Lagos State had a carnival on the 3rd of December, which had Oba Akran in Ikeja part of Lagos shut down. The event had various entertainers and to many who went, it was fun.
But not for Ibukun Olukoya, one of the dancers at the event, who claimed to have been sexually assaulted. After their performances, she explained that the organisers of the event made excuses why they could not pay them that day.
Dissatisfied, Ibukun and her team mates decided to protest by matching towards the stage but during the match, they got scattered leaving only her.
Alone and helpless, some of the men in the audience close to the stage assaulted her, first trying to steal her phone, then ripping her clothes and underwear off before penetrating her with their fingers.
While crying for help, a policeman nearby looked on without doing anything until a dancer came to her rescue and took her to the paramedics, who cleaned her up.
Ibukunoluwa is demanding justice and wants to know why Lagos State allows its officials to treat its entertainers without respect, and why the policeman deserved to keep wearing his uniform.
