Abia Gang Rape Victim, Feared Dead!

Abia GANG Rape VictimThere is "the possibility that the Abia State University raped victim might have been killed", has been told. Nigerian authorties say no one has lodged a complaint. Five male students of the Abia State University (ABSU) raped a young female student and posted the video on youtube. Reports say the victim insulted one of her rapists who then
 decided to teach her a lesson of her life.
The Gang Rape assailants were named as: Weird
1. Ifeanyi Justin Ogu
2. Jonah Uche (final or extra year accountancy)
3. Zaki (resides in Duberville Lodge, ABSU)
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.
The incident, which is believed to have occured in Abia State sparked outrage nationwide.
But newly elected President of the Students Union Government (SUG) of ABSU, Mr Chidi Uruakpa told that the crime was not commited on ABSU campus.
A Nigerian Lawyer said "that is not a problem because assailants chose frrom where to operate and their targets. So he will please have to tell all he knows about it, where it happened and Miss X's whereabout, who has been kept incommunicado since the incident or may not have survived the attack."
She added that "in law when a Miss X was last found with her attackers, the presumption is that they killed or hid her."

The Minister of Youth Development, Mallam Mobolaji Abdullahi, said on Thursday, that one of the suspects in the gang rape of a yet-to-be identified female had been identified. He, however, expressed doubts that the suspects would be convicted based on the available evidence.
Abdullahi said this in Lagos at a meeting with youth organisations.
The minister said, “More than 70 per cent of the information we have on the rape will not be said here for obvious security reasons. But I can tell you we have information on it.
“The girl is not a student of Abia State University. She was raped in an off-campus residential area of students.
“One of them (suspects) has been identified conclusively.”
Although the faces of the rapists are not seen in the video, the minister said the National Human Rights Commission was on top of the situation.
He said, “Some legal experts have told us that it may be difficult to convict the rapists because the video does not reveal the face of the victims.
“The National Human Rights Commission is working with the Ministry of Youth Development. The commission, which is headed by a competent lawyer, is on top of this case.
“This is law, if we can not press for rape, there are other charges that we can press. I can assure you that justice will be done.”
The minister, at the meeting, fielded questions from some of the 50 selected participants, among whom were Fela Durotoye and Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde, on national issues bearing on youth.
He promised that his ministry would organise a conference for not just potential rape victims but potential rapists, to address the ugly trend among youths.

Sources say 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 likeIfeanyi. One of them identified himself as a 400 level law student, while another claims to be studying IT or Information Technology.

And one of them has a car…Whereas, the federal government of Nigeria has vowed to bring these criminals to justice, Governor of Abia State – T. A. Orji – and his cabinet denied the incident happened or occurred at ABSU…
Nigerians has since demontrated their anger at the occurence;
"These beasts are known", said an activist. Adding "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".
