If you are from Umueghu in Amaegbuato autonomous community Nkpa Bende Local Government, Abia state, your community did this to this woman.
Even when the woman was begging and telling them she’s innocent, they tied her hand to her back, tied her two legs, flogged and filmed her.
Her children reached out to the Behind Bars and we have decided to take this matter up no matter what it will cost us...WATCH.THE.VIRAL..VIDEO
