The Nigerian actress in a not so long but heartbroken statement expressed her thought on the controversial video. She wrote: “I am very angry and disappointed this morning. It is only in Nigeria that entertainers and comedians make jokes about rape and disabilities and still get to justify what is obviously wrong.
“Mr Imeh Bishop sir, your video was inappropriate and wrong. You don’t make jokes about anything that has to do with rape especially when human beings and the violation of human rights are involved. Women were packed in their numbers and were raped repeatedly with policemen using pure water sachets as condoms and you think there’s a joke there???
“You can’t suddenly turn this into ‘condemning commercial sex workers ‘ as it is shameful enough that our country punishes only the women and not the men who patronize them. It is also shameful that our country doesn’t care about human rights. Even if a person is a ‘criminal’ according to the Nigerian constitution, does that mean they have no rights????
“What is bad is bad, that video was bad. The end! @okonlagos”.
