Five male students of the Abia State University (sadly my alma mater) raped a young female student August 16. Sources say the victim insulted one of her rapists who then decided to teach her a lesson of her life.

In the rape video, which lasted well over an hour, the girl could be seen trying to fight off these animals-in-human-skin. When her efforts proved abortive amidst beatings, she resorted to pleading with them to spare her; but her pleas fell on deaf ears. And when she could not take the excruciating pain any longer, she begged them to kill her, instead of let her live with the stigma our society would pile on top of her already horrendous trauma. As she pleaded with them, the boys laughed and mocked her, asking her to ‘co-operate’ or face two more days of torture by rape.

Rape at ABSU has become a steady occurrence. Most victims of this ungodly act would rather keep mum over the incident than report it and face stigmatisation from the society. So far, there are over 1,356,662 downloads of the rape video.

In the video, the girl’s face is clearly seen but the faces of the five boys remain blurred. One could clearly hear them speak Igbo and English plus refer to each other by names; for instance, one of the rapists said, “Wisdom don dey talk now.” Other names the rapists called themselves during the ‘operation’ include: Chisom, Zaki, Uchenna. Zaki even bragged to the victim, “Do you know who Zaki is?” The fifth name is a little muffled but sounded very much like Ifeanyi. One of them identified himself as a 400 level law student, while another claims to be studying IT or Information Technology.

Ifeanyi Ogu Justin - one of the RAPISTS

And one of them has a car…Whereas, the federal government of Nigeria has vowed to bring these bastards to justice, -governor of Abia State – T. A. Orji – and his cabinet want to sweep this matter under the carpet by denying that the incident happened or occurred at ABSU…PLEASE, folks, let’s take matters into our own hands and do T. A. Orji’s job for him by helping bring the culprits of this crime to justice, using any means necessary: blog, Twitter, Facebook, etcetera.

Jonah Uche

These beasts are known. That the Abia State officials want to sweep this matter under the carpet clearly shows that these cowards are the children of Igbo’s men of timber and calibre. Please, let us put pressure to bear on them to ensure this innocent young woman gets the justice she deserves. Let people cast fear to the wind and come forward with information that would lead to the prosecution of these idiots…Remember, this innocent student could have been anyone’s sister or relative.

And yes, we can do it!

Thank you!

      Clearly, the alleged rapists believed in their style of justice: brutalize a woman because she dared speak up for herself in a manner they deemed insulting: a truly horrible and warped mentality in a democratic country where the rule of law ought to reign. But, ideas like yours contribute in making our country a place that impossible for peace and where justice may never prevail. Should they be killed before they are before a judge in court for a trial? How is the brutal position you advocate different from the very brutal approach they imposed on that young woman?

    God help us in this country! When the Law enforcement agents, that are suppose to defend helpless civilians, turn their faces the other way, it is rather terrifying. And exposes how unsafe we are in this country, but for God’s intervention. Instead of the Police to do a thorough investigation and fish out these bastards, the CP of Abia State still claims that this didn’t happen in ABSU? Trying to protect the image of the State. But what’s the big deal? It could have happened in any other campus in another State. But that shouldn’t be the issue. Instead the Police, Government and Uni authorities should get to work and fish out these dogs. God protect us in this our Great Nation!

    This should not be swept under the carpet. Governor T. A. Orji, the National Universities Commission (NUC), the Abia State Commissioner for Education (a woman and a mother), the Governing Council and the National Council of Women Societies should wake up, shine their eyes and ensure that justice is done. I am from Abia State and it is a shame that this happened in an Abia State-owned institution. There is nothing that cannot happen in a University when unqualified candidates buy admission with money. This is not likely to be the first case involving these animals in human clothing. They have always succeeded but this should be their last bus stop. Abia State University should be sanitized.

      Yes, you are right. things will keep going awry if admissions are bought. Why wont there be unqualified candidates, who would be there to cause mischief, when admissions are sold. Its high time we read our books as students and get into school, and its high time the governments and school authorities, stopped this unqualified admissions into higher institutions. All these are not taking us anywhere.

    Even if the fact turned up in this investigation are true, the police is powerless to act except there is a complaint to them. So the victim, if there really is one, should lay her complaint to the police.

If the girl does not show up, there is not much to be done cos like someone says, she has not reported a case. If she has gone missing or her corpse found, then the police can act on what they have.

    To identify the rapists is not difficult, the victim knows them. Atleast when they were violating her, you could hear her say ‘Uchenna, am I not trying’ which means she knows this Uchenna. The question is, is she not willing to come up and report this to the police for it to be properly investigated and appropriate sanction applied. The person that posted these pictures, how sure is he?

    Bringing this cowardly bastards to book is a collective task that can be achieved….if two or three of the boys have already been identified… we must put pressure on the authorities to find and arrest them… if they are arrested, the victim can identify them, and they can identify the remaining two…. If the authorities fail to take action, then we must do our duty as citizens and undertake citizen arrest and hand them over to appropriate authorities…… this battle must be won… but above all the long term care of the victim is also very very important……

    I hope now Nigerian men will begin to see why increasing scores of women fail to have any respect for their patriarchal dominance over women. Respect is earned not forced through demonic evil acts like rape, battery, subjugation’ oppression and such other vices. The girl (the innocent victim) is clearly vindicated for insulting such animals. I am sure they had displayed behaviour that warranted the insults. Where will they and their families hide their faces now? This is despicable. I will dedicate my whole life to empowering women so that they can raise up good honorable sons and not ANIMALS that will bring them pain and shame all their lives like these five have done. Young girls, please continue to be brave and resist the company of any man with questionable character. Do not wait until they actually strike – You can tell a lot about someone from little things they do or say. Bravo civil society activists, bravo Abike Dabiri, bravo National Assembly and all good Nigerians. We wait for Theodore Orji to write his name in gold on this matter.

    Whichever way, rape is not permissible. Even with the comments of Mezie which seems to point to something unclear about that line, the girl was coherced against her will and that should be noted. It is sad the police is yet to move beyond prehistoric techniques of investigating in an age that can make linkages through what the pictures and facebook conversations of the alleged rapists convey. Sad! But lets keep thios up until justice is done and seen to be done.
