Human rights activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, has withdrawn his NGOs assistance to the mother of five whose sister, Cynthia Obi, came online to seek public help in rescuing her from her abusive husband. In the viral video, Cynthia alleged that her sister had endured several beatings from her husband for eleven years and that each time they reported the matter to the police station or an NGO, he used money to free himself. Cynthia who was crying, shared a video of her sister’s bruised face and asked for assistance. Moved by her cry for help, Harrison who runs Behind Bars Initiative, an NGO, mobilised his members in Abia who were able to locate the woman. He announced that the husband had been arrested and was in custody of Divisional Police Headquarters, World Bank, Aba. An hour later, Harrison shared another post saying his group has withdrawn the case as the battered wife pleaded that her husband should not be detained.
