The State House of Assembly member, representing Njaba State in the Imo State House of Assembly, Hon (Mrs) Uju Onwudiwe, has revealed how she narrowly escaped death in the hands of a male colleague.

Mrs Onwudiwe was attacked with a bottle of wine, by State Assembly member representing Ahiazu Mbaise State Constituency, Hon.Samuel Otuibe. Otuibe threw bottles at her during a meeting of State House of Assembly members, at the residence of the Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Amara Chyna Iwuanyanwu.

The meeting which has its main focus, being the non-payment of salaries of House members and their aides for three months, by the Speaker of the State Assembly, Rt Hon Chiji Collins.

Trouble started when another female member, Hon Mrs Ngozi Obiefule, was addressing the gathering, and Hon.Otuibe was said to have rudely interrupted her. The interruption didn’t go down well with Mrs Onwudiwe, who was said have urged Otuibe to let Hon.Obiefule finish what she was saying.

Onwudiwe’s reprimand, was said to have infuriated Otuibe who picked up a wine bottle and threw it at the female lawmaker

While reliving her ordeal, Hon Onwudiwe expressed shock over what happened, stating that the attack was a clear attempt to kill her.

She said that before Otuibe threw the bottle towards her, two of her colleagues, Hon Heclus Okoro and Fred Nnodumele, had blocked it before the bottle landed in her direction.

She stated that Otuibe didn’t stop at throwing bottles, but also threw a glass cup at her which injured Hon Okoro and Nnodumele and smashed the window blinds in the meeting room.

Onwudiwe, who stated that she was not friends with Otuibe, but wasn’t enemies with him, believed that Otuibe was playing out a script.
