Veteran Nigerian actor and comedian, Ime Bishop Umoh, well known as Okon Lagos, has been put under heavy attacks by social media users.
On Saturday morning, Ime Bishop Umoh who is well known for his comic character in the movie industry took to his Instagram page to drop his opinion on the Abuja Police rape case which has been trending for a while now.
He stated that the police only stole the ladies’ ‘pride’ without payment and not rape as being accused. He further established a difference between rape and stealing, while also referring to the ladies as commercial sex workers.
Remember that BUSY TAPE had reported that Abuja Policemen raped and convicted some prostitutes in Abuja.
Some of the prostitutes, who were convicted by a mobile court for alleged prostitution had narrated how they were molested, harassed and assaulted by some men of the Nigeria Police in Abuja.
They as well also claimed that they were forced to plead guilty when they were arraigned before the court by the police.
But Bishop in a video with the caption, ‘’ Both are criminal acts but different. Rape and theft there is a little of one in another’’ said the police only stole the ladies’ ‘products’ without paying.
However, a lot of his colleagues and Nigerians were not pleased with his post and have since chided him.
Here are some of the reactions gathered by BUSY TAPE…
