Nwosu is expected to pay the sum of 5 million Naira awarded by the State High Court in Uyo, the state capital.

The court, presided over by Justice Theresa Obot, had on August 3, 2023, awarded the said sum to Ukonne.

The suit was premised on violation of her fundamental human rights by the police officers, akin to that of Ogwu.

It was instituted against Nwosu, alongside the Commissioner of Police, Akwa Ibom State Command.

Other respondents include Inspector Anthony Uchebunjo of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Raymond Amu of the State CID, and Mabel Inyang of the Anti-Robbery Squad.

Justice Obot also awarded the sum of 100,000 Naira against the respondents to cover the cost of litigation.

The court ruled that the detention of Miss Ukonne and torture was unlawful, unconstitutional and satanic.

In the meantime, the police officer that reported the incident involving Inspector Ogwu has promised to provide more details of the incident.
