The identities of the young men who were involved in physically assaulting a young pregnant girl have been revealed.
The Herald had earlier reported about a video that had gone viral online. In the video, a young man who seemed to be having a conversation with his girlfriend suddenly stood and landed several slaps on her face.
In his rage, he removed a whip which he used in beating his supposed girlfriend mercilessly.
The girl’s calm reaction to the beating implied that it was not the first time such beating will take place. She had already become accustomed to getting hit by her boyfriend as she made no effort to fight back or run away.
The incident happened in Wadata, around Community Secondary School, Makurdi, Benue State.
According to Activist Ukan P. Kurugh who spoke with the victim, he claimed that Moses is the one who beat the girl.
Moses is an upcoming musician who calls himself King Marett The Entertainer on Facebook.
Nigerians have stormed the Facebook account of the upcoming artiste to drop comments and they expressed their grievances on the said act, condemning him for his actions.
Meanwhile, a screenshot of a chat explaining why he beat her up has surfaced on the internet.
“De gal lied abt carrying a bby 4 me… She end up telling me she aborted de bby .. She insult me 4 asking her… like I was very angry,” the chat from a person with a profile photo of Moses (King Marett) reads.
However, another person identified as Jude Faga Junior has also been accused of being involved in the assault. In the video, voices can be heard calling the attacker “Junior”. As a result, Nigerians have trooped to Jude Faga Junior’s Instagram account to call him out.
The friend who was laughing and holding the girl while she got beaten has been identified by Ukan Kurugh as Tosin Blessing.
Kurugh added that the friend who filmed the attack is Preshy Ibile and the one who posted it online is Emmanuel Spiffy.
Peter Okoye has also vowed to go after them iif they do not turn themselves in within 48hrs.
