The owner of the pharmacy where a lady was beaten, stripped naked and filmed for stealing milk and other beverages in Asaba, Delta state on April 13, has been arrested and detained. Read the initial report here.
Activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, says the investigation shows the lady doesn’t have a child as earlier claimed and had also stolen previously.
Gwamnishu says he is however against the inhumane treatment meted on the lady.

RE: LADY BEATEN UP, FILMED AND VIDEO POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS.
We wish to inform the public that Mr. Ndobu has been arrested and detained at OWA OYIBU Divisional Police Station. He’s arrest was facilitated by Behind Bars Human Right Foundation in collaboration with Nigeria Police Area Command Agbor.
Some days ago, the video of a lady that stole milk from a pharmacy store in Delta State went viral and we quickly got into the case.
UNBIASED FACT FINDINGS
Asides being stripped naked, beaten up and filmed, we also gathered that the Anglican CHURCH KNIGHT who happens to be the owner of the pharmacy shaved off her hair after ordering his supporters to stripped her while they made a video of the scene and posted on social media. This happened on 13th April 2020.
Today, he was arrested and detained. Now in Police custody.
Meanwhile, we also found out that the lady does not have a child as claimed and the milk she stole wasn’t for her child. This may be a case of kleptomaniac as we discovered she has stolen more before.
Note that, we are in no support of stealing, but we detest any form of inhumane treatment meted on any citizen both male and female. We always advocate for the law to take its course #DueProcess
No matter what, do not take laws into your hands. Always do the right thing.
Be aware we did not call for donation of any kind to the said lady. We have contacted some organizations who can continue from where we stop. #Rehabilitation.
