We will give N2 million to anybody that will give necessary information to the police or the women affairs ministry on how to get Adachukwu
The Federal Government has placed a N2 million bounty on Anambra based lawyer, Adachukwu Chukelu-Okafor, currently at large, for allegedly burning her 11-year old house help.
She was alleged to have used hot pressing iron and knife to burn and chop in pieces, the private part of her house help.
Mrs Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, Minister of Women Affairs, disclosed this at a news conference in Abuja, following a viral video of the girl after she was abused and returned to her aunt, who gave her out as a house help.
“Please Nigerians go out there search for this woman, bring her out, call any Police station and hand her over.
“The Federal Ministry of Women Affairs is offering N2 million to anybody that will lay hands on this woman and hand her over to the Police.
“We will give N2 million to anybody that will give necessary information to the police or the women affairs ministry on how to get Adachukwu, the barrister, who did all those harmful things to her house help”, she said.
Kennedy-Ohanenye also urged the public to divulge any information that would enable the authorities to apprehend the suspect, who has gone into hiding, to ensure justice for the victim.
“This issue of Adachukwuchu who burnt her 11 year old house girl with hot knife, putting it in her private part and at the same time using hot pressing iron to do other damages on her is of grave concern to the Federal Government.
The minister also revealed that the government would soon make a pronouncement on the issue of employing underage house helps that are less than 18 years, to end cases of child abuse and violation.
According to her, there will be an enforcement programme to that end.
