Popular comic actor, Ime Bishop Umoh aka Okon Lagos is currently trending on social media for releasing two videos in which he appeared to mock victims of the recent Abuja raid.
Recall that some women tagged “commercial sex workers” arrested during the raid were reportedly raped by policemen.
But in the first video, Okon said he doubted if it was possible to rape a sex worker, noting that the policemen should instead be accused of stealing.
He also condemned those who accused the policemen of taking away the self-pride and dignity of the alleged sex workers, saying that commercial sex workers lack both.

Following backlash from the public, Okon released another video in which he defended his position in the first video.
He said that anyone who felt angered by his first video was free to do as they pleased.
