A video going viral on Twitter shows the heartbreaking moment some FUTA students ganged up to beat up a 100 level female student.
In the shocking video, four girls and a boy can be seen surrounding the 100 level student, whose name has been given as Bolu. They seem to have cornered her in a room, with the only means of escape blocked by one of the students.
The bullies begin by aggressively ordering her to “kneel down”. They all held cables and mop sticks as they asked her to go on her knees.
At first, Bolu laughs and doesn’t obey them. Enraged, the only boy in their midst slaps her across the face multiple times, then begins to flog her all over with a cable. The lady holding a wooden mop stick then uses the stick on Bolu too.
Soon, others join in, all of them hitting Bolu at the same time as she asks, “What did I do?”
At some point, the women try to pull off Bolu’s shirt. One of the women carrying out the assault was referred to as “Bimpe” in the video.
The video of the assault lasted for about two minutes At the end of the video was a warning to 100 level students to watch their mouth.
According to online reports, one of the female bullies had an issue with Bolu and she reported to her school father. It was the boy who then led the assault on Bolu.
Bolu, a 100 Level Ecotourism and Wildlife Management student of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, was severely injured in the attack and is receiving treatment.
The video has generated outrage and Nigerians are calling for all the attackers to be found and punished.
