Woman Hospitalized for Three Months After Landlady’s Assault Seeks Assistance

Imabong William, a middle-aged woman residing in Enugwu-Ukwu, has been hospitalized since August 17 following a disturbing incident involving her landlady, Amaka Okonkwo. The altercation arose from a disagreement over rent increment, leading to Okonkwo allegedly pouring scalding water mixed with pepper on William.

The victim, originally from Akwa Ibom, spoke to journalists on Friday, highlighting the severity of her situation. William expressed her ongoing struggle with burn pain, revealing that the hospital had ceased providing medications for over a month due to her accumulating medical bills, which now amount to N650,000.

Ejes Gist News has learned that Amaka Okonkwo is currently in police custody in connection to the assault. In her plea for assistance, William reached out to Governor Chukwuma Soludo and his wife, Dr. Nonye Soludo, as well as the Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare. She also appealed to well-meaning individuals to come to her aid in this challenging time.

Despite a gradual healing process, William emphasized her financial constraints as a trader, rendering her unable to settle the mounting medical expenses. The victim’s desperate call for help underscores the need for swift intervention to ensure her recovery and justice in the face of the alleged assault.
