A widow, Mrs Blessing Ukamaka Ulasi of Umudala Ndimgbu in Otolo Nnewi, Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra state has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Abubakar Adamu detailing him on how she was molested by soldiers.
She alleged that soldiers invaded her property at Nnewi on December 30, 2020 on the invitation of her co-wife, Mrs Janet Ulasi and her children, claiming that the soldiers molested her in the presence of other helpless citizens.
This paper reports that Mrs Ulasi has been having issues with his Co wife over their late husband’s properties since the demise of their husband, Mr. Sunday Ulasi who died many years ago.
The widow, a mother of six, in the petition alleged threat to life, deprivation, intimidation, infringement on her human life and encroachment by her co-wife and step daughters including Ukamaka, Ogechukwu, Chinenye, Chinyelu and their husbands.
She therefore begs the IGP to order for immediate arrest of the individuals and as well produce the soldiers they invited to molest her.
In another petition by an activist, Amb. Ogbuka Titus Chukwudum of the Corruption Watch written to the AIG zone 13 and Anambra state commissioner of police the group urged the police authorities to caution the culprits to desist from meddling into the family of late Sunday Ulasi.
The petition reads in part: “We beg you to arrest those men whose actions are contrary to the rule of law and are ready to kill madam Blessing Ulasi and her children to posses her late husband’s inheritance”
When contacted, the first daughter of Mrs Janet Ulasi and one of the accused, Mrs Chinyere Udechukwu in turn, accused her step mother of crying wolf, challenging her to provide evidence of molestation by soldiers.
“That woman you see is evil. Can she give an evidence that she was molested or intimidated?
“The truth of the matter was that My mother had no male child and she went and married my father as second wife and since she beard a male child for my late father, she had not allowed my mother to know peace.
“My dad forsaw what will happen and gave my mother two piece of land, one developed and the other undeveloped for farming.
” All of a sudden, this woman started selling lands including our family house (Iru-Obi) at the rate of seven million naira. We pleaded with her to stop because the lands are her children’s inheritance. What we did was to retrieve the sold land and she started ranting.
“We are protecting the properties not dragging lands with her. We are all married, even her seventeen years old son was against that.
“My mother has been with me for Seven years now because of her. My mother demanded that we should build a house where her husband gave her. Our late father will not be happy where he is if the family house is sold”
