A video of a lady being stripped naked by some men for allegedly stealing a phone has gone viral.

To punish the lady for the said offence, the men also applied pepper in her private part.

Since the video started circulating on social media on Monday, Nigerians have greeted it with displeasure, saying that the lady should have been taken to the nearest police station instead of being assaulted.

The yet-to-be-identified men, in the video, overpowered the lady and hurled pepper into her private part as they questioned her on the whereabouts of the phone.

One of the men pushed the pepper deeply with his fingers into her private part, and even threatened to put more if she did not confess.

The lady moved about in pain and discomfort as the pepper began to take effect, crying, “I didn’t take any phone. Jesus! I didn’t take any phone. Jesus, I’m dead. I’m dead.”

Reports say that the incident occurred in Benin, Edo State.

The League of Patriotic Lawyers has given the Edo State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, 24 hours to find those behind the barbaric act.

Force spokesman, Frank Mba, said investigation into the incident had begun but that more information on the case was needed from the public.
