Suspected Woman Thief Stripped Naked by Legon Students: Lawlessness Hall of Fame

 [ad#GBAF-1-text]

[ad#Caricature-text]Every form of lawlessness should be treated with the same displeasure and students of higher institutions should know better.  Some male students of the premier university, University of Ghana, Legon, are making news for a shameful reason, intended to indulge their lust and lack of self restrain.  In summary, a female suspect accused of stealing from one of the dormitories was sexually abused by the male students and recorded on video. In the video, you could see some of the students inserting their fingers into the woman’s vagina and fondling her breast as the woman begged them to forgive her trespasses. It is shameful that students at this level of ‘enlightenment’ would ignore the rule of law and embark on such despicable behavior. KAM

The alleged thief being covered by some male students of the Mensah Sabah Hall.

Update:

The Crime officer at the Legon Police command, ASP Emmanuel Basin-Tale says the police are hunting for the students who molested Amina, the alleged female thief suspected to have stolen a laptop and other gadgets belonging to some female students. Details soon.

Full Story from CitiFM

Authorities of the University of Ghana are yet to react to the molestation of a suspected female thief at one of the halls of residence by male students on the dawn of Thursday March 31.

Some male Students of the Mensah Sarbah Hall annex B arrested Amina at about 3:00am for allegedly stealing a laptop and other gadgets belonging to a female student of the mixed hall.

Instead of handing her over to the University police, the students many of whom are males stripped her naked and physically abused her and recorded the act.

In the ‘nasty video’ obtained by Citifmonline.com, Amina could be seen weeping severely as she pleaded with the students to forgive her. But the men without mercy tore her into pieces to expose her naked body.

They opened her legs wide and some of the guys could be seen inserting their fingers into her vagina.

The students, after molesting the victim, handed her over to the police who are investigating the incident.

Citi News understands the University authorities are investigating the situation and will come public in the coming days.

The Crimes Officer at the Legon Police command, ASP Basim, who confirmed the incident to Citi News, said the suspect has been on the police wanted list before Thursday’s alleged thievery.

He however condemned the molestation of Amina.

“She was apprehended and brought to Legon and handed over to the police for investigation so she is in custody. About two months ago, she committed a similar offence and she was arrested and cautioned but because of her circumstance she was granted Court bail to report at the Court. Unfortunately she failed, and the case was presented in her absence and a bench warrant was obtained. So we were looking for her when she committed this recent theft”.

“But if you suspect anybody for committing any offense, the best is to apprehend the person and hand him or her over to the police but not to molest or beat the person up. That will mean taking the law into your own hands” the Crimes Officer lamented.

The sexually molested lady has not been confirmed to be a student of the University.

    • Makaveli awudu

      I knew they were thought to react as humanz whom they will lead our country someday, but not animalz with no moralz. She stold it yez, BUT will you beat & strip her naked if she was your sister? I wonder what they even got from striping her naked. It seems they have no sisters or were not even born by a woman. G.P.D. we’re watching you from where we’re. you must do something to those boyz. May God give you strength AMINA. Take care.

  • gentlespykes

    Its really sad that such an act should happen on the campus of the university of Ghana, the attackers of this girl should be apprehended and dealt with

  • cynthia

    This is a big
    disgrace to the university. It really questions the maturity and the intelligence of the students. They must be brought to justice and women in Ghana should rise up against this. Violence and Abuse against women should stop FULLSTOP.!!!

  • kodjo

    To think that a school acclaimed to be best in Africa can host such hooliganism is very heavy for me to take …hmmm come to think of it is this what the future is going to be like ? are this the future leaders popularly spoken about..? if yes then what hope do we have two wrongs never make a right what if you had a sister who is a clepto, how will you feel if this happened to her.SHAME ON THOSE GUYS this is cheap men and Carlos shame on them.

  • claodo

    where is the video?

  • Rebeldj77

    “Questions upon questions”.
    Could it be that she might have reached a compromise with her captors, having located her coving (since she was being sort after by the police), who on the “D-day” still posesing unquenched apetites, requests for something outside the agreement, of which she must have declined and perhaps triggered the said “assault”? A “1,000 & 1″ questions could be generated from this rather unfortunate phenomenon, but it still doesn’t warrant the rather ribald acts staged by if I may call, a group of “disoriented psychopaths”.
    Why is it taking “forever” for the UG authorities to give these students up? Doesn’t the Legon police have the jurisdiction to override their authority if they seem to be obstracting “justice”?
    Please Amina needs to be acquitted of all charges (including the old) if due process will further be delay.
    Amina deserves more than this.

    this is really embarassing.those responsible for this should be seriously dealt with.

  • Kaiser

    The fact that the video was edited and the cameraman having a focus light clearly means that this was a pre meditated thing and all people involved should be punished severely. This does not make sense! SHAME ON ALL THE PEOPLE INVOLVED.

    i am very disgusted at this, people should not take the law into their own hands. yeah, what she did was wrong and she was suppose to be dealt with my the law but that doesn’t give students the chance to humiliate her like that. if this happened in the Uk all the people who were involved will be punished and me sent down for taking the law into their own hands and also taking advantage.
    secondly, i believe some people’s mentality is very dim that is why they see nothing wrong with what the students did. it is morally wrong and it seems that people have no respect for people just because they are learning what the western world is doing ;so they think is cool to disrespect women. these guys who did this should not forget that there were born by women who are their mothers.
    the police should deal with this case thoroughly and bring those people to justice .people should wisen up and stop acting like nerds and morons.

    May The Lord grant Amina that inner strength to live on, since she could poses suicidal tendencies after the assault.
    “When her accusers were asked to be the first to cast a stone at her if any did not poses any form of sin”, in the case of the woman caught in adultery(in the Bible), what happened?
    The Bible also warns us about taking the law into our own hands; “Vengeance is The Lords”.
    As a male, I am very disappointed in my brothers who could not show mercy to Amina’s ”image” as The Lord had done in their case when unknowingly stepped on an ant (equals murder).
    They have reached for the speck in Amina’s whiles still having in their eyes, an entire plank.
    I pray the indulgence of civil rights and the appropriate bodies concerned not to turn a blind eye on this issue. It so much requires addressing.
    The Lord is your strength in these times, Amina.
    Stay strong.

    Definitely agree Brian. The video has actually motivated me to work on women’s issues in Ghana to make sure people do not think they have the right to do this.
    This is certainlynot the only discourse this video touches, there are issues of mob justice, victim’s protections rights and so on, but I feel most compelled to help give girls confidence and standards to stand up for other girls in situations like this.

  • secretaddy

    I want to correct something you said. This was NOT an issue about uncontrollable lust, but rather one about power, control, violence against women and sexual assault !

    These men NEED to be persecuted for thinking that they can take the law into their own hands and blatantly violating her human dignities.

  • Brian Laung Aoaeh

    This is an outrage. It should not be allowed to stand.

    Tears ran down my cheeks as I sat in my office in far away New Jersey in the United States and watched a graphic video showing a young woman, an alleged thief, being attacked and sexually molested by a mob of men on the campus of the University of Ghana (Legon) in Accra.

    I did not have the privilege of going to Legon, but I have always held it in very high regard, after all my father, his younger brother, my uncle and many of my favorite uncles and aunties all were educated in the venerable halls of Ghana’s first university, and one of West Africa’s finest.

    For the first time, I am glad that I was not educated at Legon. I am not asserting that this crazed mob is representative of all the students that attend that august institution. However, I am sure that there were members of the Legon community that could have stepped in to prevent this atrocity from happening. That no one intervened directly is nearly as bad as participating directly in the crime if members of the Legon community were bystanders.

    We should all be ashamed. Ashamed that such a dastardly act could happen on that campus. Ashamed that campus security saw it fit to apprehend the victim, but let the mob that was molesting her go free instead of immediately apprehending everyone that may have been a witness to, or participant in this unfortunate incident. Ashamed that this moment of mob madness may put a blemish on the good name of Legon, and of Ghana.

    A heated debate broke out on FaceBook after the video was posted. Some are of the opinion that the video should not be shared widely. They argue that we must protect the victim’s privacy and dignity. They argue that we should not place the blame on students of Legon, after all many non-students roam the streets of the university. They argue that the victim is to blame for what happened to her, after all they say, she stole cellphones and a laptop. The arguments for doing nothing, or acting with caution, or acting timidly are numerous. I understand them, and I sympathize with the emotions that lead to those sentiments.

    Here is a question; what would you do if the victim were your sister, your wife, your friend? I know what I would do. I would demand justice. No ifs, no buts. Protect her dignity? How does doing nothing protect her dignity? Pray, tell me, how? Reports indicate that she’s in custody. Not in hospital, mind you. In custody. Where are her attackers? No one knows. That is an outrage.

    To those that would make the assertion that she somehow deserves what happened to her I have a few questions. She deserved to be sexually molested for allegedly stealing cellphones and a laptop? Were these allegations proven to be true? If they were, do the people that make this assertion mean to tell me that they equate what happened to the victim with the value of the cellphones and laptop that her attackers allege she stole?

    The people that say we should not blame students of the University of Ghana are missing the point. Inaction is bad enough. Inaction when one is witness to a crime of this nature is at least as bad as, if not worse than the crime being committed. Students that witnessed this could have acted before security arrived. They could have helped security apprehend some members of the mob that perpetrated this heinous crime. Yes, we do not yet know if the main actors are students of Legon. But, we may assume that some students saw what was happening and did not act to prevent it. That is a shame, and it certainly is not what Ghana expects from its future leaders.

    If we do nothing we are even more guilty than this crazed mob. They may claim that they acted irrationally, on the spur of the moment, out of momentary insanity. We have had ample time to reflect, and if we choose not to act forcefully, and with outrage, to bring justice to bear . . . We are even more culpable than the men that attacked the victim.

    If she stole anything she deserves to answer for her crime. She does not deserve to be attacked by predators whose only intent is to violate her womanhood.

    We have to be better than that. We have to hold one another to a much higher standard. Ghana deserves nothing less.

    Amina is being alleged to have stolen laptop and other gadgets,but that wouldn’t have warranted the assualt,sexual harrassment and the brutality she recieved in the hands of some male students of Legon. The school authorities and the police must get to the roots of the matter to bring those male students to justice.They have no right to take lwas into their hands. How sure are we they didn’t rape? University students should have some level of moral restrain in a matter of that nature.
