A lady who boarded an inter-state bus from Abuja with its destination bound for Akure has allegedly been molested by a fellow male passenger.
According to the video that surfaced online Monday (June 1), the male passenger who was sitting next to her craftily extended his hand from beneath the chair to fundle with the thighs of the victim.
Reports revealed that the lady (victim) was traveling in the same bus with the perpetrator headed for Akure from Abuja when the act occurred. It didn’t take long before the woman raised an alarm to attract the attention of the other passengers to what had transpired.
However, it was reported that the victim was accused of ‘overreacting’ by the passengers who were supposed to be in support of her.
The victim and the perpetrator are yet to be identified at the time of this report, but well meaning Nigerians are making efforts in bringing the male passenger to book.

If you know the lady involved in the Abuja to Akure sexual harassment kindly send me a dm. I am sure there is a way we can find that pig if we locate the bus driver because they collect passenger’s information at the parks. We will use that man to teach others like him a lesson.

Now this Abuja to Akure kind of sexual harassment allegations are the ones I like . The ones with proof.
RAPE IS BAD and should be punished but ladies that lie against men should also be served the same punishment.
Now how can we find this man and get him charged? pic.twitter.com/ifryqw9Dgq

I don't care when this happened, this man here is a potential rapist, if this shameless old man could assault that lady in a public transport from Abuja to Akure, what happens if he is alone with her? #SayNoToRapist #Saynotorape pic.twitter.com/eCf48mi7QH
