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.

Policies must be put in place to ensure that such incidents are properly investigated and tried in the future.

There need to be appropriate laws and punishments established to deter anyone from attempting such a heinous crime in the future.

Please do not stand by idly while women are being raped and abused daily under your nose. There is a video with names and voices. The girl is shown clearly. Find her and make restitution to her. And then find these boys and make them pay for their crimes.

Show the women of Nigeria that you care about them and will not let them continue to live in fear
