Governor Dave Umahi, today ordered the flogging of civil servants who came late to work. This was seen in a video shared in Twitter by Prof. Chidi Odinkalu.
In the tweet, the Prof said ” So, today in Ebonyi, @GovDaveUmahi went for a project inspection & then instructs the soldiers to flog – yes flog! – civil servants who arrived late. Not done, Dave Umahi supervised the flogging. Tomorrow, he’ll be rewarded with seat in @NGRSenate“.
We are yet to get a reaction from the governor or any official of the state. We’ll keep you updated once any official statement is released.
