Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has ordered the suspension of Abdulmumuni Danga, the Commissioner for Water Resources in the state, who assaulted and raped a lady over a Facebook post. The governor has also ordered an accelerated investigation into the case.

The commissioner kidnapped, assaulted and raped the lady identified as Elizabeth Oyeniyi before releasing her. Oyeniyi had on March 29, 2020, made a post on her Facebook page about Danga not taking care of his sibling, who is her friend.

It was gathered that the post did not go down well with Danga and he allegedly ordered his boys to look for Oyeniyi and beat her up. The victim said that after she was beaten by the boys, she was ordered to strip naked and apologise to the commissioner thereafter.

The 23-year-old beauty queen added that the commissioner took her to a hotel and raped her.

An online petition has also been launched to demand the prosecution of Danga. The petition can be signed here: http://chng.it/ygKH2vMbzM
