We have received a disturbing video which 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 is light skinned and spoke in Yoruba. We cannot immediately confirm the identity of the individuals involved, but it is clear that a young lady is being raped and this cannot be condoned or accepted as the norm in any society.
Below is the transcription of the video:
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)
The Rapist: [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).
The Rapist: Why you dey…?
Accomplice 2: [Interrupts]…Did I say he should not record it?
Accomplice 1: I am not recording it nau (Swears).
Guys: Incoherent arguments…
Victim: Continues to cry, wearing her clothes…
This is very disgusting. We have decided not to post the video on our website site due to the nature of the incident. The guy should be in jail. Look at the pictures very well and see if you can recognize him.
