Panic As Ebonyi Teenager Is Beaten To Death By Airport Worker

Listen to article

One of the security men who was said to working at the site of the Ebonyi International Airport under construction at Onueke, in the Ezza South Local Government Area of the state, whose name was given as Chukwuma Anyigor, aka Ite Igwe, has allegedly beaten a 17-year-old girl, Nwuka Nwafor, to death.

The Eastern Updates gathered that the late victim usually engaged in menial jobs at the construction site as the breadwinner of her family.

A worker at the site, who didn’t want his name in print, said trouble started when Anyigor instructed the victim to evacuate some corn husks which were dumped at a particular section of the airport.

The source said the young girl, who said she neither ate any corn nor dropped husks at the place, refused to comply with the directive.

The source added that Anyigor became annoyed by the girl’s action, picked an object and allegedly hit the teenager’s head with it, adding that the victim fainted.

The source said, ‘On that day, Nwuka and one of her friends were moving from one section of the airport to another in search of work until they encountered Mr. Anyigor, who particularly directed the deceased to pack the waste which was dumped by someone else.

‘But the girl refused and Anyigor, who could not control his anger, started to beat the girl until she fainted.’

The deceased’s elder brother, Sunday, said that Nwuka was rushed to the General Hospital, Onueke, and later to the Alex Ekwueme University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, where she was confirmed dead by medical doctors.

Another sibling of the deceased, Ekene, said, ‘My sister died struggling to survive and she deserves justice. As a family, we demand for justice.’

Contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chris Anyanwu, on Wednesday, said the matter had not been officially brought to his table.
