There Has Been No Rape Reported After Flavour's Concert - Police
Allegations of young ladies being raped at Flavour's concert which held in Enugu, on March 31st, made its way online.
The police command vowed to investigate the incident. They have made some findings and doubt that anything happened.
There has been no reported case of rape from the event which took place at the famous Michael Okpara Square.
Some Nigerians on social media had alleged that over 20 girls were raped, claiming that some of the rapist allegedly wore masks during the attack.
In a statement released by the police spokesperson, Ebere Amaraizu, there has been no case of rape lodged in any of its police divisions.
''You even begin to ask yourself, those people that quoted number of the rape victims as 20, how did they do the counting? Does it mean they were following the rapists around and taking the data? Or the victims were assembled at one place and raped? Who are these victims?”
According to clinical psychologist, Toyin Abimbola who spoke to Bounce News, the police will be 'waiting on a long thing' because the rape victims would not go to the police station.
"It's a thing of shame for the victim, because they will be blamed for what happened. So, to avoid the shame she would say nothing or maybe go to an NGO, but not a police station," she told Bounce News.
Abimbola advised rape victims to always seek help, because after being raped they suffer from post traumatic stress that could build up to depression, anxiety, phobia and suicide.
