News Focus: A Leading Anti-Corruption Investigator In Nigeria Has Survived Being Shot Multiple Times - Officials Said.



Austin Okwor is reported to be part of a team investigating corruption within the judiciary. He is being treated in hospital for his wounds. The attack happened in Port Harcourt on Saturday night, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said. Last year several judges were arrested on suspicion of corruption in a nationwide sting operation. President Muhammadu Buhari has prioritised the fight against corruption but critics say his administration has targeted only his political rivals.

Mr Okwor was surrounded by a gang who opened fire on him, Nigeria Bulletin reports. Economic and Financial Crimes Commission spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said Mr Okwor had received threatening text messages in recent months."This incident underlines the hazards which operatives of the commission are daily exposed to in the discharge of their duties," Mr Uwujaren said in a statement.
In April President Buhari's office ordered an investigation after the head of the national intelligence agency was suspended over corruption allegations. The president acted after anti-corruption officers found more than $43m (£34m) in a flat in the main city, Lagos.

Last week, Monalisa granted an interview saying "Women should also be blamed for domestic violence".

Not happy with her opinion Uche Ogbodo took to her Instagram page to air her view. According to her, it can never be a woman's fault.

She wrote:
First of all, society looks down on women who stay in abusive relationships and pities them for being “helpless” and “weak.” Domestic violence victims can’t be categorized into a stereotype, but range among all types of women. Yet society places a specific insecure, weak, vulnerable woman into the category of most likely to be in an abusive relationship.

Rather than ridicule or punish the man who commits the abuse, this wrong perception will fault the woman for putting up with it because she possesses these negative traits. Women are taught that it is our personality "traits" th…
