Lack of stiff punishment reason for persistent rape cases – Eniola Badmus

Published

Eniola Badmus

Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus has shared her near-rape experience while she was in secondary school.

In a recent interview with The Punch, the actress revealed that most women have experienced sexual assaults and the crime lingers because the authorities have refused to implement strict punishments for perpetrators.

She said:

“Firstly, whether people are saying the truth or not, 95 per cent of females are sexually harassed on a daily basis. Because there hasn’t been stiff punishment over the years, this act has continued to linger from one generation to the other.

“As a young girl, a lot of things happened to me and I’ve also seen a lot of things. I grew up in a polygamous home and a lot of people lived with us. When I was in my final year in secondary school, I was almost raped. It was a very close shave. I was saved by a guy called Michael Akinyemi.

“I don’t know where he is now but I can’t forget him. He was injured in the process but he saved me. I was practically five minutes away from being raped. I didn’t report then because of the stigmatisation. The experience was really bad because my assaulter was bent on raping me, hence we struggled so much. I still remember the guy’s name but I would leave it out.’’

Published

on

The Lagos State Government has asked the Federal High Court in Lagos to dismiss a suit challenging the conviction of actress, Funke Akindele, her husband, Abdul Rasheed Bello, and 236 others.

Akindele, alias Jenifa, Bello and the others were arrested for violating the state’s lockdown and social distancing order to check the spread of COVID-19.

She and Bello, in particular, were convicted on April 6, 2020, by an Ogba Magistrates’ Court, days after they held a crowded house birthday party in violation of the social distancing order.

They were sentenced to 14-day community service after pleading guilty.

But a Lagos-based lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, approached the court, challenging the constitutionality of the Lagos State Infectious Diseases (Emergency Prevention) Regulations 2020 pursuant to which Akindele, her husband and 236 other residents were convicted and sentenced.

Ogungbeje prayed the court to declare that;

“The purported arrest, arraignment, trial, conviction and sentence of person/Nigerian citizens under the Lagos State Infectious Diseases (Emergency Prevention) Regulations 2020 for an alleged offence unknown to law and violation of same, which cannot be grounds for criminal liability is a nullity.”

At the proceedings in the matter before Justice Maureen Onyetenu, the government, through its counsel, Jonathan Ogunsanya, said it had filed a preliminary objection, praying the court to dismiss Ogungbeje’s suit for lacking in merit.
