Leader of Legislative Assembly, Hon. Mrs Cynthia Nwala: beaten up and nearly stripped naked while her car was also vandalized at the Council Secretariat

Mrs Cynthia Nwala, the leader of Etche Local Government Legislative Assembly in Rivers State was beaten and nearly stripped during a fracas at the council secretariat on Monday.

Mrs Nwala’s car was also vandalized.

Nwala alleged that it was the Council Chairman, Obinna Anyanwu, who ordered his Chief Security Officer, CSO, Prince Chinedu Onyeche to beat and strip her.

Speaking to journalists via telephone on what led to the fracas, Nwala said after she and other councillors screened nominees for appointment as supervisory Councillors and special assistants, she decided to go home with the mace of the assembly due to some rumours that it may be hijacked by hired thugs to impeach her.

Nwala alleged that the Deputy Leader of the legislative Assembly, in cohort with some Councillors and the Chairman of Council had also wanted to remove her from office because she hails from Ikwerre ethnic nationality and not from Etche, though she is married to an Etche man.

She added that she also decided to go away with the mace because the Council Secretariat is under renovation as the Leader of the Legislative Assembly.

But Nwala said as she was leaving the Council Secretariat, the Council Chairman ordered his CSO to beat and strip her naked, while her car was badly damaged.

However, the Chairman of the Council denied the allegations of being the mastermind of the incident.

He claimed that his Officer intervened in the fracas between Nwala and her colleagues to calm a charged situation
