Rivers Lawmaker suspended over rape allegation

Hon. Chetachi Onwume representing Igbo One Ward Three, has been suspended by the Rivers State’s Etche Legislative Assembly after a rape allegation was leveled against him.

Honourable CHETACHI ONWUME. A councillor in Rivers State, sexually molested my sister on Monday at her workplace where he lodged at gwarinpa Abuja. She went to give him his bill as he requested. He then grabbed her, strangled her and raped her. He deposited his sperm in her.
