The video which has since gone viral was shared on Twitter by a user @DanielFaithArts on Monday, saying the victim who is his sister was sexually molested all through the journey.
He said the victim was accused of overreacting by some passengers in the vehicle when she raised the alarm, this prompted her to make the video.
In the 30-second footage, the alleged molester could be seen touching the lady’s thigh severely as they travelled.
His tweet reads;
This happened to a sister of mine today in a public transport. This man molested her all the way from Abuja to Akure, she screamed and the people in the bus said she was overreacting, so she made this video.
And even at that, a soldier on the road that she tried reporting to told her to keep quiet or be detained because the said man spoke to him in Hausa. Why is it that our ladies are no longer safe?
I am really livid. I just need someone to recognize him and help bring him to the fate animals like him deserve. Our girls are not safe with beasts like this roaming the street
The video has since triggered widespread condemnation and criticism from Nigerian Twitter users.
Several users have called for the identification, immediate arrest and prosecution of the culprit before he ‘preys on another victim.’

Now this Abuja to Akure kind of sexual harassment allegations are the ones I like . The ones with proof.
RAPE IS BAD and should be punished but ladies that lie against men should also be served the same punishment.
Now how can we find this man and get him charged? pic.twitter.com/ifryqw9Dgq

If you know the lady involved in the Abuja to Akure sexual harassment kindly send me a dm. I am sure there is a way we can find that pig if we locate the bus driver because they collect passenger’s information at the parks. We will use that man to teach others like him a lesson.

A grown ass man molested someone all the way from Abuja to Akure. What is wrong with people for crying out loud? I can’t even begin to imagine how the lady felt throughout that journey. She said she was even asked to shut up when she complained. Man the society is fucked!

On this Abuja to Akure issue, asking questions like;
I think there was travel ban
Why didn’t she switch seat
Why was she calm
Is the same thing as;
What was she doing there
What was she wearing
Why was she she walking alone.
Don’t be a rape apologist, think before you tweet!

One thing aside the sexual harassment by that unfortunate man from this Abuja to Akure viral video is that the FG interstate border closure is audio, people are travelling from one state to another, all you have to do is to bribe Nigerian Police on the road.
