The Kwara state police command has arrested the young man in the viral video, Fatai, who teamed up with his friends to physically assault his girlfriend, Aduke, over claims that she was cheating on him.
Fatai had invited his girlfriend, Aduke, to his house where he had gathered a couple of his friends to deal with her for allegedly cheating on him. According to Aduke’s friends, Fatiai had invited her to his house without giving her any idea of what he was about to do.
When she arrived at his apartment, she met some of his friends, all males, in his living room. He later began to interrogate her, accusing her of engaging in hookups.
Fatai had his friends hold Aduke’s hands and legs while he flogged her. At one point, he pulled her pants before he had a change of heart and wore her pants back. Read here.
