Iheme Nancy, an actress, is advocating for justice for a teenage girl named Mary Victor Okon, who was reportedly sexually attacked by her guardian after she declined to have sex with him.
Mary said that her uncle took her to live with a family in Lagos and promised her N10,000 per month.
She claimed that she has not earned her paycheck since moving in with the family.
Nancy, who posted images of the survivor with bruises to her body, wrote:
”This happened this morning at Badore where we are currently filming., this house girl from Calabar was brutally beaten up by the man of the house because she refused to have sex with him…
We have arrested him but don’t want him to go free from this atrocity..
Let’s help her get justice Tag anyone that will help save her and reunite her with her parents , because she is a result of child trafficking.”
Nancy got angry after she was accused of using the victim to chase clout on social media. Responding to the negative comments, Nancy wrote
”How can one be saying I’m clout chasing with a case as sensitive as this …
I’m a woman, I can’t stand and see my little sister like this heaven knows that head will roll… I don’t know her From anywhere but I was touched when I saw what A so called guardian did to someone’s daughter were is your conscience ? If your daughter or sister is brutally beaten like this because of her refusal to have sex a beast ..
tell me how will you feel?? If you come to tell me rubbish I swear on Gaaaaaaaaaaaad I will rubbish you”
In a video posted on her page, the victim recounted how her guardian allegedly sexually harassed her
”One day he said that I should come and sleep with him and I refused. He said that if I have sex with him, he would give me N10, 000 to use to buy something I would need and I said no that my mother would no and he said if your mother knows, she would not do anything. I said no that I am a virgin and I don’t want somebody to disvirgin me and that I have to finish my secondary school.”
