According to Nwanyanwu, after beating her up, one of them broke her head with a chair, leaving her bleeding profusely.
“I was shouting for help. Nobody was there only them and their family. They were all happy saying that I will not do anything. Nothing will happen. That their brother is a councilor.” she narrated.
