Female Journalists Condemn Inhuman Treatment on Woman who Lost Husband During Sex
The Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ ), Anambra State chapter has condemned treatment meted to a woman accused of killing her husband during ex.
The group demanded the arrest and prosecution of culprits found culpable in the matter.
A press release by the group read…
It is with shock and disbelief that NAWOJ Anambra watched in a viral video a woman being paraded naked by some members of her community on the accusation that she caused the death of her husband through an overdose of sex.
While some reports have it that as a result of her alleged unfaithfulness to her husband, he died during sexual intercourse with her another says it was because the husband ate her food.
Whichever be the case, while we do not support infidelity and promiscuity, we condemn in strong terms the treatment meted to this woman.
NAWOJ Anambra wonders how the people arrived at the conclusion that the woman killed her husband since no autopsy was conducted on the man before his burial.
We are also in shock that such a primitive and detestable practice will be made mention of in this 21st century. It is also heartbreaking that fellow women were among the woman’s tormentors going by the viral video.
NAWOJ Anambra therefore commend the Anambra state police command for rescuing the woman and call on them to ensure the arrest and prosecution of all those involved in this barbaric act.
We beckon on the traditional ruler and President General of Aguleri to ensure the safety and rehabilitation of the woman who has been subjected to untold humiliation, dehumanization, physical and emotional trauma.
We maintain that proper channels and civilized methods should be employed while dealing with any offender and urge people not to take the laws in their hands.
Chairperson, Anambra NAWOJ.
