them, they thought there could shame her, funny enough the same social media they wanted to shame her with, was the same media she is getting justice from...When the first pictures and stories went viral, concerned individuals including myself raised serious alarm and seeked for justice on her behalf." said Ada Ebonyi.Another person got involved in the saga, House of Representatives member, Hon. Linus Abaa Okorie. He took these photos of the victim when he visited her yesterday, August 6, at the rehabilitation center where she is currently receiving medical attention. He said:
This is every shade wrong. #justice4uzoamaka
