Mustapha (in red) with Ohimai

The man facing major allegations is speaking out for the first time. Ever since Sugabelly‘s harrowing story of abuse, rape and manipulation broke, there has been no official word from the other side.

In this exclusive interview, Publisher of SIGNAL, Ohimai Amaize and Editor of SIGNAL, Yemi Adebowale which took place in Asokoro, he tells his side of the story.

You can read the entire interview on the SignalNG site HERE.

In the interview, he confirmed a brief relationship with Sugabelly which he claims began after she turned 18 years old. He also denied all rape claims. Read below and click HERE to read email communication reference in the interview.

Who is ‘Sugabelly’ to you?
Lotanna (Editor’s Note: It is BN’s policy not to reveal names of rape victims unless they waive anonymity which Sugabelly did via her blogpost on the incidents) as her real name is called, is someone who we were colleagues together while I was serving at an IT firm in Abuja called Alteq. She was a staff at Alteq. We were colleagues for a while and at some point we dated for about two months. I came back to Nigeria in 2006, and it was at Alteq I first met her. I’m not sure how long she had worked there before I came to the company for my NYSC. It was a long time ago. I was about 24 then. We talked like every other person. There was a time she had a party for the office, I thought it was a party for the office but it was her birthday party, her 18th birthday party. It was in March of that year. I didn’t go for it. I usually don’t go to office parties. I had another business. I was working at my company and at the IT firm as well. So one day at the office she came to me and harassed me that I missed her party and I said, oh, don’t worry I will make it up to you. I will take you out for sharwarma and I took her to 212; then they used to sell sharwarma. This was the first time I took her out. There are emails to corroborate this. From then on we started talking. She was a very interesting personality. She is very brilliant and she reads a lot of books. I read a lot of books too and I don’t meet people who read a lot of book. I used to read a lot of fantasy books. All these Game of Thrones people are watching as movies now, I read them as books like ten years ago. Knights of Shallaman, Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, Inheritance Cycle, many many books I read years ago and there were very few people who knew these things. She was one of them. She read a lot and she wrote. She was a very brilliant writer; in fact, I think that was why she was working as someone’s secretary at the office. She used to write a lot of letters for the company. Claims have emerged from her that as at January of 2007 I was in a relationship with her and doing all sorts of wicked things to her. Just like now, in December, precisely December 17, 2006, I lost my mum. I was in the UK. I watched my mum die. I loved my mum. I brought her body back to Nigeria, so just like now I was going through a period of grief. So it wasn’t possible all the things she is claiming that I did. I would be mourning.

How long did your relationship (affair) with her last?
Our relationship lasted like a month and a half. Not even up to two months. I found out she was sleeping with my friends. She slept with a couple of my friends. I discovered and told her about it. She told me she loved me, she wanted to marry me and was madly and deeply in love with me. And I told her it’s not possible, we can’t get married because I am not at the stage where I wanted to be married. And you’ve had something to do with my friends, so the relationship ended. While we were in the relationship, she had told me things about her mum, that she hated her mum, her mum wasn’t there for her and stuff like that. She sent me an email once making reference to her having visions of violent rape the first time that we had something physically. She said she had visions of violent rape from a past memory and that we weren’t close enough for her to tell me the details. On one occasion then when we spoke on the phone, she said I shouldn’t abandon her, and then she told me that her mum’s boyfriend raped her. She said a lot of negative things about her mum. This was part of the reason I didn’t want to release these emails to protect her.

But the main reason I am doing this is because I got a call today, someone told me that her friends disclosed that she’s being planning this for while, she is actually writing a book and planning to finish a book, she wants to start an NGO, she wants to appeal to the US government about surviving rape in Africa and she wants to use my family, because of my family’s political name to get traction. I heard she is getting influential people involved, I hear she has involved the lady behind the Bring Back Our Girls campaign, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili. Dr. Ezekwesili reminds me of my mum. She reminds me of someone who should have been my mum and if someone said something about your son, you shouldn’t immediately go to the world and say “Oh, you are this or that.” At least call your son, hear him out. And this is not even about me wanting to say anything to defend myself.

Please read the communication between me and this girl. Everytime I sent her a message, it was always about “How are you doing? Hope you are doing okay? Don’t be too nasty in college. But I know you are very smart and you will do well.” Even in the emails, I mentioned that I encouraged her. She even sent me a message on Facebook apologizing for flirting with my friends, how she loves me and I told her, it’s okay. It’s not the end of the world. And now, people are saying I’m such a beast and I’m such a monster. You didn’t even talk to me. You didn’t even ask me… These things are so horrific. What kind of person can actually do these things? Not only did I do that and I did it with my younger brother that was just 15 back then? I did that with my older brother who was about 30 years old then? And this older brother is not my immediate older brother. He is two brothers ahead of me. Then my cousin? Then my friends? Then the Nigeria Police Force? This is such a movie.

How is your family reacting to this?
Of course it’s very hard. We are mourning. She’s been releasing these this for a while. She’s been doing this for a while but my family has kept quiet all along because we know the truth. Yes, some of my family members are really shaken right now. We are grieving. I have just been orphaned. I loved my dad. My dad is a hero. Anybody from Kogi State knows that. Look at his burial. How many people have received his burial? Look at the whole country? If we were such wicked people, if my dad was a monster, would people react? There was a rumour that my dad had risen. If you saw the people the way they were praying and rejoicing. And now this girl has used this unfortunate incident to capitalize in painting my family as evil…

How long have you been married?
I have been married for like six years now. I got married December 15, 2009. And that was when my problem with her really started; when she found out I got married.

Have you ever raped anyone?
Come on, why would I do that? It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. I can never and will never support such heinous act. Come on! It’s not even a question you ask a normal person. It’s like asking, have you committed murder before? Because it’s such an inhuman thing! And I understand why people would do this and she’s brilliant. Because she knows human beings are emotional and sentimental. Play on their intelligence. Play on the fact that women have been raped before and for us men, we hardly speak up. I am not saying men are angels. I’m not saying I am an angel. But I have never raped anyone in my life before. I am happily married. I have three little daughters. I can’t even imagine it. God!

You know what? I am going to step out for those who have been accused falsely. There are a lot of people who have been falsely accused. You know, because of my last name, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to speak up. You see, people don’t even need to hear me speak. Just read the conversation I had with this lady and you can read her blog. It’s just a blog. You can compare the two. In my email conversations with her, you can tell that I have genuine feelings for her and she has genuine feelings for me. We are communicating as human beings. Then you read this blog and it’s something else. In her mails to me, you will read her asking about me, my brothers, my friends, my cousins, telling me how she knows that I’m so hardworking and that I’m a good person. I don’t understand how that translates to a blog that says I was such a terrorist.

What do you think she wants from you?
It’s fame. It’s simple. Fame. She has skills and in her heart, she’s found out that you know what? My blog isn’t really getting a lot of traction, I’ve been working on this story, I’ve been writing a book, so let me put out this story first. First, she got some Twitter people to put it up, when that didn’t get as much traction, she resorted to this. That was the groundwork for this. Now she has put this on her blog and everybody is going to her blog, she is about to launch a book on surviving rape in Africa; all of this is some sort of elaborate plan to make money and fame to the detriment of someone who hasn’t done anything to her. Whatever it is that’s bothering her, I think her mum should speak to her. Her mum honestly needs to speak to her. Her being in the US and being away might not be the best solution. She should actually have a sit down. What is bothering her? She told me she hates her mum, that her mum’s boyfriend raped her. Let her talk to her mum about that.

      Dear all who seek the truth, I don tire biko. Its been a long day of reading!

      Since i read this story yesterday, i became shattered and disillusioned. Not because i know sugar belly (i don’t), but because, some 3 to 4 odd years back i came across her blog.

      Needless to say, it was dark in there. Suicide attempts, thoughts of death and depression. I glanced over, and vamoosed out. Was not in the right “head space” at the time as well so i didn’t want to add anything to make me more depressed.

      “Bakura” she calls/ed him…… sometimes “elwe singollo” or “king of pain”…… I phased out, get over him, i repeated. END.

      WELL…… Until this happened

      I have been through her whole blog, from 2007 when she met her “baruka/king of pain”, till the last post. From her CONSISTENT crys, 2007 TO NOW! Heres the low-down:

      1. She was in love/lust/infatuation/obsessed with him. (WE HAVE ALL BEEN HERE!)
      2. They started DATING when she was seventeen! FACT!
      3. Depending on who’s version of truth we believe (HERS!) HE AND HIS BASTARD FRIENDS RAPED HER!……yes…..some other times it was just him.
      4. He made her believe it was normal, she was doing what “pleases him”. He coerced her…. it became continuous, a game, a routine. She numbed herself to please him. He became her world…..Her Nigerian God.
      5. She always went back. Even at the end, when he made it strictly clear it was OVER. Seems like he became disgusted with the “***Little Beast Whore”*** he made, the monster he created. He got tired, was probably entering a new phase in life….While she, on the other hand, was stuck on “Never”. She saw not a world without her “KING OF PAIN”, and she, his “QUEEN OF BRUISES”.
      5. What broke the camels back? He got engaged to “aisha” (SHE FANTASISED ABOUT HURTING THIS GIRL SO MANY TIMES, READING IT BECAME ALARMING!). But he fed her mind with more disillusions and promises of love than ever before. THEN HE GOT ENGAGED/MARRIED and she couldn’t deal.

      All these happened between the ages of 17 to 21. DUDE MIND-FUCKED HER FOR A VERY LONG TIME, and even being across the atlantic couldn’t release her. For a very long time, she obsessed, reminisced, wished. She tried to move on, suicide/reconciliation/depression……… He was all she’d come to know.

      Me thinks she is just moving on. After her episodes of physical torture/numbness/being MIND F-ED! by him and his crew, and years of constantly tormenting herself over and over and over again, She forgave him. BUT THIS IS HER CLOSURE.

      I bet she feels goods now.

      To constantly talk for years and NO-ONE listened. Over and over again, he kept winning and she kept loosing. Her voice was silent. WELL. Sugarbelly WE HEAR YOU BABY, almost 9 YEARS LATE, BUT WE HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR BABY!

      If you ever read this, i hope you find peace, i know daddy wasn’t there, never was, never cared. Mummy tried i guess? Some say she didn’t try hard enough. Its not easy trying to be the adult between two grown babies, worse still when you find solace in a GROWN MONSTER.

      Jesus loves you chika. Beautiful belly! ****Grown AMAZING WOMAN!***** Remember that! and btw, now this is off your chest, stop the suicide thoughts/attempts, work on the depression and your self esteem. YOU’VE COME TOO FAR TO GIVE UP NOW!!

      I STAND WITH SUGARBELLY!……… From your #spirit.sister. Love always.

      God let justice be done I will not comment on this issue because it is dangerous for me to say what I don’t know. Proverbs 18:17 says that the first to plead his case seems right, until another comes to cross-examine him. If not for God, Solomon would have judged wrong. Therefore I do not want to justify the wrong person and accuse the right person. Lord please reveal the truth in Jesus name.

      The interview is so incoherent. His only defense is, “pity party”. He’s definitely guilty bcos he has nothing to really say. Reading sugabelly’s blog, I’ve always seen her as someone who is emotionally, psychologically messed up. One who is wild in her thinking and rebellious. And I’ thought she must have had a disturbing childhood. And I hope she’s getting all the help from therapy, most importantly CHRIST. However, this is a rape case to bring awareness to a criminal act that happens in Nigeria but it’s brushed under. The rape victim is blamed. It’s complicated. And a lot of guys believe if a woman is not fighting or denying a sexual act, she’s enjoying and in agreement. That’s not the case at all. Women are best at hiding their true feelings.

I have read through both parties’ stories and either of them could be lying or better still, they both believe they are the victim.. Bottom line the girl had serious issues and the guy had no business dating a teenager at the time.

      In almost all of my years researching a topic I have never seen a one that is as simple to ascertain the most credible source as this. On one hand, we have the alleged victim revealing an instant messaging thread (probably Imessage). To me it is a One-sided convo with the recipient only asking her to reiterate Names of her alleged victims.

      One the other side, we have a chronology of events via screen shots of Facebook chats with dates and time as well as emails with recipients addresses, dates, time and even time zone. The emails offer richer convo and her consistent one-side rants

      To sum it all up, the Impecable timing of the allegations this time around is uncharacteristic of someone who is obviously not rational because as the rest of nigeria is thinking about the loss of a father and a leader or at least a famous politician… She is thinking of spreading allegations to taint his name..

      Just today I watched an investigative report on Cnn about a guy who claimed to have tattooed “Jeb Bush 4 prez” on his neck if his video of Jeb Bush promoting the Apple watch had 1m views…. And at the end of the day the sensible guy faked the whole thing saying he just saying He just sat on his garage and made the whole thing up on Twitter…

      True, and nice point made, her messages were one sided, we didnt see conversation between two ppl, we just saw only her messages, if it was a real conversation, at least the other person should have been asking questions and she will be replying. She got an imaginative brain all right and the dude confirmed shes a brilliant babe. Look at the facts, this girl has all to gain by this, her blog==(more traffic), her name—(popular), her upcoming book(more sales). Even if this really happened, when she got away to the US, why did she still keep in touch with this guy you claim did horrible things to you, i read some messages she sent him while in the US. When anyone reads her story, the will feel rage for the guy but please ppl, we are taking this femininity and womens rights too far and they feel they can do or say anything to implicate the men and society will believe them, thats just the way it is. With time truth will come out, for guys, i advice you record stuff and let them know so they wont come out to blackmail you tomorrow when you are up the ladder, chikena!!!!

    This guy is really stupid! God bless her soul that she started speaking about it as early as 2007. This guy saw a broken teenager and used her as a pawn in his sick games with his friends. The focus should also be on the friends that partook in these games . I can just imagine the 17 year old broken her doing this things thinking she was doing it to please the love of her life. Please parents let your children know u love them so they don’t seek love else where…. You don’t want to know the length people go to seeking love and validation. Can we remember the story about that 14 year old that kept running back to her abuser after the NGO pulled her out, imagine when she gets older and wiser and reflects on what had happened to her and how the guy was supposed to know better….. Then someone will say no it wasn’t RAPE it was consensual!

    Truth be told, I believe Sugabelly was raped at some point…however, I’m not certain YET that she was raped by this Mustapha guy….I only say this because of the mail she sent him saying….

    “Balked when I saw the bed.. I’ve never been good with beds… they scare me… visions of violent rape flood my brain and I get goosebumps… it’s like having no air… there are reasons for that… perhaps you’ll find out later.”

    That quote suggests she had been raped prior to that encounter and Mustapha was not aware of it. What is not clear from those mails is what happened further down the line.

      Hmmm…I just went on Sugabelly’s blog and read her earlier posts from 2007. I’m afraid there is a direct correlation between those blog posts where she uses coded names and the events she has described in her most recent post, this time with names.

      I am now swayed in her favour as I imagine she later opened up to him about whatever she referred to in the quote from my previous comment and he used that against her.

      I sat on the fence initially because sometime in 2012 or so, one SamathaSiren girl on twitter came up with a ridiculous story one night and rallied so much support, only to tweet the next day that the story was made up to promote one Sean Blink’s mixtape and that she and her cohorts could manipulate NG twitter whenever they pleased.

      I however fail to see how she could have been planning this since 2007. I hope you find justice and healing Sugabelly. YOU ROCK!!!

    If you’re violated report to the Police and head to the Courts!, if you’re slandered(libel in this case) head to the courts. Public Opinion means jack shit if the court says you’re innocent.

    Mr Audu take your problem before a judge and leave social media, you now have children to protect their name.

    This interview did not give any information nor did it make you innocent. You keep referring to the email and Facebook chats which again where pretty useless and didnt exonerate you. If anything it made sugbellys claims more legit. Me Audu, you have not said anything here I’m sorry – and your friends who raped her are all mute. She accused all of you not just you.. Why are the others so silent? I’m sure they are waiting for it to blow over. I don’t believe you simply because you people and your antics are very well known in Abuja. You aren’t fooling anyone. I advise you take it to court because sugabelly has confirmed taking this to court. Goodluck dealing with other women who will testify against you.

    At this point, the police need to step in. Have him arrested, have her analysed and let’s get to the bottom of this. Some1 is obviously lying and the truth has to come out pronto or else people would suffer on both sides.v

    If Mustapha can support with at least a documentary evidence of the rape of this lady by her Mums boyfriend before they met, then this girl certainly had a problem. I have read and digested her tweets, the reaction from people etc. The fact is let us first remove sentiments from this discourse. The fact is an average Nigeria woman even in the western world believes a the story of a woman when it comes to rape. An average Nigerian man/woman hates politician children bcos they appear as oppressors with exotic cars on the road. Musthapa will never never get any sympathy based on those 2 perception of the public. Let’s critically examined this issue, this girls mother allowed her to get home at 12am at the age of 17-18. That says something about irresponsibility, the Mum and Dad are divorced, the angle of her mums boyfriend raping her, can Mustapha substantiate that?. Can Mustapha also substantiate her age when they met, was it 17 or 18 thru their numerous chats or messages. The whole world or Naija has crucified Mustapha, am not a lawyer, if this girl decides to go to court, if Mustapha can substantiate the rape he alleged from her mums boyfriend and the age they met, the case will be thrown out. Don’t let us use emotions to judge people bcos we don’t like them. We shouldn’t forget the girl in the USA that alleged Timaya raped her. A man was this week released from US prison after 16 yrs from a fraudulent case of rape after the victim confessed otherwise. Musthapa from what I have read is a typical Naija senseless bad boy with money, they party hard, do drugs and those shits even rape. The substance of this report is that this girl has been suffering sexual abuse prior to meeting Mustapha, I stand to be corrected, reading their exchange on Facebook, this girl has a big insecurity which was not as a result of abuse as a 17 or 18 yr old but as a result of abuse of as a kid. Mustapha and his friend indeed might have raped her, why can’t we extend our line of investigation to her Mum,and her lovers. It’s important for investigation and public discourse, this lady’s Mum from what she wrote and from Mustapha wrote is an irresponsible hoe who looks like sacrificing her daughters care for her wordly enjoyment. If look at Mustaphas interview,he was stressing daughter-mother relationship was non existent, she needed a rock to depend on and that happens to be Mustapha who ended up destroying her more. If Mustapha is culpable, the Mum was worse. If anybody should go to prison, the Mum first, then Mustapha.

      Mr Babalola sa,

      What exactly is it that you are trying to say with this epistle?

      She was damaged from a previous rape or not, correct up bringing or not, she was used and taken advantage of. I do not care. The mistreatment prior to her meeting Mustapha fella, which I have no doubt in my mind occurred does not justify the actions by these atrocious excuses for men.

      I don’t know why most Nigerian people including a large majority of men, always want to have some excuse to justify rape or someones actions.

      Saying she wasn’t raised in a ‘responsible’ manner what excuse it for her to be raped. Because even if you haven’t said it directly, with your weaving and bobbing of words you are trying to blame the victim here. Why must we look for her mother first??? We have this mofo here live and direct let’s deal with him..

      I am absolutely fuming. This thing in Nigeria is rampant especially amount young groups of guys that are over privileged. Use their good looks and status to manipulate women. I am aware of ppl who have been in similar situations. They come across somebody who vulnerable and then pass the girl among their friends. They use tactics of denying they are friends with each other so that the girl can feel comfortable around them and feel as if they are sleeping with them without any later judgement because the guys ‘are not friends’

      This retatrded comment must be from one of Mustapha’s friends, trying to justify the actions of this mofo.

    • Paul Babalola

      November 28, 2015 at 8:24 pm

      Haba, am not supporting or justifying Mustapha. Typical Naija emotion at play, my argument is if Mustapha will be prosecuted or shamed in the public domain, Sugarbella mama deserves worse. She destroyed her daughter not Mustapha, Mustapha was just an evil opportunist who added petrol to it. Your reply is basically to crucify him solely bcos he is a typical “Nigerian man” that you Bella Naija ladies despice. What about the mother, she should go Scott free bcos she’s only a woman. This girl was already emotionally wrecked b4 meeting Mustapha, Mustapha as a criminal and evil minded player just destroyed her more. A mother that will allow her daughter to come home 12 am in the night should be jailed. If she had guarded her daughter closely, she won’t end up with perverts like Mustapha. Nigeria is such a crazy country that u cannot leave your 5 yr old daughter to male relatives talkess of allowing a 17 yr old girl to party her life and come home 12am. Mustapha is evil but the Mum of Sugarbelly before God is far more guilty than Mustapha.

      And there it is again, blaming a WOMAN for the sins of a man. The mom doing a terrible job with her daughter is independent of the fact that her daughter was potentially raped! Saying that it is the mom’s fault is removing the blame from the alleged rapist. Why should this even need to be said. Common sense is not common. As a woman, I thank God that I wasn’t born in Nigeria. May the commenters come and attack me, but this is just wrong.

    • dee

      November 28, 2015 at 9:02 pm

      But he didn’t say it is the mums fault alone. All he said was the guys are wrong no excuse, but the mother didn’t help the situation. Point is the mother failed as a parent and if you can’t be a responsible parent to your child, he/she stands the chance of being raped or being a rapist. So to me both parents failed rasping their children mustafa parents failed him by not teaching him how to properly treat women and Lottanas mother in this situation failed by letting her be an adult too soon.

      Can you also clear the fact that in the email, you apologized for flirting/sleeping with his friends? Which means you agreed to some accountability. But then in the blog, you portrayed it as you were coerced.
      And also, in the email to mustapha where you made reference to a rape situation, was that your way of indirectly pointing at him bcos it looks like you were making reference to another rape situation.

    • @DrOsaz

      November 30, 2015 at 12:28 pm

      Hi Sugabelly. I empathise with you regarding all what you’ve been through and still going through. I’m not the type that would swiftly comment on online tabloids (in lieu of my medical experience with a couple of rape victims and the dynamics) but after checking your blog and social media threads, I’ve seen too many inconsistencies for me to believe either party. For example, you sent this mail to the accused: “Balked when I saw the bed.. I’ve never been good with beds… they scare me… visions of violent rape flood my brain and I get goosebumps… it’s like having no air… there are reasons for that… perhaps you’ll find out later.” (Meaning a previous rape experience).
      Having noted that, I must point out some bitter truths regardless of the aroused sentiments by the typical Nigerians:
      1. You are a victim of a heinous act punishable under the law (no doubt). My question to you therefore is “any report made to the police force yet IN D LAST 8 YEARS?”
      2. The accused is not guilty until proven otherwise by an approved court of law. Hence, it’s unfair for Nigerians to cast a stone. I’ve seen two victims brought to me in the hospital in 2008 and 2009 who later asked for forgiveness for framing the accused’s up on a mutually consented affair, claiming they did it out of vengeance for jilt. This doesn’t exonerate the index accused here as there’ve been more true rape victims.
      3. The inconsistencies in your assertions and those of the accused leave less to be relied on, hook, line, and sinker (at least for any mentally sound and not emotions/sentiments driven).
      4. Emotional healing and freedom is the ultimate need of yours now, which you will most likely only adequately get from a professional therapist and coach- seek for it (if you’ve not) ‘cos the matrices of your emotional hurts will keep finding expressions in all facets of your life if they are not collapsed and new ones re-imprinted on your mind.
      5. Unguarded social media vibes is not the best route to healing (even though, expressing your mind is therapeutic), but if it’s designed for gaining fame and publicity for your hurt-inspired project, well, kinda smart but not right.
      6. Find the lessons in your challenge and turn them to your life purpose with its passion expressing itself through your gifts, talents, skills, and vocations. Please, do recognise that a rapist is also a victim (broken homes, poor fatherhood, societal ills, etc.). So, do the universe a favour by including them in your planned project for addressing this heinous act.
      7. Build a relationship with your God (if you are yet to) so that He can ignite in you d happiness you are seeking for. He is the best COMPASS to your destiny in this volatile and complex world.
      You are UNSTOPPABLE and I wish you all the very best.
      Much love.

Because they too didn’t raise a responsible son that raped a girl. If it was he’s sister that was raped how would he feel?

    A saga that nightmares are made of. I swear, the horrible vibes these posts have been giving me….it’s like a terrible train-wreck…it terrifying but you can’t look away.

    All of this reminds me of a young lady who was an intern (IT) while I served. At first the gist was that she was highly promiscuous, then they said she was possessed and was sleeping around to pass mammywater spirit into guys (imagine this kind of dirty gist at a proper workplace)…then a friend/colleague saw her walking around festac one day, spaced out and all, she asked around and it turned out this girl had some sort of mental illness. I felt really bad for her! she was sick and guys were taking mad advantage of her!
    The most disgusting was when this ‘Hausa’ corper took her to his place in Dolphin Estate after work on a Friday so he and his friends could run a train on her. It turned out she was having a somewhat lucid day and said no. He allowed her go, but after making her give him head, in front of his friends. He had the audacity to tell the ‘disappointing’ episode to my friend! My friend used to relay most of the dudes perverted shenanigans back to me.

    I won’t lie, I was prejudiced against northern men for a loooooong time after that! But I never let such things stick cos we all know evil and perversion knows no tribe or race.

    This story seems like it would be pivotal to how our generation will treat rape and rape (not sex- you can’t have sex with a minor) of minors as a crime. Let’s keep watching the drama unfold.

      I shared a story of a young lady I once met who has mental issues. She was taken advantage of by guys. She was raped by an older guy at the workplace.

      I would go into asking how it is that you couldn’t connect the dots, but this post is not about me, you or my ability to shut rude little twats down….so bless your sweet little heart.
      Back on topic.
      Nigerians need to discuss mental illnesses, and how affected young girls are even more vulnerable to sexual assault or even possible grey areas such as this one is turning out to be.

      I’d advice guys to stay away from young girls. And even with a girl that’s of age, make sure to establish a strong relationship and consent. There are so many grey areas, the black and white situations I’d teach the young boys in my life to stay away from are: 1. Underaged sex, 2. Group sex of any kind, 3. Alcohol in her system, and 4. If she says no at any point, no amount of yes a minute later should make you go ahead.
      Just teach the boys (and girls) to be responsible sexually, it’ll hopefully make for a better generation.

    There is no way those selective released emails will convince me.
    Unfortunately, we might not get the silver bullet we desire. This should be a lesson to rape victims, always collect evidence as soon as you can. Go see a doctor immediately. All this she said, he said is no good to the trauma of abuse.

I will not lie, l am traumatised. I had a very bad night yesterday and I just get madly angry as l read the crap this shameless man just spewed. You are right, he did not deny specifics. The girl was very detailed. I mean she’s had/ has her whole life in shreds at the moment – all for what? Fame? Nonsense. I believe @Sugabelly till tomorrow.

    I always know when someone is lying when they start talking off point. You are facing a specific accusation. “You forced me to have sex with your friends and virgin brother” and you’re talking about how because you played football with obiezekwesili’s kids you cannot be a rapist. Rapists no dey touch ball?
    He’s lying about how old she was when they had sex but according to the emails you released you had sex before her 18th birthday. YOU released those emails, so what? We’re not supposed to trust the emails YOU released to exonerate yourself? So this girl planned since 2007 to write a blog and paint you as a rapist for fame? This girl hasn’t changed Her story in 9 years.
    You’re a politician, you’ll fool the average nigerian. You will never fool me.
    I’m looking forward to you suing. Have your day in court.

    P.s – I like how you neglected to mention that you sent her friend a cease and desist 10 months ago when he shared this rape story anonymously on Twitter. It’s funny how the victim’s name was never mentioned in the story but somehow you knew it was her.

I have to say I hadn’t even heard of sugabelly prior to this but what she’s saying is the truth. I’ve had a read of her blog as well. Her story has been consistent. As we know there is only one version of the truth, she might have been molested prior to meeting him which made her an easier target but did this mustafa guy do all he’s accused of? The answer is an undisputed YES! He’s now scrambling to discredit her.

      You should read up what makes a person a ‘minor’. The law is to protect the vulnerable; which is what you are when you are 17, and in love, despite your jamb scores. Not everybody at that age has the ability to recognize the difference between an abusive relationship and a romantic one. Heck, women in their 30s and 40s are still married to their abusers! It’s really complex. Media doesn’t help either. Parents need to step up to fill their God given roles. The family SHOULD be the first agent of socialization. This story just unveiled the lapses in our culture and value system.

    Are there evidences that you had sex with a girl of 17years? I think that’s all you should answer. Every other story you are running round has nothing to do with this. A million and one children are orphans. Stop distracting the core of the story. RAPIST!

    Hmmmmm. Sugarbelly is a serial rape victim I think. If she was raped by her irresponsible mum boyfriend who allows her stay out till 12midnight at 17. She also knew too much already about sex and relationships at that age. Her Mum is totally to blame for this she missed it. Damn! She was not a mum figure at all. The story don tire person sef

      Just because a parent didn’t do a stellar job, IN YOUR OPINION, doesn’t mean that Sugabelly should be a victim of rape. Because she has an absentee father and a not so vigilant mother means absolutely nothing, Rapists are sick individuals and will rape anyone without respect to age, religion, creed, or PARENTAL involvement. People really should stop attacking her parents. A terrible thing has possibly happened, but please let’s focus the blame on the rapist and no one else.

      My mother did not have a boyfriend while i was a child, and I was never raped by anyone but Mustapha, his brothers, his friends, and his cousins.

      Mustapha told innumerable disgusting and vicious lies in this pathetic excuse for an interview, most of which I have ignored / unlooked, but I find this to be the most disgusting lie of them all.

      hi sugabelly, just a genuine question out of curiosity. If you were not raped before mustapha can you please explain the reference to the bed. Something obviously happened on a bad and you made reference to telling him later. Im a bit confused about that. Please elaborate if you dont mind

Anything you say now will dilute your story and this is not just for you. Remember, there are a million other women who are going through your ordeal and this fight needs to be fought for them too. Stop replying people on social media. You’re wasting your time, ok

    Audu you’re a joker! Seriously you have time to mention names of books when you should be giving detailed account of your relationship with her? It’s a pity you lost your mum but dude you sound guilty!!!! Since 2007 she’s been crying blood if I were you I’d have asked for her forgiveness, you and your cohorts. Most times victims need closure. Coming to terms with their ordeal. Since she boldly mentioned your names and gave detailed accounts ( she no mention which book una read but you na only book you remember….Mumu)

    I’m a mother of three girls this story has got me to look…I mean look at my girls. Father Lord, please give me the wisdom to raise them right also praying for mothers with sons to look as I look too and raise them well . Into your hands Lord I commend our children

    Granting this interview was an error, you said absolutely nothing. Look Mr. Man, take this case and go to court if you feel you were wrongful accused. No need to patronize her by saying “I want to protect her” (Boy, if you don’t get…). You can bring out ALL the evidence you want in the court of law (we, the public don’t need to see it).

    You never for once addressed the specific allegations. Listen! did you or your friends rape her or not? “How can I do that? look at me, I’m a child of God” is not an acceptable answer. Yes or No. If not, ngwanu carry your briefcase and lets go to court.

    Meanwhile i have been following Lotanna on social media for years!. She is definitely a very troubled young lady, whom I wish all the peace in the world, but her story regarding this has been consistent. Your emails mean nothing. She already said she was in love with you, and if you add LOVE + LOW SELF ESTEEM, I’m sure you’re educated enough to know thats the mathematics for abuse & manipulation. Please bring other forms of evidence when you’re coming to court, lest you end up looking like boo-boo the fool.

    You’re still innocent of RAPE until proven guilty in my opinion. Yes, I can empathize with Lotanna without vilifying her alleged perpetrators. HOWEVER, you are guilty of senselessness, and we will not accept your attacks on her freedom of sexuality, her mental vulnerability, or her so called “desperation for marriage” or fame. She was 17, and you should be ashamed of yourself.

    This story don tire me sef. Abeg go to court already and slug it out there!

    It’s interesting how he refutes the claim of being a rapist. Then again, I’m yet to see a nigerian guy own up to rape. Rape being the operative word. It’s how song writers like the one that wrote ‘Story for the gods’ get off lightly. I remember once I accosted a guy when he was treating a young girl inappropriately, on the street. He managed to turn the tale around so adeptly that he became the victim, and I the oppressor.

    Maybe we need to start holding seminars to educate men on what is, and what isn’t sexually appropriate behaviour.

      “Maybe we need to start holding seminars to educate men on what is, and what isn’t sexually appropriate behaviour.”

      *Sigh* can you people stop copying rubbish Western solutions that don’t work.

      A. Nobody will volunteer to attend your seminars.

      B. It’ll irritate men who don’t ever have the intention of raping or hell even behaving inappropriately. P.S Google videos of Women with Pop Stars or drunk women in general to see “sexually inappropriate behaviour”.

      C. Yup more seminars, because countless hours of preaching against lying, fornication and sin in general works so well. /s

      Actual solutions

      1. Teach women what a can of Mace can do.

      2. Self Defence is not overrated or “ungirly”,

      3. Move with a group, try not to put yourself in dangerous situations.

      4. Report immediately after a crime FFS.

      But you have to admit that as much as awareness, defence training, the works, are important for women, we also need something for the guys. Maybe not seminars, but a systemic education cutting across several channels on the need to understand “no means no”. Because as I mentioned in my earlier comment, a good number of nigerian men just don’t get it.

    This guy is as guilty as guilty can be! Look at these arrays of inconsistencies in his response and the air of superiority in his comments! It is sad that this case is being peddled in Africa because the outcome would have been devastating for this man! As a psychologist reviewing all these evidences and behavioral patterns, it is crystal clear what transpired between these two and the bottom line is that the girl in question was actually exploited emotionally and otherwise judging from the underlying circumstances of family disunity in which she was raised. It is only common for girls with that background to cling on their supposed significant other irrespective of the treatment she is being exposed to! I weep for Africa and the Money bag Syndrome!

    Musti!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this SOB is a sadistic piece of worthless life. in school he was a bully with a mean streak. this guy and some of his friends put my cousins through hell, back and forth. He came up with sadistic ways to torture junior students.. This same guy made a junior student digest his own feces , when the kid got sick his parents tried to get payback, but Musti was protected by his pops and family name. He raped other girls too. I wish they will all come out and make this girl’s case concrete granite solid. we already believe sugabelly but i swear other babes coming out will prove that his worthless idiot is a liar and a rapist. All those northern guys are creeps, they all want the freakaziod girlfriends and then turn around and marry a “virgin” with no body count.

      It’s like they have this conquest/plundering mentality when it comes to southern girls. Almost as if they are indoctrinated to see them as spoils and sex slaves. The tribalist and racist angle abi na manifest destiny mentality here are hard to miss.

      It doesn’t absolve Igbo or Yoruba guys in anyway because they can be worse but Northern guys have more sinister motives.

The problem is northern men using southern girls to fulfill their fantasies openly while they take hide northern girls’ signs so they still have a chance to marry. Most northern girls i know lost their virginity or took it backside from a younger age… so pls don’t even lie here…

It’s so sad to think of what vulnerable young women go through with monsters like this man. But I thank God that if nothing else, Sugabelly’s story has opened some eyes and made some parents wake up. We need to start changing the way we think and protecting the young and vulnerable from these sadistic sociopaths.

    I think I blame the interviewer for some of these answers. It would have been good to dwell on a few specific issues? For example., a letter was sent on behalf Mustapha Audu/his friends by lawyers at Afe Babalola & Co on January 27 2015 to the lady who first leaked the convo with their names on twitter. That letter asked that they pay $2million dollars compensation or would be sued for libel immediately. The question is why did they not sue? Why are the other accused silent? If you accuse me of rape & I did not do it & know you have been accusing me for a while & I send lawyers threatening to sue, I will sue to clear my name.

    (I refuse to address you by name)

    You are doing it all over again, violating her all over again. You probably thought no one would care about what was done to her because if you did, you would not have subjected her to what you did.

    You know the truth. Until I can believe your story, I need you to answer the following questions:

    – Did you ‘share’ @sugarbelly with you friends?
    – Did you ask, not tell her to sleep with your younger brother?
    – Did you pass her round in the pool at the Marriott?
    – Did you have sex with her at any point after she had said no?
    – Was she of age the first time you slept with her?
    – Did you feed her drugs?
    – Did you manipulate her?
    – And finally can you answer amen to the following prayer? – May all your female children and all their female cousins have the same kind of relationship you had with @sugarbelly at 17, nothing added, nothing subtracted.

    November 28, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    So I had a group of friends in school who gang raped a girl (but they wouldn’t agree it was gangrape). One of them had a party and then for the pre-party, he cooked for some of his friends and put weed in the food. Once everyone was high, he slept with the girl and had his friends take turns while he took a long walk, when he returned, he finds her crying and refusing to allow one of then sleep with her. He pets her and then he takes her hostel promising that friend who didn’t have his turn that he will organize something for him.

    Weeks later, he sees the girl again and takes her out then his friends tell her the right words, keep her late until she has to sleep in his room then that friend he promised had his turn. When they hosted me you should have seen me screaming and threatening to call the police on them. Their excuse was ‘if she isn’t a hoe, why did she hang out with us a second time’ my weak response was ‘she was hoping to redeem her image and feel some dignity about the situation’.

    I stayed with my cousins and their friends one evening and I did not sleep. They were proudly gisting of their exploits. One of them asked him to drop off a babe or should I say loot. He felt his friend could not chop while he acts like a driver so he lured her to a friends place and had them keep guard. His payment to them was that they will have their turn. They took their turns with her abs one of them says she cried, pleading and asking them not to imagine she was their daughter and one of them responded saying ‘if my daughter is stupid let it happen to her’ I pity that unborn girl coz her father has spoken gang rape into her life.

    Teen years are fraught with confusion. I came from a very loving home yet in 1st year at the age of 16, I liked a boy and begged him to disvirgin me, he spent so much time with me taking me out and spoiling me yet he didn’t touch me. At the end of the school year, he took his time to talk to me, telling me I was. Beautiful but he couldn’t take advantage of me. He spent time with me to prevent me falling into the hands of preys. He graduated and he was always a phone call away. Being a lecturer’s child he would always come back to school and spend time with me. The year I graduated, he told me he was scared I’d fall to the wrong hands but he was proud of the woman I became. I left school with a clean reputation, my story would have been different if he was an idiot. He would have passed me on to his friends and taken advantage of my confusion and people’s response would have been ‘what kind of girl begs a guy to disvirgin her, she deserves it’ but no one heard this gist and this boy was popular, a governor’s nephew. I saw him last week and we had a wonderful conversation, he’s married with a daughter and anytime in her life she’s abt to make a mistake,God will bring someone her way to protect her.

    We can stop this madness by raising our daughters with self respect and raising our sons to be princes taking pride in treating women like Queens.

    To pple who believe they can pass judgement, remember bad girls aren’t born, they are broken.

    Phew, that with long with TMI but I feel guilty everyday for not reporting the 1st two incidences I narrated above to the police.

      I don tire to blog in this matter but for the sake of my young daughter I can’t help replying you.
      May the heavens bless you for sharing these experiences on this blog today.
      May the earth, its elements and the heavens align to do good to that young man you described above. We need to hear reassuring tales that we men are not all depraved and women need to start speaking out against monsters with perverted motives in the guise of relationahips. We need to shout it from the rooftops. Non consensual sex is rape and a violation of every woman’s dignity. It can never be justified. I don’t care if the girl willingly participqt d in an orgy last week. If today she does not give a clear and irrefutable consent, you have no idea to share her around your friends ( even if they at is her idea of kinky fun).

      How do these sick animals even enjoy sexual acts that the partner is not a willful participant?
      This matter is beyond the parties trending in social media. We need to address a national epidemic. Rape and carrying forms of sexual abuse are rife on our campuses.
      A friend was telling about her niece in late teens whose boyfriend of same age (19) punishes her with anal sex when she disobeys him. She confided in the aunty to loving the boyfriend but feeling humiliated by the form of punishment.
      How are we raising these monsters?
      We need to redefine what our daughters see as love.

      our inspirational bloggers who are keen to motivate us with eggplant pics and booty pics, your loud silence is well noted.

And yes, you should feel bad for not reporting because guess what? They’ll do it again, just pray they never touch any of yours and I’m not talking about just these friends of yours now.
      Before getting calm enough to type this, I cursed those friends (adding that if it did happen). Why did he/they feel comfy enough to gist you about it sef? Please answer that, and what was your reaction? All na gist? I’m going back to bed cos I’m proper pissed.

    Let’s look at this with an open mind. While rape is utterly unforgivable, destroying someone’s life with false accusations is equally despicable. Could be anyone’s brother or husband equally accused.

    This is from Sugabelly’s blog titled “Seven Reasons I Had Sex”.

    Some excerpts from the blog post below. Seems she enjoyed some of the sexual encounters, of course this does not justify rape, if it indeed happened.

    It just sort of happened all at once. Once the stone got rolling, it was all downhill from there. An accidental picture on Facebook, then a quick detour to get shawarma turned into an afternoon spent splayed out Unclad on the fully reclined passenger seat of a red Mercedes, breathlessly steaming up the windows as my toes struggled not to accidentally turn off the AC or change the radio station.”

    August 25, 2014 at 3:39 am

    I’m still totally waiting to hear your reasons!

    As for being splayed out in the Mercedez, that ended up happening a lot with him. We had sex in his car almost every night. Maybe it was me being a teenager and not having a place to go for privacy, so I made him park his car down dark streets all over Abuja and turn the AC up which steamed up the windows while we had sex in the reclined seats.”

    • DD

      November 28, 2015 at 10:18 pm

      *sigh* She has never denied that she entered into a sexual relationship with him or that she had sex with him in his car. But she was a minor, 17 years old, and he was in his mid-twenties, and *he* should not have taken advantage of her youth and willingness. In addition,he forced her to have sex on multiple occasions, not only with him but with his brothers, friends and cousin, using physical, emotional and sexual abuse, along with threats of releasing videotapes, etc to coerce and silence her. The fact that she willingly had sex with him in his car when they first got together does not take *ANYTHING* away from her allegations of rape, statutory and otherwise.

    • Krasavitsa

      November 29, 2015 at 9:03 am

      @ Jaja, you know that someone with whom a girl has had consensual sex can also rape the same girl. Once she says “no”, it becomes rape. If said girl is below the age of 18 and even begs and cries for sex (with an adult of course) it’s called statutory rape. And she listed the reasons she had “SEX”. Rape is definitely not sex!

    • Surely

      November 30, 2015 at 6:46 am

      I don’t know if people like you are really just incapable of reasoning, and I struggle to believe that’s possible. But it is. There’s a reason Boko Haram, Isis, Donald Trump and you, exist in broad daylight.

      So because Sugabelly had consensual sex with him in the past, he couldn’t ever rape her? Do you stupid people think the vagina is a tool that used once, can be abused after? I’m sure marital rape is an oxymoron to you.

    I would have believed you mustapha if i didnt personally know someone you almost did the same to, but you weren’t successful. I believe this case should be left to the courts, but then again knowing the nigerian court system that caters to those who have more to spend and pad the judicial pockets we know she will not get justice. So Mr. audu you can tell your stories but if you feel you never did anything wrong by taking advantage of an under age girl then I feel sorry the women that you will raise.

    I really hope this mentality doesn’t become the reality for many. I’ve known great Hausa men- my dad, brothers, uncles and friends. Many of whom I grew up around.

    I feel sad when people translate this to an Hausa thing and apologise for some of our men giving reasons for people to believe Hausa men are sexual predators.

    I can only pray for healing for the victims and predators.

    The sugarbelly babe. Is amorous wild and obsessed with the guy. Shes was wild and enjoyed her fallacies. Shes been raped previously hence her reaction to the bed. Of visions of violent past rape. Go and sit down are just playing on peoples emotion. You had consensusl sex with him period. You were wild uncontrollable and amorous at 17.which one of you socalled defenders stay outside till 12am at 17. She and her mum were lax. She was rebellious. And wild. Babe looking for fame and ladder to step up. I do not support rape but alot of men has gone to jail innocently. Shes not want she potrayed herself to be. Victims of rape do not ho back to the rapist constantly. She enjoyed the wild sex and kept going back for more.

    And pls enof these arguments tht try to appeal to emotions…’she s a minor’ if she ws 18 wud ur stance hv been diffrnt or wud it hv absurb mustatpha of d crimes?

      November 29, 2015 at 11:10 am

      Use your brain, please. Just because a Mom wasn’t allegedly there for her daughter, doesn’t mean the daughter deserved to be raped, even worse, gang raped.
      I don’t know this girl and I usually keep quiet when it comes to situations like this, however it is clear she was raped. This dude is 8 years older than her and he took advantage of her vulnerability. Secondly, after reading the letter his lawyer sent to this girl’s friend in January, they claimed the guy and all his friends have/had nothing to do with her and had no relationship with her. Now he’s saying they dated briefly and the relationship ended cause she slept with his friend; can you see the conflicting information?
      A lot of girls have mentioned he’s either raped them, gang raped them, or they’ve had a near rape experience with the guy in question; I believe he’s a rapist or was. Unfortunately, rape victims worldwide because of their privacy and public scrutiny, they don’t come out, maybe until other victims start coming out. I mean, look at the Bill Cosby situation..
      The Abia University situation of 2011; even with a video, the guys still walked away free. If this guy is unable to face the law, I’m at least satisfied he has this public embarrassment to tarnish his image, alongside his friends and brothers.

      So going by your logic…considering d number of nigeria girls with aboslutely no morals these days…they run after married men who are old enof to be their dads…and many start as early as 18…should i conclude that all nigerian women are prostitutes (including you)????

    All I can say on this whole issue is that sugar belly seems mentally unstable,has she been diagnosed with any mental illness? And mental illness doesn’t mean one is mad as most Nigerians categorise it. This is not me being rude or insultive, but I believe she’s mentality challenged in a way. Seems like smone dats been crying out for help since her youth. I believe she was raped, I also believe she’s a damaged person who needs help and loads of therapy. This isn’t just abt crucifying mustapha alone. But this girl needs helpppp. I believe she also has low self esteem and was lookn for love in all d wrong places. Is dis girl on suicide watch anyone. I’m more concerned about this girls state of mind and fixing it, than weda mustapha raped her or not. The fact is dat smone raped this girl, and more than raped her. People and perhaps her life experiences have damaged her. This is still going to play out on future relationships/marriage she has. That’s my contribution. To say the truth, I have also been raped before, but maybe because I’m a strong person with high self worth, it’s an experience I don’t even think about, it’s carved backkk in my mind. Maybe because immediately it happened, I told adults. Both families got involved, with d parents of d guy constantly begging me and d guy also. I remember it, but it hasn’t affected me. I didn’t want d police involved, but I guess I kinda had therapy cos I spoke to ppl about it, a councilor at church etc. Has sugar belly had therapy for all what she’s been thru, dats my question???

      “You’re a strong person with high worth”. Maybe maybe not. Lets look at a few things: You reported immediately, you were not castigated or blamed since your family took action and the boys family apologized. By apologizing, they accept blame /take responsibility. The boy in question also apologized. This means you got closure. This has made it easier for you to forget more like repress what happened in the deepest part of your memory because in some small (or big) ways,you got justice.

He is dead now and I pray that favour and wealth grow wings and leave your family. You people have only used all to do evil to the helpless. May you Mustapha eat grass for the rest of your life. Not just because of this lady but also to all others that you and your family did evil to. The day of reckoning has come and your beloved daddy is not here to “take care” of things. You must reap what you sow. I don’t believe your story one tiny bit. He looks like a monster, he sounds like a monster what else can he be if not a monster?

    This mustapha guy just worsened his own story! Why did he evade the question? He tried to play the Pity card and it obviously didn’t work. When I was younger, my uncle almost raped me, like he literally was on top of me, my mum walked in and started Beating him, took him to the police and had him locked up for weeks, however, no one in her family believed me and said I was trying to tarnish his image. That happened 12 years ago and till today I have no association with my mother’s family. How could they accuse me of trying to frame him??!? Oh well my point here is, sugabelly’s case will make or break the rape situation in Nigeria, if she’s telling the truth then it’ll serve as a good example of why we shouldn’t look down on rape victims or accuse them, However, if she’s lying, that’ll be very very sad, everyone will now assume the guy is the victim and is wrongly accused ! I know this isn’t my business, , but I’ve prayed about it! Left it to God

See I had mad crush on someone 10years my senior when I was 17, he was Northern, rich, from an influential family and we were close. He vowed never to touch me and because he knows I’m naive. I can remember. He gave me everything I asked for without asking for anything in return. Even what I didn’t ask for, he gave! I was his baby and he did it so I won’t fall into another wicked man’s arms. When he told me he was getting married, I prayed for him. When I saw his wedding pictures, I prayed for him and his wife again. That’s how it’s done!!!!!! Musta-whatever you are called, you are just sad and an embarrassment!!!!

    Just last month, my 8 year old cousin was raped by a 59 year old man who runs a school on a lease in my aunt’s compound.

    It was during his second time with her, that my aunt caught them.
    We found out that he had told my little cousin after sleeping with her the first time, that if she ever told anyone, she would die. My aunt was so devastated, she had lost her virginity after getting gang raped when she was a teenager. You can imagine how bad she must have felt to have seen the repetition of an ugly past happen to her own daughter…

    Just wanted to put this out there in response to the questions around why she kept going back. This is actually a common trait among rape victims. Find below an excerpt from an article published the the Pennsylvania coalition against rape:

    Many victims continue to have a relationship with their abuser.

    Though it may be difficult for the public to understand, it is common for survivors of sexual abuse to continue relationships with their abusers after the abuse has stopped. Individuals react to trauma in different ways. For example, it is common for victims to maintain contact with their abusers because they may still feel affection for them even though they hate the abuse. This is especially normal when the abuser is a member of the family or a close family friend. It is also common for some victims to maintain contact in an attempt to regain control over their assault. Others may maintain contact in an attempt to regain a feeling of normalcy.

    Additionally, offenders often intentionally build a connection or a bond that isn’t broken as a result of sexual abuse. The abuse is often one element of an otherwise loving or fun relationship. Offenders may intentionally maintain the non-abusive parts of the relationship to keep victims feeling close to them and thus less likely to report the prior abuse.

    So he has three daughters. Rapists don’t realise that they are putting their daughters in harms way. This is not a curse but the unfortunate reality of some people’s situation. If he truly committed all these atrocities and karma decides to be a ‘female dog’, his daughters wouldn’t find it easy. Some women have had to go do deliverance from being constantly targeted from sexual molestation and they discovered someone in their ancestry was a serial rapist and they are now suffering for the atrocities.

    Mr. Musti, if you truly did these, seek forgiveness from all your victims especially Lotanna and go do time. Don’t destroy the lives of your three innocent daughters.

    I read Sugarbelly’s blog and I was so distraught. This girl has been totally damaged from the abuse. She was intensely obsessed with Musti and she had been raped consistently by someone in her house who would raise her young thighs and give her a head even at such young age. Her mum also contributed to her trauma, what kind of mother puts pressure on her daughter in JSS to be skinny. Her mother’s pressure made her bulimic, and shedefinitely had esteem issues. I really wish I could reach out to her, scientific medication and therapy is not the answer. Sugarbelly needs spiritual medication and therapy to free her from her PTSD, and suicidal tendencies.

    My thoughts are with you Lotanna. I really wish I could contact you and help you spiritually.

      She mentioned here that she was consistently molested by one Mr Turner in a BQ in Maitama. From all indications on her blog, Mustapha is the infamous Bakura. So is Mr Turner the same person as Mustapha? Everything is out there on her blog so I don’t understand her earlier comment that she was never molested by any other person. Inconsistent stories will cast doubt on the credibility of her claim, take one story and stick to it Sugabelly.

    What a turn of events these past few days have been. I refuse to accept that anyone is guilty until it is proven. However, the reputation, image and history of this family does not help their case. What with the following:

    1. EFCC arrests for scamming,
    2. stories of the negative treatment of women in Abuja,
    3. inhumane treatment to people in high school
    4. My personal encounter and perception of 1 of the mentioned brothers
    5. Stories of his eldest brother’s (the one presented for Kogi governorshp candidate) mean/wicked treatment of his staff at their Mediterranean Hotel in Abuja

    These sure do not help the picture trying to be painted above of a calm and innocent person. I guess people do change once they get married but the past is coming to hunt these guys.

    Except when caught in the act, callegations of crime are usually one person’s word against the other. So you use deduction reasoning, facts and evidence to determine wodunnit.
    In this case, One account offers chronological accounts of the events, it names names, dates, places and publishes conversations. The other offers a whitewash, and seems like a concious attempt to distract us from the allegations…. I think it’s safe to draw conclusions except/until further evidence is presented

    I hope I don’t sound insensitive but here we go.
    Please lawyers in here what is the age of consent in Nigeria cos I know Sen Yerima has married younger than sugabelly’s age if 17. At least I know that it is 18 in the US, 15 in France, 16 in Canada except they’ve changed in the last year but Nigeria has not really stated hers.
    That aside…I dnt believe that the victim should be blamed or her mother blamed (as is becoming the norm in the comments section) and I think there’s a lot of truth (not the whole thing) in sugabelly’s story and here’s why:
    1. She’s very detailed and has been consistent in her story.
    2. This Mustapha guy was dodging all the questions. .what does football with Oby’s sons gat to do with the issue on ground.
    3. From the BN comments, more than a few people have had or know people that had had similar encounters with the accused.
    4. She called out more than a few people and no word from their camps plus you Mr Mustapha threatened a $2m suit long ago and the time is long due.

    But also I’ve seen a lot of hate towards Mustapha’s three daughters and prayers of rape for them….dats just outright wrong because nobody deserves to be raped irrespective the deeds or sins of their fathers. Also some IDIOTS saying she was raped because she’s loose or she was a slut; raping a prostitute is still rape, killing a murderer is still murder and stealing from a thief is still theft.
    Y’all have a great day ahead

    How many young girls were disvirgined without their consent?

    Many men now husbands raped a girl in their youth. Because if you played around with a young girl at some point n got her disvirgined, you are a RAPIST!!

    I got raped by the first person because I was young and didn’t know what until it happened. Looking back now I didn’t give concent at all.

    I feel for girl in our society.

    I believe her story 100%

    In my opinion this entire interview was crap. From the obviously bias interviewer (who has zero interviewing skills by the way) to Mustapha Audu. If i even for a fleeting moment doubted he may be guilty, this interviewed just confirmed everything he did. So you are being asked about the allegations and then you go turn on “Self aggrandizement”as a cover, beyond that, you talk about books you’ve read (let’s not even go into that psychology now), and how you’re trying to protect her but harp on about how her mum’s boyfriend raped er in the past. This confirms all Lotanna said about your threats of blackmail. We see what you did here Mustapha Audu. You may be able to get away with the Justice system here in Nigeria but i guarantee you, you will pay for everything you did. a thousand times over. Lotanna was damaged, it is not your place to tell the world about her molestation as a child, only tell the bits you are involved in. Proving the kind of monster you really are. May you find your hell here and beyond.

    Rape is so damaging. It’s a shame that one you have been accused of rape you are guilty in the court of public opinion even without proof. Ladies are to emotional to think rationally when they hear rape. Bear in mind her chats don’t corroborate her story of rape, so how is he all of a sudden guilty. We all know cases of false allegations so why can’t this be one of em. Let’s not be too quick to judge if we dnt have proof. Plus the timing of this is so suspect. Sugar belly why now. You packaged your story so well to gain the most traction that you could get. Something smells fishy abeg

      Maybe you should familiarize yourself with this story before you start commenting on it. The timing is not suspect at all. She has been talking about this for years. It’s only big news now because her reaction to Mustapha’s father’s passing caught people’s attention. He is not guilty all of a sudden, if you read the emails and Facebook chat he released himself, look at the dates on them and ask yourself again if they are not consistent with the victims account of their relationship.

      P.s. Ladies are not too emotional to think rationally on any issue. On this comment section alone both men and women alike are disgusted and appalled by the rape and abuse allegations and Mustapha’s weak and incoherent rebuttal.

    Sometimes i really wonder why everyone especially ladies think stories can not be made up to get at some one. I am not denying the fact that rape situations exist but i am of the opinion that sometimes it can be used to get at a person or for defamation purposes.

    Recently, say about two weeks ago a lady also accused me of rape and took to bbm broadcast to defame me telling everyone that i raped her. I don want to go into details.

    She was ignorant of the fact that i was smart also. All the conversation we had and time out was recorded and i had smart video camera shooting everything without her knwledge.
    i did all that for security reasons. i had her pictures and everything.

    After that day she started calling me a rapist bcs i didnt gv her what she wanted.
    It was after i saw the broadcast on bbm i sent her the pictures and told her i have the video of all that transpired.

    She started calling me to make amends … The defamation was such that everybody on bbm started sending me request to find out and even accusing me.

    She pleaded and settled with me on fone the saturday she called.
    She had to send another broadcast telling everyone that it was amistake and a rumour that the said bbm pin never commited that act.

    So ppl especially ladies, find out b4 you accuse ppl …

    Whoww! since i have started following this story i think i should call my very first boyfriend for not taking advantage of me . There are good men out there and my story proves it .
    Olumide got employed to my secondary school as a fresh graduate . I was in love and obsessed with him and he doesn’t even teach my department . Somehow he returned the love and we started dating. I’m 16, he’s 26 then . My dad is late and my mum is always busy looking for a way to raise i and my elder sis. I’m an introvert so no friends . Olumide was my all. we couldn’t hide our love, my church , neighbors told my mum and she came to report him in school. They sacked him and that made me love him more . I don’t know if this is another form of abuse but Olumide never called me his girlfriend to anyone and that’s why we broke up when i was of age then 21 . Like hes always denying me and its really painful.
    Anyways ,We always try to have sex but i wasn’t ready , and its painful too . Even tho i see the pain and disappointment on his face , he always stop whenever i tell him to stop .
    Now the purpose of this story is for those blaming sugarbelly mum . My mum loves me , but she cant stay at home , shes not always there for me . She does every work just to make sure we feed and go to school . Nobody was there for me and Olumide knows all of these , he could have as well forced me to have sex in their big house. Yea , hes a big Boy. He graduated from a private uni, he has a car, His mum is rich and hes the only son and he stays in their house alone. And me , we stay in a room , face me i slap you . so you can imagine . If this guy was Mona, he would have brainwashed me, taken advantage of me , or even rape me in their house and nobody will know or even believe me cos people know we were dating .
    We dated on and off for like 5 years , and he has never forced himself on me . He has always stopped at the tip and that’s okay for us .
    Now am 26, married and my husband is 11 years older than me but i am ready , like i’m matured and i know what i want.
    For those saying sugarbelly enjoyed the sex, shes a minor and the truth is she doesn’t know what shes doing . If olumide has raped me then , i might go back back for more cos common the guy got sacked cos of me but he didn’t , and that’s a Man right there .
    So Mustapha , I’m gonna judge you, you are a RAPIST and you deserve to be castrated, and nop your father will not rise up from the dead to save you.

    And they will doing a very poor job of it. Exposing themselves the more.
    He claims it was consensual, he is not denying it happened. Consensual rape? Hmmmm.
    I guess it is karma visiting him.

Point is, he’s insincere and very dishonest, absolutely callous and took advantage of a young, vulnerable girl who was hopelessly in love with him.

    I don’t believe sugabelly. Why is she coming out now after so long. I think she is an attention seeker. Period.
    She has probably been suffering from depression because the guy has moved on and she is not married yet. Question is if she was married at this time, will she come out and accuse him? How could she have been left to be prostituting on the streets of Abuja in cars at such an early age. She sounds delusional to me, I am sorry to say. She needs to get over the fact that they once dated and he didn’t like her as much as she did him. I know how that can be, liking someone and the person doesn’t like you in return.
    So my advice is that sugabelly should get some counselling, have deliverance and get a boyfriend and move on!!!

You see, in life all it takes is one person to come out, and others start to tell their own story. By the way, do you think this is something that someone will like to come out and discuss? Not to mention the stigma attached to it. Especially in a country where people are hopelessly judgmental with matters pertaining rape. And just saw you know, she’s been talking about this on her blog for MANY YEARS; it’s just now she’s being heard. The fact that you don’t believe her doesn’t mean her story is untrue, so cheers to you.

    “Age of Consent for Sexual Activity


    On May 1st, 2008 the age of consent to sexual activity changed in Canada. The new law has raised the legal age of consent from 14 years of age to 16 years of age1. ”


    The Age of Consent in Nigeria is 11 years old. The age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity. Individuals aged 10 or younger in Nigeria are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape or the equivalent local law.

    Based on the above facts, the charge of statutory rape will be hard to sustain in our using our statutes. For crying out loud, the likes of Sani Yerima and Sanusi are formally making ‘ rape ‘ right in our eyes with the collusion of the parents of the kids being given out for marriage. In one case, we hear it is to further the friendships and the ties of the kingdoms. In the other, there is a religious right argument to it.

    That said, I find the idea that the Sugarbelly was already working curious. She was already an established staff of an IT firm in Abuja. I mean in that sense she was already entering into employment contract of some sort and writing legal papers on behalf of the company. This raises the question of her level of her naivety. Was she that naive? I mean if you could write business letters for the company in pursuit of pecuniary deals, how minor is minor?

    Having made my points. I think what might be at issue possibly is that a spoilt brat, newly arrived from overseas, of a rich and powerful politician held so much allure to Sugarbelly. She wanted him and he in return wanted her as a fling to use, share and dispose. Unfortunately, Sugarbelly was not emotionally mature enough to make sense of what was consuming her. And there was no sisterly and motherly support system to enable her make sense of the whole situation.

    She got involved in a situation where Audu’s son satisfied his sexual fantasies with a brilliant lady and artist who was willing to indulge someone she thought loved her. Instead he treated her innocence and youthfulness, not with good faith, but with contempt. It is typical of what Lebanese guys were doing in Australia to white girls because they thought they were too wayward and could not understand the quality of openness in western civilization.

    Sugarbelly was good enough for his fantasies, but not good enough for marriage neither was she good enough to be respected as a lady. It could be the cultural and religious gap between the two individuals that was source of ‘friction. ‘ While books provided some sort of commonality, their ethnicity and cultural orientation did not. And aslo while their western aspirational lifestyle provided some mutuality, their individual religious orientation did not.

    I guess this made it easy for the guy to mind fuck her because their beliefs were different and how she understood things was different and this was complicated more because she was young and very vulnerable. She needs to heal wholly in a way that she can see herself as worthy and deserving of a good man. I hope she is over the guy.

    Nevertheless, I think the guy is a monster and he is typical of some males being raised by many rich and privileged families and this fellow needs a lot of help and therapy to understand his weird motivations and monstrosities. And equally Sugarbelly needs help to retrace her steps back to some of the motivations behind the relationships she seemed to have willingly condoned, the abuse she endured , and eventually look for ways she can fully heal from her past.

    As Nigerians, we all culpable in this mess. handed down. Our laws need to be changed and how we negotiate between ancient and modern times in our moral judgements of people and actions . The way we have been socialized does not seems to align with the demands of modern life . There is that tendency that some are not empowered and we sometimes devalue ourselves because of our desire for social mobility.

Obviously she liked the guy, and she came on to him and she kept on coming for him for more….people are using her state of mind or psychological state to infer she was been used…sorry, but this girl definitely knew what she was doing. If she was really raped, why didnt she go to the police or why has she not gone to police now to make a case…..the fact is the guy does not deny having sex with her and the lady cannot deny not going back for more, Forget about all those abuser victim thoery

    Sugabelly obviously has deep-seated daddy issues. This Audu cat found out and exploited it to the fullest. he enjoyed that he was her master and he could make her do whatever he pleased, even have her have sex with his friends and little brothers. Usually, pimps use some sort of dependency, mainly drugs to get their girls to trick but in this case, Audu knew that the girl would do anything to please him and get his approval. The girl on the other hand had gone through an episode that messed her up so bad she probably thought it was alright to be abused in such manner. Pretty sure sadomasochist books and porn would have been highly consumed.
    Sugabelly, it’s not your fault though. Your parents failed you big time especially your mum. I read your curfew was 12 midnight, Really?! in Nigeria!. I hope naming and shaming these people has given you some sort of relief and you should now focus on healing and your craft.

    I am really happy that Nigerians are standing up for rape victims. However, I cannot understand why people keep castigating the mum this is so irrelevant to the issue at hand. I guess I was really lucky cos at 16 I remember meeting the son of one of the ex presidents of the country and taken to Aso Rock. He was about 10 years older than myself but he was super cute and so much fun to be around. I remember going there with my friends and his friends. Long story short he tried to come onto me and as soon as I said NO and I remember him asking if I was sure and I said yes and that was the end of that. Looking back now I see the stupidity of my actions but at the time it seemed like fun. So please a 17 year old is still not mature enough and hence should be seen as a minor. So can all these over grown men just leave little girls alone. The bottom line is he could have raped me that faithful night and I probably be in sugarbelly shoes. There are decent guys out there and it doesn’t matter if you are rich or not. If you are a monster then you should be punished for it. #speakagainstrape #aminorisaminor

She got an imaginative brain all right and the dude confirmed shes a brilliant babe. Look at the facts, this girl has all to gain by this, her blog==(more traffic), her name—(popular), her upcoming book(more sales). Even if this really happened, when she got away to the US, why did she still keep in touch with this guy you claim did horrible things to you, i read some messages she sent him while in the US. When anyone reads her story, the will feel rage for the guy but please ppl, we are taking this femininity and womens rights too far and they feel they can do or say anything to implicate the men and society will believe them, thats just the way it is.

Trying to sound like he was protecting her but then putting out the emails confirms her fears that he would blackmail her. Unfortunately Sugabelly is a dramatic writer and so everything she writes and tweets always seems sensational. It doesn’t make them untrue. No one in their right mind would make up rape by a rich powerful man in Nigeria, knowing how judgemental Nigerians are and the irreparable damage to her reputation it will cause.

    And most importantly, there is absolutely nothing a person can show to prove rape in Nigeria without people blaming the victim. Even if she releases a video, people will still ask why she was there or wearing what she was wearing. Until we learn to listen to victim, we will never reduce this rape culture. I bet you if that Mama Cass son had raped someone in Nigeria and she cried out they will call her a slut and nothing would have happened to him. Such a pity.
