An unidentified lady in Benin City, Edo State is in serious pains after she was brutally dealt with by a mob who inserted pepper into her private part for allegedly stealing a mobile phone.
This dastardly act has now compelled the League of Patriotic Lawyers to give the Edo State Commissioner of Police, Olusegun Odumosu, 24-hours to get those behind the evil deed.
The league’s chairman, Mr. Abubakar Yesufu in a statement, said;
“The League of Patriotic Lawyers has given the Edo State Commissioner of Police 24 hours to arrest and commence prosecution of all the street urchins behind this barbaric, inhuman, wicked, ungodly and unacceptable act, whose video has gone viral on the social media.”
“Failure to unravel the perpetrators would lead to serious legal consequences against the various security agencies, especially the Police and Director of DSS in the state. This ungodly act shows that law and order have broken down in Benin.”
“We call on the governor, who is undoubtedly unaware of this devilish act, and the Secretary to the State Government, a very hard working and God-fearing man, to ensure that the perpetrators are tracked and punished accordingly.”
“We are not concerned about the merit of this case at this moment, but the exhibition of extreme cruelty which is completely alien to our revered culture and tradition.”
For those who don’t know, a video (see below) making the rounds on the social media revealed the incident, showing the lady being stripped naked by a mob, inserting pepper into her private parts for allegedly stealing a phone. The lady was heard crying and saying she didn’t steal any phone as she was being humiliated by the crowd.
