Some of the men who humiliated and inserted pepper in a young woman’s private part for allegedly stealing a phone have been arrested by the police, reports say.
The unfortunate incident which happened in Benin City in Edo state was filmed and uploaded on social media to the disgust of many who saw the video.
It was gathered that the barbaric act was started after a man who had had sex with the young woman in a hotel where they had lodged claimed his phone was missing.
Even as she insisted that she was innocent of the crime, the man dragged her to a native doctor around Ugbiyokho area of Ekehuan Road, Benin, who declared her guilty.
Ignoring her claims of innocence, the mob stripped her and poured pepper in her vagina in a bid to force her to admit to the crime.
The action of the men in the video prompted the League of Lawyers to release a statement urging the Edo State police command to fish out the culprits.
According to reports circulating social media, the men were arrested yesterday evening, along with the manager of the hotel he lodged in. The search is on for the native “ doctor” and other offenders.
