Kogi Rape: Kogi State Government Reveal Why Kogi State commissioner for Water Resources Is Still In The Office, Urge The NGOs Calling For The Sack Of The Commissioner To Be Patient

THE Kogi State commissioner for Water Resources, Abdulmumuni Danga who allegedly raped a woman Miss Elizabeth Oyeniyi is not sack as speculated in some quarter.

Speaking with newsmen, the commissioner for Information and communication Strategy, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo said the NGOs calling for the sack of the commissioner should exercise patient and have confidence that the governor will do the right thing. “We can not punish somebody who has not been convicted of the crime allegedly committed,”. 

According to him after all no one approached the governor but the governor picked up the case out of personal conviction that no one should molested and no one should be accused falesly without proper investigation.

He said that is why the governor have ordered accelerated investigation into the whole saga. “So far no one have been sacked,” he noted.

Meanwhile, Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has called on the relevant law enforcement agencies to conduct thorough investigation into the alleged battering and rape of Kogi beauty queen, Elizabeth Oyeniyi, by the Kogi State Commissioner for Water Resources, Abdumumuni Danga. The body also said they should ensure that justice is served, while commending Kogi Government ordering accelerated investigation into the allegations. A statement in Lokoja, by the Chairman of NMA National Committee on Gender Violence, Dr Godwin Tijani, condemned in its entirety the alleged battering and rape of Oyeniyi describing it as a gross gender violation and abuse of office by the privileged government’s official.

The NMA condemns in a strong term the alleged human right abuse, assault and rape of Elizabeth Oyeniyi by Kogi Commissioner for water resources. Violence against women and girls is a grave violation of human rights. ”Its impact ranges from immediate to long-term multiple physical, sexual and mental consequences for women and girls, including death. It negatively affects the victim’s general well-being and prevents such women from fully participating in society. ”Violence not only has negative consequences for women but also their families, the community and the country at large,” Tijani said. The association also commended the coalition of human right civil society organizations for the prompt action in coming to the aid of the victim in order to justice for her. 

He restated the commitment of NMA to partner with Governments, civil society organizations and other institutions to advocate for ending violence against women and girl-child. He added the partnership would increase awareness of the causes and consequences of violence and build capacity of partners to prevent and respond to violence.
