A level 14 officer of the FCT Administration, Mrs. Josie Mudasiru, who was allegedly physically assaulted is crying out to women organisations and the FCT Administration for help.
It was gathered that a level 12 officer of the Administration, Mr. Nnachi Okafor, allegedly slapped and manhandled the female staff (victim) over disagreement relating to union matters.
Also, Mr Nnachi purportedly described the female victim as a prostitute who sleeps with men both in the office and brothels to curry favour.
Our correspondent gathered that trouble started when the victim escorted another staff of the Administration to seek clarifications on some issues bordering on staff welfare in Nnachi’s office, who is the incumbent chairman of FCTA Chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ).
While narrating her ordeal, the victim said she was not only assaulted but dehumanized and abused by Okafor, threatened to seek justice in a competent court of law.
Her words: “I took a colleague to see Mr. Nnachi Okafor who is the chairman of FCTA Chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists to seek certain clarifications on some welfare issues.
“I was not part of their discussion not until Nnachi raised his voice to a high pitch to demonstrate his anger on the ranging issue. I only caution Nnachi to bring down his voice because of the office environment.
“To my greatest shock, Nnachi suddenly turned his uncontrollable anger on me and called me prostitute who sleeps with men in different offices to curry favour.
“I was angered by his uncivilized description of my person. I told him that he should be ashamed of himself because at 50 years, no wife, no girlfriend or child could be traced to him.
“Before I could know what’s happening, Nnachi descended on me, and with two dirty slaps on my both chicks.
“It took the efforts of my colleagues and other men to rescue me from his hands.”
The victim also disclosed that the matter has been reported to the FCT Police Outpost in the area, stressing that ever since her life has been under threat by Nnachi.
According to her, “the matter may end up in court since some women Non Governmental Organisations have been contacted to take up the matter because my life is under threat”.
Meanwhile, when contacted on phone for reaction, the alleged assailant, Mr Nnachi who declined comment, only said that the matter is being handled by the authorities of the FCTA and the Union.
