When she was brought to the court, she could not say any sensible word and she defected all over her body. We are going to follow this case as Dr. Joe-Oke Odumakin our President has taken interest in the case and she has condemned this ugly act. We will ensure that others involved in treating this woman like an animal will be made to face the full wrath of the law”, he said.
