Abuja: Journalist, Pregnant Wife Assaulted By Politician

An Abuja based politician and aide to the chairman of Bwari area council in the FCT Abuja , Mr. Shokolo, a native of Ushafa community may be in for the worse trouble of his life time for beating up a Journalist, Mr Chibuisi Mba, who is also a member of Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, OMPAN.

Mr Shokolo, a serving Supervisory Councillor in the Bwari LDC in company of his thugs were said to have beaten up the Journalist and his pregnant wife, Mrs Blessing to stupor and smashed her mobile phone in the process.

The incident reportedly occurred in Ushafa villiage, Bwari Area of FCT ABUJA yesterday, Wednesday 27 June 2018.

 According to Chibuisi, who shared the story online, “the incident happened this morning as i got a phone call from my former landlord, Mr shokolo who asked me to immediately report to his house but on sensing danger from the tone of his voice, I asked him to give me sometime to round up with what i was doing”.

He further explained that few minutes afterwards, Mr shokolo came to his house with his thugs to beat him and his pregnant wife up, claiming that he ( Mr chibuisi ) is anti-APC.

Mr Chibuisi noted that his former landlord, Mr Shokolo allegedly accused him of working against his chances in the area because ” I reported the wrong he metted to me while I was living in his house”.

DPB gathered that the matter had since been reported to Bwari Area Command of the Nigerian Police while the pregnant wife was referred to Bwari General Hospital by the Investigating Police Officer in charge of the case at the Area Command.

Meanwhile, efforts to speak with Mr Shokolo over the allegations proved abortive as at the time of drafting this report.
