Obinwannem News Commissioner Abdulmumin Danga from Kogi state allegedly kidnaps and brutalizes woman and son

The Kogi State Commissioner for Water Resources, Abdulmumin Danga is in hot water after news broke of his alleged involvement in the kidnapping and flogging of a lady who called him out on Facebook for neglecting his family.

The Lady identified as Elizabeth who in a post on Facebook had asked the Commissioner to show support for his own family said she was moved to make the post after series of complaints brought to her by the commissioner’s sister.

This prompted the ruthless response from Commissioner Danga who allegedly hired thugs to kidnap the woman and her son in Okene, she was assaulted and held captive in a Lokoja hotel for a day while the Commissioner raped her and made nude recordings of the victim, she was also forced to make confessions denouncing her posts about the Commissioner on Facebook.

Narrating her ordeal, Elizabeth said, “On the 29th of March, I made a post about the commissioner. 

“After making the post, they started attacking me on social media and he sent some guys to come and get me. “On getting to me, they flogged me. He flogged me himself, stripped me naked and made a video of me threatening to post it when next I make any public comment about it. 

“They also made me apologize that what I said about him was not true under duress. I had to do so because they were all over me. “The commissioner also smashed my phone and destroyed it totally, saying that maybe I might have been recording what was happening or I have been recording before getting there.”

She further narrated how the commissioner forced her to a hotel at night where he raped her, “He did not release me and took me to a hotel nearby. Over the night, he made advances and raped me.” 

A coalition of human rights organizations led by rights advocate, Dorothy Njemanze is seeking justice for the victims, they’re also calling on the Governor, Yahaya Bello to immediately remove the commissioner from office.

“The lady was brutalized and was also sexually violated before released the next day. We are going all out for justice.” Mrs Dorothy said. So far, the commissioner has not responded to calls to his office.
