A Jos-based lady who alleged incestry by her father is suffering disbelief from Twitter users who interpreted her claim as mere lies.
Simply identifies as Josephine, the victim explained in a tweet yesterday that her father who is a police officer had been sexually harassing her for nearly two years.
According to the lady, the incestry started when her mother died after she graduated from secondary school. Last Sunday, things went south last Sunday when the father’s attempt to invade his daughter failed. She would later be admitted in a hospital after the scene went violent as her “drunk” father smashed her.
“I will be discharged today, please in God’s name save me,” she pleaded. “I can’t go back to my father’s house. I have had enough please he has turned me into a sex slave. He stopped me from going out and making friends. I am speaking out and probably I will get help. It’s either I get help or he kills me.”
“I need to run far away please if you can help drop your number for me to call. I will prefer people in Lagos. I need to run far away from him so he won’t be able to see me and get me. He’s coming to pick me up by 6 pm. Please help me, guys. We are based in Jos and don’t mind joining the night bus to Lagos,” she added.
DOUBTS, JESTS TRAIL HER CLAIM
Despite her pathetic words, Twitter users expressed scepticism over her narrative. Although, she did not respond to some questions raised.
A tweep identified as Chigozirim, said: “Nigerians can easily be deceived. If her dad is a senior police officer as she claimed, isn’t that more reason she should disclose him now?”
Earlier, Josephine mentioned her dad as ‘John Bature’, OC homicide, Bauchi Ring Road in Jos, the capital of Plateau State.
Another user urged her to share a picture and address. In a video shared by Josephine to support her claims, a masculine voice could be heard from the dark background saying: “What’s up.”
“He even said ‘what’s up’. That’s a young guy’s voice between the ages of 18-23. Scammers everywhere,” Odi, another user tweeted.
Michael, yet another user countered that the video was faked.
He said: “Cheap con artist. Every file contains info about it called metadata. The video you posted above was recorded today around 17:52 (see track create date). So, when did you go to the hospital? How long were you there for? When were you discharged? Scammer.”
WikkiTimes made attempt to revisit the thread this morning, but the user had restricted who can view the tweet.
Alfred Alabo, the spokesman for Plateau State Police Command, when contacted said the command is not aware of the case. He, however, urged WikkiTimes to link up the girl with the command.
