      All the kidnap apologists on this thread need to realise that if he took her to his house without her consent he has already ADMITTED to kidnapping. There is no evidence of attempted rape but HE TOOK HER TO HIS HOUSE AGAINST HER WILL ! To what purpose of not kidnapping?
      He couldn’t pull her out of the car in the road or take her to the police station?
      Everybody here defending this man should remember that it could be their sister mother or daughter tomorrow.

    This is great! I have been so disturbed at the trauma caused to this poor guy. It’s not fair to treat people poorly. The video gave more than the lady expected and honestly I never knew her before now but don’t think I’ll like to watch a movie with her in it. Please don’t judge me. This is my opinion and you are entitled to yours.

    Only in Nigeria will this crap happen. In your earlier statement you stated you took her to the estate gate and reported to the estate securities, why then did you decide that taking her to your house was the right thing to do. That singular action in a court of law is intent cos you drove her to where she wasn’t going without her consent and that in a civilized court of law is kidnapping I don’t know about Naija. Make sure that you get a very good counsel before running to court and don’t be blinded my monetary gains. You put out a statement on social media and now this letter from your lawyer, no more social media statements cos already I can see inconsistencies that any smart lawyer can use to tear down your claims. Good luck

      All these ‘only in nigeria’ people, puhlsssss. Every country is a sh*thole country, you don’t hear about it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

      You don’t upload a person’s pic with the label ‘kidnapper and rapist’ and not expect a reaction. Those are two strong words. Was there really an attempt to rape or kidnap? You can go online and talk about poor customer service, driver being uncivilized and being manhandled but not an attempted kidnap or rape. Those are heavy

      Thank you o.

      I have been asking why didn’t he just drive her back to where he picked her from when she refused to disclose her destination? In fact at the point when she refused to disclose her destination, he should not have moved any further and insisted on her destination before moving. Also, he could have called the police to report this matter when she refused to come down and/or drive her to the nearest police station, instead of his house. He may not be a rapist or a kidnapper but he definitely erred in judgement when he drove her to his house and then put his hands on her in his attempt to forcibly pull her down from his car -that is kidnapping/false imprisonment and assault. At that point, she had every right to defend herself. I hope this really does go to court – it should be interesting – but I think they will end up settling out of court.

    in as much as I don’t condone what both sides are doing, I think 5million is too small for the amount of damage DSF allegedly did to his Career,guy should have made it 50million.i was not there but from the videos I don’t think he wanted he to rape or kidnap her,maybe he manhandled her,yeah I think so. DSF next time calm down before making such allegations, think about your story and all, I am not saying you are not saying the truth, but I dont think social media should be your first cry out. go to the police first, trust me you would have gotten response from everybody, by everybody I mean those that really matter, not the genre public

      Its not your job to think its for the Courts to judge, did the Taxify driver move her to from point A to B without her consent, legally speaking that’s abduction? Who then knows what could have happened, and people saying things like this happen elsewhere, yes they do and people are punished. Nigerians need to stop with the sentiments,

    How will u feel if someone angrily published ur picture and called u an asewo and ritualist, simply cos u guys had a disgreement? The world wont take it.

      Past midnight? And passenger is making calls in a language I don’t understand? I’m driving to the nearest place I feel safe, I don’t care if it’s the governor. Don’t know the distance to a police station, if my house is the closest I’m going there. So the people passenger has been calling can come and meet us there bah? And either collect my car or kidnap me?. Guess it was when he started driving she got scared. What if she was actually a ritualist? Calling others she don find animal? The driver might not recognize her, and even if he does, doesn’t change a thing. It was all just a misunderstanding I think, blown overtop

    This is my first time of commenting on this issue. Sue the b—h for defamation of character, for physical assault leading to bodily harm and injury!

    Sue her for tampering with evidence, sue the pepper spray company for unlawful advert without consent, Sue taxify for suspension of account without formal investigation!

    Don’t demand for any fvck’n apologies, make her pay for denting your reputation! Apply for a court order to suspend all her contract with MTV pending the final verdict. Petition the national assembly to enact a law protecting men from false rape accusation and propose a fourteen years incarceration for false rape accusation. We are now an endangered specie when the female folks can accuse us of rape and get away with it.

    Pls don’t let the b—h get away with this.

    Although it’s not about the money but 5 mil is too small. Your name is all over the Internet and a small Google search will always bring you out as a suspected kidnapper and rapiSt.

    I believe this taxi driver. nigerians (especially girls)are terribly rude and wicked to taxi drivers. imfact nigeriams are terribly mean and rude to anybody who is lesser than them. that useless girl who calls herself an actress was just hungry to pepper stray someone and she found her victim.

    I pray he wins this case. this will teach rich people a lesson on how to treat people who are lesser than them. nonsense.

      You really have a low grasp of the knowledge of the perverted marriage between aggression, culture, and gender power dynamics, especially in Nigeria.
      I don’t blame you though, you have your own demons to deal with, it’s not easy being a person like you in our country. But don’t transfer your aggression to Nigerian women, we’re all in this together.

    I believe him. An Igbo man hardly combines business with pleasure. When his girlfriend visit his shop to buy an item he will collect his full payment for the goods, but at home he can give her all the money he made for that day. Someone said I should watch the video. AND I am’s only on pornhub I have watched a rape incident with the girl as a camera woman..moreove, rI have watched it on YouTube, she edited the video, muted the guys voice and cut off part of the recording. That is called tampering with evidence. The 2nd edited release , the guy was even calling her a ritualist and also calling his sister chidimma for help.

    I’ve watched the video several times and all I see is a case of a girl (Dorcas) who was either disappointed by her boyfriend or is having a period induced bad day, trying to take it out on an innocent driver.

    The video was all acting and you could see it written all over her.

    If the driver wanted to rape her, he wouldn’t drive her to his gate. Driver pointed out that the pickup location was not far from his house.

    If the driver wanted to rape her, he wouldn’t stand in front of the door quietly urging her out. The mistake he did was to try to drag her out hence she started shouting…. We all did that when we were kids, small touch from our elder ones results in us all crying like wounded lions. Even footballers do it too. Remember that was what made Christiano Ronaldo flee from ManU. He feigned serious injury from a slight touch from Rooney during the Euros.

    Dorcas and her supporters should swallow the humble pie and accept that it was all lies before this escalates higher.

    if evans the kidnapper jams the girl in his action days..she won’t have mouth talkless of snapchat to cry rape with british accent

      @Random she didn’t say her destination. We can’t establish anything about taking her to where is against her will. He said come down and she didn’t and she didn’t even refute that. All she needs to do is say she told him she’s going to so so and so and nobody will support the driver anymore. It is a crime to drag someone out of my own car? Man, Woman, Transgender or equigender?

  20. Amara

    January 27, 2018 at 9:58 pm

    First off , by driving her to an unknown location against her will, that’s already a case for kidnap. 2. By dragging her out of the car, at an unknown location; she could have easily assumed that she was about to be raped even if that was not his intention, it’s still very questionable. I do not deny that DSF overreacted or was probably rude to the driver but in her defense , it was late, the driver took her to an unfamiliar location and was trying to pull her out of the car. Damn, I would have feared for my life too and screamed like a mad woman. People need to look past the fact that she’s “ a female celebrity with an accent who dresses a certain way “ ( Some people and their backward mentality) and understand that sis feared for her life and overreacted. The driver also lied in his initial statement but I bet all he wanted to do was drag her out of the car to leave her in the cold just to teach her a lesson for being rude.

    • Sisi

      January 28, 2018 at 10:16 pm

      I agree with mix of what you say, the thing is she needs to be honest and say that she perhaps overreacted due to being in fear for her life. Upon reflection I am sure she can conclude rape was certainly a reach even if the kidnap carries a little more weight. Honestly the whole thing did not need to amount to all this – but she put it out there and now she has to deal with the consequences. I hope she has more evidence to back up her claims – if not I am afraid her claims are super shaky from the perspective of an outsider.

    Would shola get in a London black cab without informing the driver of her intended destination? At least she grew up in London. This clearly originates from the way some Nigerians belittle taxi drivers, street cleaners and house helps.

    If I were a Lagos taxi driver and you dont tell me your destination at that time of the night, I would kick you out of my car somewhere on the third mainland bridge.

    I’m sorry but it’s easy to scream and shout rape in a country like Nigeria where money talks and the less fortunate pay the price.
    There was obviously an altercation between these two prior to the video that was shown. She must have done something that upset him, and not thinking clearly he decided he would hold her hostage. Both were wrong in this case, and unfortunately for the guy, he has no proof. We have seen situations like this over and over again in America, and the only way these drivers could be vindicated was by showing video proof. 9 times out of 10 it’s always the passenger that starts something. If the guy is really guilty of what you are accusing him of, and you have the strength to record it, why not call someone for help?
    Something is not adding up here!

    I’m willing to give the benefit of the doubt till more investigation. Anytime you enter someone’s car and they make a turn that’s not in line with where you’re going and it’s not a short cut, you are perfectly within your rights to believe something ontoward is happening. Being scared out of your mind at that point is a completely legit reaction. And some aggressive guys will talk about raping byou the minute youoffend them. At that time of day, a lady’s worst fear is probably that she’s about to be raped in such a situation. Also when someone records an event, it may not provide the best evidence depending on when the tape started. I’m hard pressed to believe nothing happened and she released the recording she made. There’s enough here to bear a second look. The case is supposedly with the police. I see no point in the lawyers threatening her to retract. Let the police complete their investigation and if she’s wrong, she can then publish the apology.

    How did this mess start? According to the driver, Shola refused to say where she was going. While Shola said it was becos she refused to pay cash. I think this was a case of ego/misunderstandings and serious agidi on both sides. Shola was wrong to label the man a rapist. How about the man put up Shola’s picture and label her ‘Akunakuna and Ritualist’ Then, the law suits can start from there.

    I’m not a lawyer though I’m a professional. If you ask someone out of your car, they are duty bound t0 get out, location is none of your business, your car is your property especially since she was out running her business at 1.00am! ” Ijakumo ki rinde Osan, Eni a bi ire o kin rinde oru”. It means mostly folks of shady character are out at 1,00am especially since we are not yet a 24/7 economy. She did not attempt to get out. The guy already was retiring for the night and said the whole incident was not far from his home. Do you know how many taxi drivers are shot and stabbed all over the world especially in places like New York? It’s a very dangerous profession or job.

    I feel since it was close home, he too may have had a genuine fear of ritualists especially as Sola was probably speaking a language he didn’t understand so he drove to “safety”. Which is home in this case. If a man wants to Rape you he won’t do it in front of his sister or family. The girl was purportedly saying “he will see or she will deal with it tomorrow”. If you are afraid of kidnapping, tomorrow is the last thing on your mind. This bullying by folks who feel they have law enforcement connections like the Ibiyemio and Sulaiman Guys should stop. Everyone shoul be equal under the law. As for her curses, a curse curseless cannot come upon my head or anyone’s for that matter. It just sheds more light on her. I never even heard of her as an actress and am 50!

    I am only wondering how this story would have turned out for Dorcas if she didn’t have that pepper spray in her bag and was able to escape

    for someone to drive you to HIS house—for WHATEVER REASON at MIDNIGHT while you are ALONE if he didn’t have any BAD INTENTIONS …/ Typing this I am already scared.

    He could have dropped her on the road not take her to his house , keep her stranded since she tried to be stubborn. But take her to his house to start calling out to Chidinma?????

    I don’t care the misunderstanding they had but his house is a place he would have been able to subdue her..

    This law suit to me looks like damage control…it is not who called police first that wins case. If Dorcas , a criminologist has a good lawyer, she will bring this man down.

    he drove her to his house to do what? hiss*
