Human Rights Activist Prince Gwamnishu Harrison Rescues Child Bride In Anambra State.



Delta born Human Rights Activist and founder of Behind Bars Initiative, Prince Gwamnishu Harrison has shared pictures showing the approval of his petition to rescue a 15yr. old bride in Ozubulu, Anambra State.

When I said I will retrieve her back, you don't need to doubt me. I wasn't joking. No matter what it takes, I will make sure she doesn't spend this weekend in Ozubulu," he posted via his Facebook Page.

Yesterday, he posted the following article.

15yrs old Chinwe married to 56yrs old Ozubulu man. #RetrieveChinwe 
Step 1: Petition approved by Anambra State Police Command. Parents invited for interview by Area Command Ihiala. Interviewing the mother, she said her daughter is of age to marry because she too married at the age of 13years. 
We have informed them the consequences of their actions and advise them the chances they have. 
Next: Retrieving Miss Chinwe from Ozubulu.
Thanks to Efficient Grace Ume who is on ground to see that Justice is served and Barr. Ajuebor Favour for his continued free service to us and Anwulika E. Udanoh for all the phone calls and prayers. 

Meanwhile, the Anambra state Commissioner for Women Affairs who hails from Ozubulu has promised to take responsibility for the welfare of the 15yrs old Chinwe and her son.

About a week ago, pictures of the child bride Chinwe and her 56yrs old husband who looks like an autism patient emerged in the internet.
This prompted Mr. Gwamnishu and his team to move to secure the release of the minor in conjunction with some associates from Ozubulu community.
