Police arrest three Enugu pranksters over viral video

Police Operatives serving in Nsukka Area Command of the Enugu State Command, have arrested three pranksters for making extreme viral videos wherein a lady was being dehumanized, stripped naked and have her hair forcefully shaved.

The suspects identified as Obed Chekwube Ugwuanyi a.k.a. MC Sharp (male), aged 32, Chinenye Agbo a.k.a. Star Ella Ada (female), aged 26, and Anastasia Onu (female), aged 26.

According to a statement issued by the spokesman of the command, Daniel Ndukwe (DSP) on Wednesday, “the trio and others at large are involved in the viral video wherein Chinenye was seen being beaten, her cloth torn and stripped, and her hair forcefully shaved on the allegation of beating up Anastasia, who is Obed’s girlfriend, and giving her a human bite on the chest”.

The viral video generated public outcry and condemnation due to the inconceivable assault, inhuman and degrading treatments meted out on Chinenye as seen in the video.

However, according to the police, preliminary investigation revealed that the trio were claiming that the video was a prank meant to garner followers on their social media accounts.

Meanwhile, the state commissioner of police, Ahmed Ammani, while condemning the act, has ordered the State CID Enugu to thoroughly investigate and prosecute those found culpable, to serve as a deterrent to anyone who may want to perpetrate such an act under the guise of a prank.
