Akwa Ibom First Lady, Mrs. Martha Udom Emmanuel, wife of the Governor of Akwa Ibom State has handed down warning to imprison any man caught beating his wife anywhere in the state.

The Akwa Ibom State First Lady said this at the inauguration of the ONNA Chapter of Eket Senatorial District Women Forum and Empowerment Scheme sponsored by the Family Empowerment and Youth Reorientation Path-initiative (FEYReP), her pet project in collaboration with the forums for Empowerment.

Speaking to the women on issues about gender-based violence, the governor’s wife said that violence against women in the State will now be taken seriously.

Mrs Emmmuel said, “We are against violence on women in Akwa Ibom State. If you do it and I have evidence against you, I will commit you to prison”.

“There are many women who have been beaten to death by their husbands. If you kill your wife, who will take care of your children?, The First Lady asked in surprise.

Although the Governor’s wife acknowledges that some women a times provoke their husbands to anger, she maintained that such provocation should not be a reason for wife battery.

Speaking further, Mrs Emmanuel, who noted that innocent and vulnerable children are many times violated sexually by neighbours or relatives, cautioned mothers not to unnecessarily hand over their female children to the care of untrusted relatives or neighbors.
