Hon. Linus Abaa Okorie, the lawmaker representing Onicha, Ohaozara and Ivo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, had vowed to do anything possible to bring justice for the poor girl. Things seem to look bright for the girl now, as she is now fully settled in her new home under the tutelage of her adopters .

"Uzoamaka is now a bona fide member of the peaceful and blessed home of Ms Rita Nnenna Anoh who recently emerged The Most Celebrated Female Personality of the Year at the 2016 Nigeria Role Models Award held in Lagos.

One can only imagine the joy and overwhelming satisfaction of Uzoamaka as she moved into the palatial home of the Anohs.

In order to ensure a complete switch from the pains of her past and prepare her for her new life, Uzoamaka was taken on an expansive shopping spree, registered for medical assessment and psychotherapy, while efforts are on to register her in a decent school ahead of the commencement of the new academic session.
