Wazobia FM Sports Journalist Chapele Assaulted, Seeks Justice

A sports journalist with Wazobia FM, Ugo Chapele, fondly known as ‘Suo The Queen of Sports’ is seeking justice at the Bode Thomas Magistrate Court in Lagos after she was brutalised by a motorist identified as Wisdom Moses, his pregnant wife and brothers on her way home after work, Saturday PUNCH reports.

Chapele ran the pidgin English match commentaries at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

An eyewitness account stated that a car broke down along the Lekki-Epe Expressway with a truck from the Lekki Concession Company trying to tow it off the road, which forced motorists to drive slowly.

The eyewitness said Moses rammed his car into Chapele’s from the back and in the wake of the accident he came down and attacked her, hitting her severally, which left her battered and bruised with injuries on her face and her body.

“We were all shocked when a man hit the car in front, came out of his car and started hitting the driver in front with two other men and a woman,” our source said.

According to Chapele, there are deep cuts on her chest and neck following the attack by Moses, his two brothers and a pregnant woman.

“I pray I get justice in court. The criminal case has been adjourned till March 11, 2023,” Chapele said.

Narrating her ordeal in the hands of her assailant to our correspondent, Chapele said she has been left traumatised after she was brutalised.

She said, “It’s been a few days and I’ve found it hard to stop crying. The horror of thinking that I was going to die over something they actually caused really traumatised me.

“My saviours that night were the street urchins at the scene and the LCC operators who called the Maroko policemen. I must commend them because, within a day Wisdom, his brother Chidera and his sister Stella had been arraigned and remanded.”
