Minister Of Women Affairs Orders Arrest Of Uyo Lawyer For Assaulting Wife

The Minister of Women Affairs, Uju Ohanenye has ordered the arrest of an Uyo-based lawyer known as Mr Ebong for assaulting his wife in a viral video.

Mr Ebong was seen in the video standing over his bloodied wife who was in her underwear, while several people intervened stopping him from beating her.

A bystander also accused the man of beating his wife for more than four years.

Reacting to the horrible scene on Sunday via a post on X, the minister wrote that the “Federal Ministry of Women Affairs Nigeria has ordered the arrest of this demonized lawyer Mr Ebong, who must face the law squally and I promise this act can not be swept under the carpet.”

Hon.Ohanenye insisted the lawyer would face the law irrespective of the wife’s refusal to push for prosecution.

“Even if the woman decides she doesn’t want her husband to be sued, due to family pressure. the man must face the law as justice will have its way.”
She also reiterated the Ministry’s commitment to ending gender-based violence in the country

“This remains one of the most insane and unbelievable scenes one has seen in the brutalization of women.”

“As I have always emphasised, this is a ‘Renewed Hope’ government and such an act cannot be allowed in our country.”
