Kogi Commissioner that allegedly battered and raped beauty queen is called in for questioning after damning evidence against him was gathered
The Kogi Commissioner for Water Resources, Hon. Abdulmumuni Danga, who allegedly brutalized and raped a former beauty queen for calling him out on Facebook was called in for questioning. However, there has been pressure from the state governor and others in the political class to pervert justice, Segun Awosanya has said.
Earlier this year, a woman identified as Elizabeth, urged the commissioner on Facebook to assist his sister and family financially. .
Danga was offended by the post and he allegedly hired thugs to kidnap Elizabeth from her home with her three-year-old son. Elizabeth said Danga flogged her, stripped her naked, filmed her naked body, and raped her.
Elizabeth’s story sparked outrage and people called for justice at the time.
Activist Segun Awosanya, popularly known as Segalink, took to Twitter to reveal that Hon. Danga was taken into custody on Tuesday, June 2, but was later released after he posted bail.
Segun said “damning evidence” gathered against Hon. Danga led to him being taken into custody.
A video of the commissioner in custody shows him refusing to write a statement. He eventually did when he realized Sega was publicizing it.
