- Police Talk Tough, Threatens Prosecution
The viral video of a girl sleeping with a dog in exchange for money has continued to draw condemnation and outrage on social media.
Late last week, a post and video had surfaced online alleging that some ladies are now in the habit of sleeping with dogs in exchange for a sum of N1.5 to N2m.
To lay credence to the seemingly unbelievable development, a slim, light-skinned woman with TikTok user ID @Veegodess trended on social media after making a viral TikTok video claiming she slept with a dog for N1.7million and that there was no big deal about bestiality.
She claimed in the video, that contrary to what people think about sleeping with a dog, she had never contracted any disease.
“What is the big deal there? I only slept with a dog; I didn’t kill somebody. You, in your life, you have done worse, and besides, have you seen N1.7million before?
As if it’s a big deal. And mind you I’m not infected or anything. Stop dying on the matter, I’m enjoying the money,” she stated in the first video.
Her video drew a backlash from many Nigerians who condemned it. Perhaps worried by the backlash she received from Nigerians, she recanted saying she was merely “catching cruise,” a slang for joking.
She posted two more videos in which she debunked her earlier claim, begging Nigerians for forgiveness.
The lady explained that it was a prank and advised people to shun bestiality.
She said: “Guys I was just catching a cruise. I didn’t sleep with any dog. My boyfriend just broke up with me; help me to beg my boyfriend. I’m sorry for the video I made, it was purely cruising.
“I don’t advise someone to be with animals. It was just a prank video, just cruise; you guys know Nigerians and cruise. I apologize to the public, please take my apology.”
This development has made the police issue a warning to ladies to desist from bestiality or face the wrath of the law.
Reacting, Force spokesman, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi who cited the Criminal code Act 1990 took to micro-blogging site Twitter to warn Nigerians that it’s an offense for anyone to have carnal knowledge of an animal.
His tweet reads: “Can you see this? Read it, so that we tell them oh because they all accept the dirty business. The law condemns it, our tradition condemns it, all the practicable religions condemn it so what are we saying.
“Part of our duties as a responsible institution is to educate our people, Nigerians, on the dos and don’ts as stipulated by our laws. That is why I have uploaded this portion of the law here.”
He warned those in the line of business to stop to avoid spreading strange sicknesses in Nigeria.
“However, we need to tell them to stop that nonsense so that they don’t spread strange sicknesses in the country. The ones they had introduced to our system are enough oh,” he added.
The Police have launched a manhunt for the lady in the viral TikTok video
Nigerians on social media have also been raising their condemnation of the development.
According to Nuella Cynthia Raph on Facebook, “There is this trending video, and it’s about Ladies sleeping with dogs just for a million naira. Guys, please be careful with the kind of ladies you get entangled with out there. Imagine someone’s girlfriend, heartbeat and future wife sIeeping with a dog because of money.
And the annoying part is that when they get this money, they don’t invest in anything useful apart from buying bags, hairs and iPhone and living other luxurious lifestyle” she lamented.
Similarly, Isreal O. Naixzy raised alarm that some ladies are desperate to do anything to make money.
“Some girls are very desperate to do anything even though if it involves death and life” he wrote.
Believe Gabriel Isaiah wants the lady behind the TikTok video to be punished.
“She invited this trouble upon herself. She should take responsibility of her action. We should be catching cruise with positive things not stupid things that we can’t even be bold enough to explain to anyone” he wrote.
