Ms Ogochukwu Okafor , the young mother of a six – year – old boy filmed nude in Anambra State in a video that went viral on the internet , has demanded for justice .
Okafor , who spoke to newsmen in Awka on Tuesday , described the incident as ‘ unfortunate , ’ adding that the video has ruined her reputation and career .
The victim , who claimed to be a widow, said she dropped out of school after she lost her husband.
She said that she held an Ordinary National Certificate and was currently unemployed .
Okafor said she could never be assuaged by any amount of plea to rescind her decision to have the suspects prosecuted .
“ I am a single mother. I lost my husband and I am just struggling to take care of my boy who is just six years old .
“ I feel terrible , I feel disorganised ; if it is just my face , I would have endured it ; but my nakedness all over the place!
“ They have ruined my career both in Nigeria and outside the country, ” she lamented .
Ogochukwu Nwankwo , who flogged the victim , said she wasn’ t aware that her action would assume a “ regrettable dimension. ”
She said it was a transferred aggression from her estranged husband who left her and took away her son.
Ogochukwu said her intention was to go to the house of her sister who had complained to her about the relationship between her husband and the lady , and that she had intended to help them settle the matter.
“I feel bad ; I did not have it in mind that it will turn out this way. My plan was just to go there and settle the situation.
“ The memory of my past experience with my ex -husband who took away my son made me to transfer the whole aggression on her .
“ My sister called me for help that her husband had been sleeping around with this lady and that got me angry .
“ When I got there , the lady ran into the toilet and locked the door and I asked her to come out and flogged her , but I was not the person that sent out the video, ” she said .
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Okafor was allegedly lured to the home of her Facebook male friend , Mr. Ifeanyi Azotani, only to be humiliated by Azotani ’ s wife , Tochukwu, and her friend .
The Anambra Commissioner of Police , Rabiu Ladodo , who paraded Azotani, his wife , Tochukwu and her friend Ogochukwu for the act , said the suspects stripped their victim naked and video-recorded her .
He said that Okafor was lured by her Facebook friend , Azotani , to his house in Amawbia , Awka, only for his wife , Tochukwu, to emerge and locked her in the toilet .
“ The suspect ’ s friend , Ogochukwu Nwankwo , stripped Okafor naked and flogged her severely while the principal suspect was busy video- taping the incident and thereafter they pushed her out from the compound naked .
“ The suspects demanded the sum of N 60 , 000 from their victim or have her further humiliated by pushing the video to the Internet .
“ Consequently , when the complainant could not pay the money as requested , the principal suspect actualised her threat and posted the naked video on the internet and since then, the video had gone viral , ” he said .
