A Nigerian woman who attacked her friend for sleeping with her husband, has been remanded in prison after being arraigned in a court in Owerri, Imo state, earlier today
Seen in a video that went viral last month, the suspect identified as Ngozi Akakem physically attacked her friend named Nkiru over allegations of having sexual relations with her husband.
Nkiru was beaten mercilessly by Ngozi who also stripped her naked and filmed the entire embarrassing incident which went viral online.
According to reports, Ngozi came to Nkiru’s house with thugs and humiliated the victim at gunpoint.
She then and allegedly tried to blackmail her to pay an undisclosed sum in order to prevent the release of the video.
Unfortunately, the video of the attack was subsequently released and social media went agog.
This sparked a media outrage which led to the #JusticeforNkiru movement and ultimately the prosecution of Ngozi Akakem in the court of law where she was slammed with 10 count charges.
According to Dorothy Njemanze, the court granted Ngozi bail to the tune of one million Naira with the condition that she gets a level 16 officer to stand for her.
The case was adjourned to 28th of March, 2019 but Ngozi was remanded in prison over failure to meet her bail conditions.
