“I tried to live with your apology @Damolako because I thought it was your first time but seeing that you’ve abused others as well @justduns @elharsh I gathered the strength to do this.

“You raped me on Nov 8, 2018 and I haven’t been the same ever since. I deserve Justice.”

“Now he’s calling me on WhatsApp trying to deny when there’s fucking proof. There’s an admission of guilt. I knew this could happen and that was why I made sure he knew what he had done. He’s on my WhatsApp right denying, this guy is honestly sick!!!!!”

She tweeted:

“The court understands that it is usually the victim’s word against the accused so there has to be huge circumstantial evidence outside the testimony of the prosecutrix.
Note that prosecution begins the moment you report the incident to the police and investigation starts.

“What should you do if you are raped?

  1. Report to the police immediately.
  2. Try to get an independent evidence which supports your allegation.
  3. Ask the police to charge the matter to court.
  4. From there, magistrate will decline jurisdiction and transfer the case file to DPP

  1. Accused will be remamded in prison custody and awaiting trial.
  2. Ensure to testify in court.

As a prosecutor, rape is one of the hardest crimes to prosecute succesfully and it is largely due to the ignorance and stigma surrounding issues like these. Victims hardly speak out.”

In conclusion, she stated that Prosecutors are ready to work. However, most cases like these are dead on arrival because people are yet to understand the technicalities involved in rape prosecution.
