Since the case of Cynthia went viral, ladies who were before now ashamed to share their experiences in the hands of bad guys have started talking.
Below is the near-death experience a young lady had with a man who was her BBM friend:
I am a girl who has fears, beliefs, reservations and just your regular typical Nigerian girl. This past few weeks has been one hell of a game for me. I have really been unsettled and I thought I share this story with you.
In a bid to curtail crime and indecency in Osun State, the state of the virtuous (ipinle omoluabi); the state government constituted a military task force known as SAS(Swift Action Squad) to enforce the ‘omoluabi’ principles in the state. It happened in Osogbo, the Osun State capital few weeks ago, but I didn’t believe until I heard an eye witness report few days ago.
A lady was caught dressed indecently by SAS. According to the eye witness, her blouse covered just half of her breast. She was asked to dismount the motorcycle she was riding on, and the Okada rider was asked why he allowed such nudity on his motorcycle. They were both punished by the Swift Action Squad (SAS).
It is said that “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” and yes, especially when it involves an unfaithful partner. Ramon Arias Apayco, 46, has learnt this the hard way and if he is wise, he will not repeat the mistake again.
Huaman Julia Muñoz, 41, Ramon’s girlfriend flew into a jealous rage when she uncovered her boyfriend’s cheating ways and chopped off his penis but not before she flushed it down the toilet.
In an unbelievable act of revenge on her partner, Munoz allegedly sliced off her boyfriend’s penis with a kitchen knife as he slept at a hostel in Brena, Peru, The New Age website reported. The scorned woman attempted to flee after her violent act but was caught by horrified hostel staff who alerted the police.
