"Ex-lawmaker allegedly beats 68-year-old Grandma in Delta state "

According to PUNCH news, It was gathered that the Former Member of the Federal House of Representatives and Director General of Delta State Capital Territory Agency (Joan Mrakpor) has beaten a 68yr old Grandmother (Mrs Adaeke Odiaka) at Ubulu-Uku, Aniocha at the South Local Government area of Delta state.

It was gathered that the trouble started on Saturday when Mrakpor, in company with her younger brother, Jude Ugbah, who recently emerged the chairmanship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the March 6, 2021 local government election, and her aides stormed the residence of the victim in search of her grandson, Nnamdi Odiaka.

According to a source it was stated that Nnamdi, whose alleged posts on social media were not favourable to Joan Mrakpor, was traced to his home where the ex-lawmaker and her team gathered to beat his grandmother when they could not find him at home.

“She (Mrakpor) came with her supporters but unfortunately, they did not meet Nnamdi and she started slapping the grandmother before the old woman lost consciousness and was rushed to hospital for medical attention,” source said.

The source added that the incident prompted youths of Ubulu-Uku to the streets with placards with different inscriptions such as: ‘End Mrakpor’s brutality’ and ‘This is not the first time’, among others.

The protesters barricaded the road to register their grievances against the alleged injustice by the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa appointee.

Mrakpor, who is the wife of the state Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General, said the allegation was untrue and described it as the handiwork of her political enemies.

She stated, “It is the handiwork of the enemy. You know that my brother just won the chairmanship ticket of the PDP, so the blackmail is politically motivated.
