It is now about 18 months since a video showing the rape of a young lady by five students of the Abia State University (ABSU) surfaced and went viral, sparking outrage across the country and forcing the university and the police to acknowledge the event and investigate it.
YNaija received yet another disturbing video from a concerned reader, which apparently shows a young lady being violated by a man in the presence of at least two others who ignored her plea for mercy and continued to trample on her dignity without remorse.
The suspect in the video clip spoke in Yoruba, is light skinned and approximately 5feet 8inches tall.
We cannot immediately confirm the authenticity of this video, the identity of the individuals involved, the location, or its origin, but it is crystal clear that a young woman is being raped and this cannot be condoned or accepted as the norm in any society.
Please see screenshots of the video and endeavour to give feedback [mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ] so that the suspects can be identified and handed over to the authorities for questioning.
Let’s all say no to rape.
The rape suspect with a phone in hand
The video open with an obvious rape going on. The victim is writhing in pain and resisting her assailant (the suspect in the video) who over powers her and forces his way into her. After the unconscionable assault, the following conversations happen.
Victim: Ejoo (Please)
Suspect: [Talking to his accomplices] – Ma a ya mi mo (Don’t take my pictures anymore)
Victim: Aye mi ti baje (My future is finished)… crying and screaming…
Accomplice 1: Saying something incoherent… (I am not taking the pictures)…
Victim: Continues screaming…
Accomplice 1: ‘Paddy’ mi catwalk (My friend is cat-walking)
Victim: Crying… Ejo eye ya mi (Please, stop taking my pictures)
Accomplice 1: Se mo ya e ni? (Am I taking your pictures?)
Victim: Crying and screaming… (My life is finished).
Accomplice 2: Kai kai (Stop, stop).
Suspect: Why you dey…?
Accomplice 2: [Interrupts]…Did I say he should not record it?
Suspect 1: I am not recording it now (Swears).
Victim continues to cry wearing her clothes…
