Bring The ABSU 5 Who Gang-Raped Woman in Nigeria to Justice

Quote:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

On or around August 16th, 2011 five male students of Abia state University Nigeria imprisoned and raped mercilessly for several hours a fellow female student. What had she done to deserve this? Apparently she insulted one of them and this was her punishment. As though the rape wasn't enough, they also filmed it and callously passed the footage around to their friends and from there on to the entire campus. This footage has been making waves online and amongst Nigerian bloggers with several people calling out to the government to do something.
The government must find these boys and hold them accountable.
They must know that Nigerians and people all around the world will not sit by idly while such atrocities continue to take place.

There's a desperate search on for a female university student in Nigeria. Some want to silence her. Others want to protect her.

On August 16, the unidentified woman was gang-raped by five male students at Abia State University -- for hours, as she begged first for mercy, and then for her rapists to kill her because of the pain. And it's all on video.

Change.org member Adetomi Aladekomo has joined bloggers and activists working to bring the victim to safety and her rapists to justice by starting a petition to Abia State University (ABSU) and state officials. Sign Adetomi's petition to demand a full investigation into the videotaped rape in order to prosecute and convict the "ABSU 5" gang-rapists.
