Rahab Emmanuel, a 37-year-old housewife from Gosa village along Airport Road in Abuja, recently faced a near-fatal encounter with a mob that accused her of stealing a man’s manhood. She shed light on the incident and relayed her version of events to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Commissioner for Public Complaints Commission (PCC), Ezekiel Musa Dalhatu.
Emmanuel, a mother of four, vehemently denied involvement in the alleged act, explaining that she was merely on her way to wash a neighbour’s clothes when a man at a kiosk gave her N200 to buy biscuits for her child. She recounted that the same man raised a false alarm while searching for the woman’s house, alleging that she had tampered with his manhood.
“I was going around looking for the woman’s house that asked me to come and wash clothes for her; the man now followed me and raised the alarm, accusing me of having done something as he claimed that his manhood was not functioning again. I told him I didn’t know anything, and my hands were clean,” Emmanuel narrated to the commissioner during his visit, as reported by Daily Trust.

Upon hearing the accusation, the situation escalated rapidly as a crowd of youths converged at the vigilante office where she sought refuge, restraining her and subjecting her to physical assault. Even her attempts to call her husband were thwarted as they seized her phone.
Fortunately, neighbours recognized Emmanuel and contacted her husband, who swiftly arrived and reported the matter to the police. FCT Commissioner for PCC, Ezekiel Musa Dalhatu, emphasized the urgency of a thorough investigation by the police to ensure justice prevails for the accused woman.
It is worth mentioning that the FCT Commissioner of Police (CP), Haruna Garba, recently cautioned against hasty mob justice in cases related to alleged manhood theft, highlighting that a significant percentage of such accusations were baseless, as reported by City & Crime.
