Alleged rape victim threatens suicide after Facebook users accused her of creating a fake page, pretending to be a man and confessing to gang-rape for publicity

The story of the woman who was allegedly gang-raped by 5 men has taken a different turn as she's now hinting at suicide after being accused of pulling a publicity stunt. Recall that a "man" took to Facebook to post a "confession" claiming he and 4 of his friends gang-raped a woman. He begged for the woman's forgiveness as he claimed 3 out of 5 of them who gang-raped the woman have died and he doesn't want to die. In addition to his "confession" post, he shared a photo of his alleged victim's Facebook profile as he begged her to forgive him (read here). Soon after, he "deactivated" his Facebook account. Afterwards, the alleged victim took to her Facebook account to speak more on the abuse. She also used the opportunity to promote a book she wrote, narrating her ordeal. However, Facebook users began poking holes at the "confession" post. Some suggested the victim is the one behind the account that posted the confession. Then, a Facebook influencer, Ijeoma Chinonyerem, shared a post, analysing the confession post and arriving at the conclusion that the "victim" is the one behind the male account that posted the confession. She pointed out that the alleged male rapist posted a screenshot of the victim's profile with an icon that allows him to change the victim's profile photo and header photo. She questioned how Facebook would give a user the option to change another user's photo.  After she was called out, the "victim" deleted all her previous Facebook posts then shared new posts threatening suicide.  She didn't confirm or deny the allegations but simply begged Ijeoma Chinonyerem "stop already".  Ijeoma has called her out for the initial stunt and for threatening suicide, rather than owning up. The post Alleged rape victim threatens suicide after Facebook users accused her of creating a fake page, pretending to be a man and confessing to gang-rape for publicity appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
