Annie Teriba Oxford
Oxford University LGBT Rights activist Annie Teriba is under major fire. The prominent student released a statement outlining 2 “non consensual sexual encounters”, now her accusers have shared their alleged side of the story and it is damning.

They basically accuse her of rape.

The joint statement was released via a tumblr blog – http://niiwdel.tumblr.com

This statement contains information about rape and sexual assault and as such may be triggering in its content. Please take care when reading.

INTRODUCTION

This is a joint statement from two individuals (who wish to remain anonymous) about the Oxford-based activist and student Annie Teriba. We have co-written this statement because both of us have experienced sexual violence from her. She has now released a statement, but we felt we also needed a voice in this situation, especially as we have issues with the way she conducted herself throughout the process of apparent accountability. We wish to use our statement to shine a light on her behaviour, and to fill in the gaps and questions that have been left by her statement. We recognised that this statement is long, and we have used sub-headings to make it more accessible to read.

THE CONFRONTATION

It is important to begin with her response to being confronted by the survivor regarding the most recent incident. The survivor was initially dissociative following the incident and had blocked out conscious awareness of the trauma, which is a common reaction. The survivor then began to experience flashbacks, which eventually prompted them to confront Annie. She initially appeared shocked, but then explained that she was very drunk and that she had no recollection of any events from the night in which the incident took place. She then made a transphobic comment, and left in a flood of tears which centred the conversation on her reaction and her feelings, rather than those of the survivor. She then immediately messaged the survivor to explain that she was having trouble processing everything, without taking into account how they might be struggling too, and how sending messages like that can be damaging.

THE STATEMENT: WHY IT WAS REQUESTED, HER INITIAL STATEMENT, HER SUBSEQUENT DRAFTS, AND BEHAVIOUR THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS

After thinking about the next steps, the survivor then decided to get Annie to release a statement about what she’d done, and for her to resign from activist spaces and committee positions she held. The survivor’s intentions behind getting Annie to write and release the statement were multi-faceted, but the important reasons were that it was imperative that she was held accountable, that she made a full admission of wrongdoing, that the people she organised and associated with were aware of what had happened, that she should no longer be allowed the privilege of a platform within activism, that safe spaces remained safe, and perhaps most importantly, that such an incident never occurred again.

We wish to highlight what has happened since the request for the statement was made by the survivors through intermediaries. Annie has been incredibly narcissistic, obstructive and harmful throughout the process of confronting her and holding her accountable for her actions. She has constantly attempted to centre everything on herself rather than consider the survivors and how she is impacting on them. We need people to know that the statement that was released on Friday the 9th of October was by no means the original statement that she wrote. We also need people to know that it took approximately 3 weeks from request to publish for the statement to be finally released, which shows Annie has been hell-bent on dragging out this ordeal for us. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the intermediaries who have been extremely helpful and supportive throughout the process, as they too have had to deal with Annie’s disruptive and self-centred behaviour.

Her initial statement was extremely inappropriate and hurtful. It read like a creative writing piece, poetically shifting the blame away from herself, and it was also rife with apologism and excuses. She literally did blame it on the alcohol and also tried to paint herself as the victim in an effort to garner sympathy. In addition to this, she also attempted to use the statement to educate others on the importance of consent and how to practice it, as well as accountability; the irony must have been lost on her. Not only was that disrespectful, it was entirely inappropriate. She made no real attempt to apologise, nor did she properly explain the reason(s) why she was resigning from political activism. She also used the statement to try and normalise her behaviour and humanise herself despite being a perpetrator of violence. The statement was very clearly an attempt from her to practice damage control on her image, portraying herself as responding in the politically ideal way, and glamorising herself for being ‘cooperative’ during the process. This is particularly offensive, because despite appearing so confident in herself for responding so well to being confronted, she was clearly neglecting the fact that she had already been through a mediation process due to sexual violence before.

This instance happened last year, where Annie assaulted one individual in a nightclub. The survivor spoke to a mutual friend who set up a mediation. They spoke, agreed on some terms (including Annie going to consent workshops, doing reading, learning more about consent and not having sex with anyone until she’d done all these things.) The survivor thought this had been resolved well initially. They then heard Annie had had sex with a friend of theirs shortly after, which seemed in contradiction to the agreed terms, although they did not have the energy to follow it up. And it has now become clear that Annie did not change her behaviour, nor make sufficient efforts to do so.

The whole process has been retraumatizing for us and she has placed many barriers throughout, which have elongated this ordeal and seriously affected our mental health. She has attempted to disempower the survivors with malicious intent. The survivors were forced to explain to her why her initial statement was unacceptable after which she was instructed to start from scratch and provided with guidance on what to include. She described one of the incidents in detail in an early draft of the second statement when she was specifically asked not to, which caused the survivor to become triggered. She has made herself uncontactable at points when drafts of her second statement were sent back to her with revisions because some of her wording was unacceptable. She has demanded her own voice by accusing the survivors of “putting words into her mouth”, whilst not giving pause to think how her actions have stripped us of agency. She has used drafts of her second statement to claim that she “genuinely believed” her actions were consensual, after having told one of the survivors that she was so drunk she cannot remember any of what happened. She is lying in one instance then, and knew that the survivor had to tackle that inconsistency whilst reading the subsequent statement.

A NOTE TO CLARIFY WHY “RAPE” WAS NOT USED IN THE STATEMENT

We want to clear up why the word “rape” wasn’t used in the published statement. This paragraph should be taken as an explanation rather than an excuse for the rape apologism contained in Annie’s statement. We are both feminists who believe that non-consensual sex must be labelled what it is: rape. In the original drafts of both statements, the word ‘rape’ was included in the trigger warning, and was later on included in the first paragraph of the second statement, as the survivor was very insistent about this. Annie initially made herself unreachable following the revised statement being sent back to her, and the survivor was later told that she was reluctant to use the word “rape” anywhere in the statement after having sought legal advice. The survivor was told from intermediaries that if the statement contained the word “rape”, the police would be prompted to investigate, and that there would be potential legal implications for all parties involved. Whilst both the survivors had limited knowledge on such legal implications, Annie had the upper hand with more knowledge due to prior events at Oxford, so we reluctantly decided to compromise and allowed for the word “rape” to be omitted, because we did not want the police to get involved. Whilst we absolutely believe she must be held accountable, we have little faith in the police and ‘justice’ system, and we are sadly all too aware of how very few rape and/sexual assault cases actually result in convictions. Reporting rape & sexual assault can be very difficult, intrusive and triggering- all at the risk of not achieving the desired outcome. This is also why the survivor of the most recent incident did not report it to NUS staff, despite it occurring at an NUS conference, as it is likely the police would have got involved. In addition to this, each survivor has their own vision of what justice looks like for them; for some, justice looks like their perpetrator being behind bars, but for us, this means not getting the police involved, and we ask that our wishes on this matter are respected. However, let’s be clear: Annie Teriba is a rapist. After having experienced flashbacks and connecting to their conscious memory, the survivor was able to piece together the events in a more coherent manner, and would like it to be known that Annie Teriba committed two counts of rape in the most recent incident her statement refers to.

THE DANGER OF GLORIFYING ACTIVISTS

Since the mediation following the incident last year, Annie has taken up many platforms to challenge sexual violence and rape culture- particularly in Oxford (http://www.bad-housekeeping.com/2014/07/21/rape-where-is-the-reform-we-were-promised/), whilst not challenging it within and from herself. We find it particularly ironic that she has been a prominent voice against the very actions she herself has committed. There is a real issue amongst feminists and The Left in general of putting individuals on a pedestal, and we believe that Annie has absolutely been placed as such, and appears to exercise no sensitivity in the way she takes up space.

We also wish to make a point here about how certain individuals have reacted since being disclosed details of the incident(s) by the survivors. Annie is a prominent activist, particularly within Oxford but also among students and activists nationally, and it seems her feminist values and politics have made it harder for those who know her to believe the survivors. These individuals have reacted with shock and disbelief, and whilst it is natural, some individuals have centred things on their reactions rather than focusing on the issue at hand, which has been emotionally difficult for the survivors. As mentioned earlier, Annie had been put on a pedestal in activist spaces, and was vocal on a number of issues, however, it is dangerous to misconstrue an individual’s politics with their character. We need to seriously address the way social capital is accorded to activists in our spaces, because when people feel they are a good enough activist for their actions to be excused or ignored, things like this happen.

HOW TO SUPPORT US AS SURVIVORS

Whilst we recognise that it may be a jarring experience for friends of Annie, we urge you to consider and prioritise the experience of survivors. This statement and these processes are one of accountability, not exclusion- as we both believe in transformative justice. Whilst we fully support those who may no longer feel safe to have her in spaces, there are those of you who will not want to entirely turn your back on her. We urge you to hold her accountable; in Annie’s statement, she listed what steps she will be taking, and although it’s her full responsibility to do so, you can also make sure she adheres to her promises.

We were very disappointed in the initial comments that were made on Annie’s Facebook following the release of the statement. Some individuals were congratulating her for admitting to wrongdoing and apologising. It is completely unacceptable to prioritise perpetrators over survivors, or glorify them for admitting to their mistakes and/ or committing to seeking help. In addition to this, we’d like to condemn the right-wing individuals who have been sharing her statement in an effort to politically point-score and/or detract from anti-racist campaign work that Annie has done.

CLOSING REMARKS

Having supported survivors before, we are all too aware that the community often turns a blind eye to such issues, but we urge you to not greet violence with silence. We must not harbour or protect rapists in our spaces. We cannot call ourselves feminists, activists or even friends if we do not put our morals into practice and stand by survivors. We ask that you share this statement as widely as possible to help amplify our voices.

We’d like to offer our support and solidarity to all the other survivors who may have also experienced assault or rape from Annie, or indeed other perpetrators. We’d urge you to seek the support you might need, and have included some links that might be useful:

      My advise to young people don’t do things that will jeopardise your future . This lady is in a bad place and the consequences of her actions may last a life time . My honest advise :
      1) stay away from trouble, and hang out with the right people . Who can cover your mess
      2) if you happen to mess up , never agree to blackmail . Don’t encourage it , you’ve messed up don’t try to find any easy way out . In this girls case I have a strong feeling that they told her to confess and they wouldn’t report her to the police . She confessed on social media , they later decided to identify themselves as victims . This will probably lead to a legal issue . She may eventually have a criminal record which the whole world would know about .
      3) when you mess up get advise from the right people . Legal counsel , your parents not your peers

      It’s sad cause this chic just messed her life up ! Big time ! She will need a lot of will power to stay focused ! It is well ! Youths please act right and when you go wrong don’t agree to black mail without counsel . Blackmailers are traitors !

      The statement here is riddled with so much psychobabble, perhaps to deliberately obfuscate the issue. It really is this simple: if any wrongdoing had taken place, the police is the agency that should be dealing with it.

      That they had deliberations outside of any legal setting, expected to be able to dictate the exact details the statement issued by the accused were to contain without any mitigation or “apologism” is unreasonable and sounds like blackmail. Irrespective of what had happened, they should have gone to the police if they felt so wronged that an statement like the one she issued, as well her resignation from her high-profile activist positions was not enough.

      Annie’s dubious, and quite extremely moralistic stance on several issues however, appears to have become her undoing. A shame.

      Rubbish. Why can’t these survivors be coherent of their accusation. I expected, to read a better understanding of what her rape entails. Don’t have to give details but something constructive.
      Now, it sounds like some petty drama.

    Bloody ridiculous waffle!. What exactly did she do. I truly do NOT believe she actually raped anyone. How does another woman rape you and you do not struggle and push her off.

    Really ridiculous. Maybe they want her to kill herself. I do not know her but it sounds like she really forgot her roots and got caught up. So sorry for her poor mum!

    So these babes are feminists, but they don’t want a rapist to be prosecuted?
    Seems to me like they are trying to get-back at Annie or assassinate her character. Bcos, ko te mi rara.
    Abi? How do you say ‘this person raped me, I want her to write a statement about it, but I don’t want her prosucted, Infact, don’t use the word rape. Just apologise publicly. O, I don’t like ur apology, i’ll tell the world you what happened bcos I don’t like ur apology.
    Really?

    Please these people are a bunch of retards abeg.

      How does a girl rape another girl? is it because they are both female? ever heard of strength? Obviously if one is stronger than the other, the deed can be done just like men…Abi you have not heard of men raping men or boys?

      Anyone can be raped by anyone irrespective of gender as long as consent was not given for sexual activity. Have you thought about the fact that the victim might have been roofied/drugged? Or that she could have been too incapacitated (by alchohol or hard drugs) to give consent? These are just two scenarios of many. I know a few females who were subject to non consensual sex in high school (all female fggc) by seniors. So it is very possible.

    • Niyoola

      October 19, 2015 at 11:29 am

      What I mean by how does the rape happen is:
      Does the rape involve any kind of penetration; as in Fingers, Dildo or both genitals being in contact. Reason I ask this is that I find woman on woman sex a bit clumsy. Even with strength, both hands will seem to be involved in the act itself…… (I know some victims resign themselves to their fate, but I’m just wondering)

    The politicization of seemingly serious issues is the onset of its trivialization.
    If you agreed for the word rape to be dropped from the statement and are unwilling to go to the police, why have you decided to go the route of trial by the media otherwise known as trial by the mob?
    I find some of the conditions that were reached by parties involved bewildering. You asked her to desist from having sex with anyone else for a time frame? What exactly is that?
    Seems the “victims” have decided to extract as much pounds of flesh as they possibly can from the girl in the hope that it will heal their “pain”.
    In seeking public support with this long epistle, they have refrained from describing the exact acts that both parties (on both occasions) agreed not to term rape. Why go to so much detail if you are unwilling to lay bare the events?
    In all of this political gestures and moves, I hope a serious issue like rape would not be trivialized and undeniable victims made to suffer.

    October 18, 2015 at 10:38 pm

    The other article was ‘….. groping scandal’. Did she touch/grab the lady? That’s sexual assault/molestation etc….. not rape? Lawyers, please educate us.

    • Frankie Knucles

      October 19, 2015 at 8:32 pm

      Sexual assault is touching without consent for the purpose of sexual gratification. This could be touching of the thigh, leg, armpit (yes, armpit), breast, etc. for sexual gratification. The issue is the intent of the touching, not necessarily where the victim has been touched. Rape is penetration of an orifice, rectum, vagina or mouth, with sex organs, digits or objects.

    They stated she raped them .. but they’re not giving any details except the fact that she was reluctant to admit it was non-consensual… atm..maybe it was a misunderstanding??miscommunication?? she has has apologized but she doesn’t think it was non-consensual…..who is right and who is wrong here? and as someone above said..do they want her to kill herself???

    The use of the term survivor though? What a bunch of jobless university kids! They have literally taken their human rights class and made a reality show of it. Your problem – ati Annie, ati ‘Survivors” is too much alcohol. I read the excerpt below and gave up on these children. It’s Judge Judy you guys need.

    “The survivor spoke to a mutual friend who set up a mediation. They spoke, agreed on some terms (including Annie going to consent workshops, doing reading, learning more about consent and not having sex with anyone until she’d done all these things.)

    @femfem it is very possible for a lady to rape another lady. Their’s this very old movie which featured Jamie F, Ice T and that lady on the tv series single ladies. The movie was about a strip club, drug etc. If you’ve watched that movie, you would know it’s possible for a lady to rape another lady. Especially if the rapist is stronger. I don’t trust some of this activists abeg. Some people trust them so much and it gets to their head. Then they start misbehaving.

      I was expecting you to quote some law or a criminal case, not a movie. I believe rape has to involve penetration, so unless you’re a woman with a penis (hey Cait), you can’t technically rape another – man or woman. On the other hand, a man can legally rape another man because one could penetrate the other. Sexual assault could cover incidents where legal rape is not possible. I stand to be corrected on my understanding.

    • Idomagirl

      October 19, 2015 at 7:12 am

      Actually it’s very possible for a woman to rape another woman, penetration doesn’t have to happen first for it to be rape, but even if that’s the a case, if a fellow woman drugs another woman than uses a dildo on her isn’t that then rape? (This is just an example not saying this is what Ann did).

      And in more liberal societies such as the UK the definition has expanded in recent years, there doesn’t have to be actual penetration for it to be classified as rape.

      Even in Nigeria I’ve heard countless stories of non-consensual sexual acts between women which I will personally classify as rape, but I’m not sure what our law says concerning these kinds of incidents. I know that it classifies male on male rape as sodomy which is a punishable offence, but I’m not sure if it recognizes female on female rape.

    • Vortex

      October 19, 2015 at 8:26 am

      @ Author Unknown, firstly the legal definition of rape varies from place to place and so, an act described as rape may not necessarily involve penetration. But even if we assume penetration to be a mandatory everywhere in the world, female to female rape would still be possible (and implicated). This is because:
      1.) “Penetration” is technically not restricted to private part-private part action. The insertion of certain body parts into another person’s mouth is actually also a “penetrative” act.
      2.) Even if we exclude the oral aspect and restrict the definition of penetration to private parts, female to female rape would still be possible because penetration of a private part doesn’t always have to be done using a sex organ; many objects could be used.
      3.) Let’s, again, imagine that the use of objects is ruled out and the definition of penetration restricted further to human body parts, how about using hands??? Can’t a female penetrate another that way?
      Female to female rape is very possible and it happens across the world but unfortunately, it is not given as much attention as it deserves. A lot of times such cases are dismissed because of the false idea of rape being only a male-female affair… This subject (not the activist’s drama but the broader one of female to female rape) is important because it is a necessary step in the theorization of females as not just victims all the time but as probable offenders that can prey on themselves and even on males too (an obvious and real possibility)!

      Digital penetration (fingers) is rape.

      Google ‘fisting’ @ author unknown. Its a form of penetration practiced by female/female sexual partners. I seriously hope that the comments i am reading are by very young people who do not know better. The world can be dangerous so it does not pay to have this level of naivety and ignorance about daily happenings in the world around you.

      Here is my finding under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 (UK), and I guess it supports my position. Note how under “Assault by Penetration”, it makes a distinction that this can be committed by either gender.

      Rape (section 1)
      The elements of rape are:
      (A) intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person (B) with his penis;
      (B) does not consent to the penetration, and
      (A) does not reasonably believe that (B) consents
      Penetration of the mouth is included.
      Rape is still a crime of basic intent, and drunkenness is no defence.

      Assault by penetration (section 2)
      The elements of assault by penetration are:
      A person (A) intentionally penetrates the vagina or anus of another person (B) with a part of their body or anything else: The penetration is sexual
      (B) does not consent to the penetration, and
      (A) does not reasonably believe that (B) consents.
      The meaning of sexual, consent, reasonable belief and the evidential and conclusive presumptions all apply to this offence.
      Key points
      There has to be penetration of the vagina or anus but not the mouth.
      Penetration is of any part of (A’s) body (e.g. finger, tongue, toe) or by anything else (e.g. bottle).
      Offence can be committed by either gender
      This offence should be charged where there is insufficient evidence to charge rape, for example, if the victim is unsure if penetration was by a penis or something else.

    • Frankie Knucles

      This is fatuous and naive. Under criminal law, rape is the penetration of a person with a sex organ, digit (finger/toe) or object. Hence, anyone can rape anyone.

    Lol….so they changed their trigger word from rape to survivor?? This their story included the word survivor more times than Destiny’s child’s “Survivor” Lmao!! Ode lawon people yi sha!! Were their lifes in any form of jeopardy when the non-consensual sex happened? Egbami! they can’t even call it an attack, how then are they survivors?!!! Victims? probably, but survivors?? Please don’t minimize the trauma that rape victims and survivors have been through with this kain college shenanigans (like the previous commenter said)
    We must look gullible to these fools!! …they will say the way she handled a situation was bad and unacceptable or accuse of something and then if you take time to read their interpretation of her actions, they can’t even say anything tangible!! TF!! I was here thinking they were going to say she denied it or blamed the victim!! But she just said she was having trouble remembering the saga!! what the heck is wrong with that? smh! They are out to finish her and they have, but even if she deserves it don’t insult our intelligence by writing textbook wey no make sense.

    Anyways, Miss Teriba, you see your life on the outside?? it’s now the narrow-minded homophobes, transphobes , sexphobes and all your made-up BS/PC butthurt words are the ones that are more willing to hear your side of the story. How does your medicine feel in your mouth?? Need a spoonful of sugar? When they say practice abstinence or in the very least have some discretion, you will say they are repressing your sexuality…how’s that working for you now boo-boo?? My dear, just don’t kill yourself o!! Pay for your indiscretions, mind your business going forward, keep your strong hands to yourself o and find more worthy causes to expend your zeal on…

    We need lawyers to read between the line of these statements, though the statement aren’t graphic enough, what is termed rape in UK with its technicalities is completely different from Nigeria. I have read Daily mail account of this story, Daily mail went further to give insight of Annie’s family. I pity the mum, the young girl is a very brilliant girl, I watched her activism on display on YouTube, I was impressed. My suspicion is that her fellow feminist wants her cut out, she’s dominating them intellectually, they are jealous of her rising stardom in the race & gender activist community. I attended university here, though for msc, I have seen binge drinking first hand and the way the girls looses their senses. I pity Annie, they want to destroy her. I hope she will be strong enough and the family can offer enough support for her. Come to think of it, how would an average Nigeria struggling family receive the shock that their daughter is a lesbian ?

      Rape in the UK – lack of consent plays a huge huge role. Here is the thing, alcohol lowers your inhibition, it can also give you a false sense of assurance that there is consent even where there is none or only partially eg (give me head but no penetrative sex.. sorry for being graphic but actually cases these. lol) . I cant remember the case law or how the courts solved the issue of intoxication and rape to be honest. But my point is, these “survivors”.. hmm mm. I cannot take you serious if you are more interested in attacking a person’s character and pseudo intellectualism than giving facts about what actually happened. At the same time they are trying to get public sympathy as rape (?) “survivors”! Ahan! I am not saying she might not be guilty cos who knows, but these “survivors” their hands no too clean.

    She is a Nigerian making waves which the ferals don’t like. How could they get rid of her apart from media mauling her to death. They make a story out of nothing and try to make it relevant. When they should be exposing the real pedophiles within UK’s top government. God help Annie come out strong.

      …and where she admitted to non-consensual sex? Would you be saying the same if a boy admitted this?

    The statements that I’ve read have been very ambiguous about the sexes of the people she ‘raped’. I don’t know where people detected that her ‘survivors’ are women (from both cases). I thought these ‘survivors’ would provide a narrative on what happened with this Msc thesis I just read. All this grammar gist and y’all couldn’t describe what ‘rape’ in your cases constituted? Obviously, they must have discussed the occurrences with the intermediaries who drafted this statement for them so it’s not like they had to relive their experiences by writing it themselves. And if it was going to hurt them if such description had been put up, I daresay this whole dragging will have just about the same effect (it’s anonymous too). And I also find their use of the word ‘survivors’ a bit stretchy and alarming. If Annie’s legal team ‘allowed’ them use the word ‘survivors’, then it must mean it was an attack which should be taken to court. Why are they making it seem they’re doing her a favour still if they’re sure their case would hold water in a court? (shebi it was a terrible attack they survived). I don’t want to be biased cos Annie is Nigerian but I think we’re all asking valid questions.
    And the part about them making abstinence one of her terms for amiable mediation? Hilarious ba, I mean not even if it’s with her boyfriend (or girlfriend). And they vexed she didn’t keep her word but they omitted telling us whether the sex was again non-consensual. Or it didn’t matter? Toh

    BULLSHIT! Both Annie and the “survivors” are full of shit. In all this drivel I have read the “survivors” have not said in black and white what she did, although they have gone to great measure to describe her as uncooperative etc but failed to describe incidents and what really happened. If you can write a prose of at least 1500 character, that includes words that denounces a person’s character and you want me to believe that, then I need details. I am not even in Annie’s camp either as she has been very creative with her words and it was obvious that there was more to the story. As it stands, both sides are just plain full of shit. Lots of politics going on here and I hate being played about.
    @Koffie. I know right? telling her to abstain from sex as a condition of settlement and mediation? WTF and then then feeling re-traumatised because she had “Sex” with one of your friends? It sounds like a love triangle gone wrong I tell you. Just bullshit. I am even angry now. Let me go jare. lol

    Personally me thinks these Oxford students have way too much time on their hands. Its a mess of epic proportions; one which seeks to denigrate the hard earned reputation of the institution.

    If criminal charges need to be brought then so be it, otherwise stop grandstanding on the pages of newspapers and gossip blogs.

    This girl Annie, though may have her faults in this matter, this whole saga seem to be trial by press is ploy to silence her and future political ambition nothing more. When you hear speak in these debates she is very strong in her arguments in United state is racist and this must piss some people off. They don’t just want her to stop talking, they even want her to kill herself. I know Britain if this girl was guilty as they claimed, they would have arrested her and charge her to court. Her accuser should be bold enough to come out publicly and state their case, stating what she did, rather than hide behind words such as survivors, and hide behind a incoherent oxford written essay, that plays with big words but no substance.

    Annie if you are going to be forthright in your conviction and express your views, you must know not everyone will like you, and you must know the enormous position that you are in. You were one among many intelligent girl from Africa to be accepted into Oxford, they could not deny you intellectually but the fact still remain you were a minority who could have carved out a fantastic career for your self and your family and made history. You were a sheep amongst wolves who refuse to put her head down to get the job done. Instead you behaved like bull in a china shop. Many were waiting to pull you down and you fell right into their trap by allowing alcohol to destroy you have worked for. I lived in the uk for a long time, so I know when a group of people have it in for you, they will capitalise on any little mistake, due to envy.

    You may be intelligent but you are not grown, you are still a young lady with a lot to learn about the society you are in. I just hope you learn a valuable lesson from all this, stay away from alcohol. I just pray you can still bounce back. They may have destroyed your career by putting you in the press, but pray for strength to be able to reinvent your self but don’t let them destroy you. If your parents were powerful and rich it would not have been the press, again this you forgetting who you were and where you came from. it would not have happen to your colleagues. am saying what you did was right, if you are indeed guilty but the school should have handle the matter more delicately, but because you have built this media presence for yourself this why they have taken it to the media to silence you.

    I do not believe Annie is a rapist, the survivor’s arguments make no sense. They obviously had consensual sex and felt out. There is jealousy and envy towards destroying a brillant Nigerian scholar. I feel so sorry for Annie, but she brought it to herself. She should have used her brain better and not get involved with the wrong crowd. I hope the truth will prevail in the end.

    ANNIE TERIBA (Nigerian Oxford gay activist ) was BULLED INTO CONFESSION.
    (see accusers blog.)
    I am sure you must have heard about “The Confession” made by Annie TERIBA(Psalm 83:4) the Oxford University Nigerian Gay Activist . I for one was worried about it but couldnt not say a word until I had seen something from her accusers.
    I was initially worried as i felt that what they were accusing her or should have been taken to the Police if that had really been the case and I felt that there were some sort of bullying involved.
    You see cops tell you “YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT and ANYTHING THAT YOU DO SAY can AND MAY BE USED AGAINST YOU IN A COURT OF LAW.
    This of course should have been her stance before her accusers.
    Instead and reading from their (accusers) blog , it is clear that they bullied her into saying something that has not been established.
    If someone says you stole something of theirs they will need to establish several things
    1. They had ownership
    2. that you took it and they didnt give it
    3. That you have that thing.
    In the case of rape or non consensual sex, they will need to establish that
    1. Sex took place and to what extent
    2. They the accusers didnt want the sex to take place.
    b.Any witnesses
    3. If any of the above did happen then to what extent did it happen ie was it with violence ie with a gun or knife pointed to the victims head etc. or was it a case of not putting on the brakes in the throws of love making etc .
    These and other points are what are to be considered before a conclusion that rape took place.
    For me I felt that the accusers could not establish this hence their not going to the authorities and I felt that jealousy played a part in the accusations (see the accusers blog here niiwdel.tumblr.com) when they talk about the way Annie is and also in the subsection “The danger of glorifying activists. and also other many points they themselves stated.
    For me if there had been a crime you report immediately to the police and not dilly dally about it.
    I dont buy it that someone blanked it out , they are not children the alleged rape was not at gunpoint (ie violent) that could trigger any blanking out.
    What i do know is that
    (1) People often cry rape when they are ashamed of the sex they had , it happens in hetro ville as well as in queer world.
    2.) Undecided women tend to display this after their lesbian encounters esp after they encounter anti gay sentiments they feel a sense of shame.
    (3)Lesbian women out of jealousies that the woman they had sex with had gone off with another ( like when straight women cry rape when the man they want goes off with someone else).
    Whilst I do not rule out the fact that Ms Teriba does need lessons in reading people more , the shock which they accused of her displaying was a result of her not reading people better – ie. seeing the ganging up & dastardly bigotted evil plot beforehand.
    Unfortunately she has now confessed into something which is yet to be established in a court due to bullying- they told her several times to issue a statement they said. Isnt it that harrassment?
    I wonder during that time did she receive anyhelp herself, she certainly would not have been able to get it from her Nigerian parents who not only do not understand “this gay thing” but would be too ashamed & bewildered to deal with any such allegations.
    We sent you to get an education i can hear them saying not understanding it all.
    I am sure that the NUS did not offer any help nor was she offered any legal advice as to how to respond to the situation. What a set up!
    My concerns now are for her wellbeing, not only is she in the 3rd year of her studies but has to face all of these allegations .
    If any one knows how to reach her please tell her to contact UK BLACK PRIDE and or yours truely. So she can get support .

    Carnal knowledge of a female without her consent is rape and carnal knowledge of a woman’s vagina is complete when the vagina is penetrated by a man’s penis. Simply put, this is a common legal definition for rape. It does not matter how deep or how little the penis went into the vagina. In this instance, with what were these ‘survivors’ penetrated? Even if they were penetrated by Anne’s fingers, it is still not rape. If there was no penetration, then whatever happened could be labeled as sexual assault and not rape. SMH, I bet these so called survivors were not only drunk when whatever sexual encounter took place but I bet they’re oyibos

    What kind of victim ensares an alleged perpetrator into writing a public statement. Shouldn’t the police be the correct avenue for their grievance? It appears race played the key role in this unsightly mess. If it had been a white lesbian caught up in this, they wouldn’t be asking her to publicly disgrace herself in such a fashion

    This just appears to be a case of racial hatred. They probably view her as less than equal so are trying to bully her into degrading herself publicly. It’s a shame she didn’t figure out these whites in time. They are truly sneaky and now she may have destroyed her chances of career advancement through this shenanigans.
