Rivers Rape Allegation: The Social Media Trail by realityy2019: 11:51am On Jun 15, 2019
I have to create new moniker in order to avoid unnecessary PMs/ insults in my original handle. We all know the power of social media, it can make you and it can break you. Pls I apologize for any typo error.
Note: am not here to justify rape, rape is a crime and is punishable.

The media trial, conviction and sentencing of Mr. Chetachi Onwume is condemnable. Rape is a crime under the criminal laws of Nigeria, and the law is trite on the need to prove criminal allegations beyond reasonable doubt. Moreso, an accused person under our criminal jurisprudence is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Rape is not proved by cooking up romantic stories that do not add up at all. For one to establish rape, you need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that there was nonconsensual sexual intercourse.
the incident occurred when she went to attend to Mr. Chetachi in his hotel room. It is unbelievable that the victim was held against her wish and raised no alarm. I mean how could a customer try such thing on you in ur place of work and you couldn't shout/scream? This mischievous to tell.
Come think of this, what bill exactly did this said lady went to give to Mr. Chitachi at odd hour as claimed by her? (Yeye dey smell)

there is no single evidence by the supposed rape victim to prove sexual intercourse. To establish the offence of rape, penetration is vital. The rape victim has the onus to prove beyond reasonable doubt that there was penetration no matter how slight.
I believe the hotel has CCTV installed in their rooms they should come up with the footage.

How come the hotel has not publicly tell us their own part of the story if this is real?

If it is really a Rape case I believe the police that came would have taken the suspect with them maybe transfer the case to the appropriate desk (I stand to be corrected tho)

It is not fair for Mr. Chetachi to be tried, convicted and sentenced for the offence of rape in the court of public opinion. There are so many opportunists who are out to blackmail their victims who refuse to yield to their monetary demands.
We have seen so many instances where girls come out later after they had done irreparable damage to the reputation of their victims to say that they were not actually raped. Let's not forget, people can do anything for money.
This is a very dangerous trend, I must say, if this baseless allegation is allowed to consume the hard earned reputation of this young man, then I fear for our political class as this form of blackmail will become an easy tool for political opponents.

Mr. chitachi is a peace loving young man and hard working whom we know and to the best of our knowledge can't indulge in such act.

Some of you here has already started shifting the loads of insults to his constituency (Igbo 1 ward3 and Etche at large). Pls for record purpose ETCHE people are peace loving people, where you find law abiding citizens pls, don't crucify us without trial.

Let's keep claim until proper investigation is being carried out regarding this matter.

Think twice before you post/comment,
You might be destroying another mans Image

Thanks for Understanding

True

those girls can do anything for money.

let the police conduct proper investigation and punish the guilty one not media trial. At least a suspect is innocent until proven otherwise.
