The women of Nkwegu community near Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State, caused pandemonium as over 200 of them stormed the Afikpo South Local Government Area of the state, naked, to protest the continued detention of the President General of the community, Ndubuisi Ekumankama, who is being detained by the police for allegedly demolishing a widow’s house in Amangwu Edda community.

According to the Sun Newspaper, the women who had planned to storm the Government House in protest, were intercepted by policemen when they resisted the first team of policemen who could not withstand the sight of the rampaging naked women.

The protesting women had allegedly stripped naked, exposing the upper parts of their bodies which threw many into confusion, including the policemen.

It only took the intervention of the State Police Commissioner, Peace Ibekwe Abdallah, who then mobilised another team of policewomen led by the Officer in charge of Criminal Investigation Department, to calm the women down.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP George Okafor, confirmed the incident, describing the actions of the protesting naked women as shameful and desecration of Igbo culture and norms.

“Last week, a group of women numbering about 20, had stormed the state headquarters to protest over the arrest and detention of a suspect who was being held for demolishing a widow’s house in Amangwu-Edda. 

After we spoke to them, they even saw the suspect and he spoke to them, which showed that he is alive. They went back and today again, we got information that the same women had gone and mobilised over 200 other women to storm the Government House to protest and we also got information that they were coming into the town naked so we tried to halt them from gaining entrance into the city.

Their actions were unfortunate and shameful. They have desecrated the Igbo culture by protesting naked over a politically motivated issue. If there were reasons to protest naked, these women should have known that it must be a serious issue.”
