WOMAN, THOU ART HATED.

I’m glad it was a woman who witnessed the broad daylight sexual molestation of a group of secondary girls numbering about 60 at Falomo Ikoyi, Lagos State. I struggle to find the right words to express my emotions in situations like this that have become all too common. In fact this latest incident isn’t even a common sight but an introduction of a frightening dimension. Secondary school boys who systematically planned to attack, molest and rape girls on their last day of school as a way to ‘celebrate’. The secondary school girls were their next door neighbours; only a wall separated them. They had pairs of scissors that they used to cut the skirts of the girls. The girls that had their skirts cut had worn double spandex which alluded to the...

ESTHER AND CHIBOK (STOCKHOLM) SYNDROME

The name Stockholm Syndrome was derived from a 1973 bank robbery in Stockholm, Sweden, where four hostages were held for six days. Throughout their imprisonment and while in harm’s way, each hostage seemed to defend the actions of the robbers and even appeared to rebuke efforts by the government to rescue them. Months after their ordeal had ended, the hostages continued to exhibit loyalty to their captors to the point of refusing to testify against them, as well as helping the criminals raise funds for legal representation. ****************************************************************************************** I had no words for the news article reporting that one of the returnee Chibok girls wanted to go back to her “husband”. As...

SHADES OF RAPE

And so another story broke last week on social media from a lady on how she had been raped at various times by her boyfriend and his friends (who she named in clear detail) eight years ago when she was only 17 years old. He was 25years old at the time. Of course the Court of Public Opinion is sharply divided on whether or not she was actually raped. After I read and re- read her story, it was very easy to say that she knew exactly what she was getting into or rather had gotten into and that it wasn’t rape that took place but the shenanigans of a teenager who wanted to play with the big boys. Reading his own version of events which was the posting of Facebook correspondences between the two of them during the brief interlude told an even different...

THE BEAUTIFUL MONSTER CALLED SEX

THE BEAUTIFUL MONSTER CALLED SEX

This is a topic that captures everybody’s attention, yet it is the one subject that is shrouded in hypocrisy, deceit, lies, indiscipline, selfishness and irresponsibility. This is simply put. An act that was created to bring the most intense pleasure and bring forth human life has had the very essence of it destroyed. We are gradually turning into a Sodom and Gomorrah. They were thought to be the top range of depravity but they will blush at some of the acts we have perpetrated and are currently engaged in. Now we have the following forms of the beauty that was: indiscriminate sex, underage sex, sexual abuse, paedophilia, necrophilia, rape, marital rape, sexual harassment, perversions, sex slavery, sex trading and crimes of passion these are the current faces...

RAPE

Case in point: The Rape of the Abia State University female student by the Abia 5 Initially, I had no intention on writing on this subject but the outrage and outcry from those who watched the video clip and those who haven’t seen the video but have helped in raising awareness about the dastardly act changed my mind. In brief; a young lady was gang raped by 5 male students (now infamously named the Abia 5) and the whole sordid act was recorded and eventually it found its way unto the World Wide Web. I am at a complete loss for words Rape as a crime has been going on for centuries in different parts of the world; during wars, conflict, date rape, incestuous rape, stranger rape, intruder rape and the versions go on. There was a time in our society that the word...
