    Rape, and violence against women is treated very lightly in nigeria, he will get a slap on the wrist. So sad, that’s why we need more feminists in nigeria and africa.

    I never wish rape on anyone, but i must say i find it hard for me to be sympathetic to these blind worshipers. It’s troubling the number of things pple will do in the name of religion.

    Stupid move on the part of this girl. A girl who does not want anything illicit refuses to visit even a normal man in a hotel. When going to the hotel you should already have it in mind that you might hit 3rd base if the person is not your blood relative.
    People have refused to use their brains, so anyone parading in the name of God would be their predator. Shine your eyes well well. But some people trust so called Prophets more than God who is the creator. Go to bed Jaree

    We are really going to blame the victim. She was raped and all you can do is blame her. This is why victims don’t com out because of you lot who never put the accusations on the rapist. How dare he take advantage of someone? How dare he attack her? And you all are just as bad.

    I really do not get why people would blame the girl. No in any situation or circumstance means NO!!! for goodness sake. Her actions may not have been well thought out but the fact still remains that she is the victim here and the “prophet” is the criminal. Kindly direct your insults, curses etc to the appropriate party. NO means NO
