Shocking Video Shows Father Flogging Daughter Mercilessly After Her N3ked Videos Appeared Online


Shocking Video Shows Father Flogging Daughter Mercilessly After Her N3ked Videos Appeared Online

A Nigerian woman has been flogged mercilessly by her father and brothers after her alleged s3x video surfaced online.

The brutal beating left the lady with bruises on her bum.

According to reports, the girl was also caught with a s3x toy.

She was stripped and held down by at least three grown men said to be her family members, and flogged mercilessly while she pleaded.

“Daddy please… brother please… mummy…” The woman is heard begging in Igbo as the men held her down and flogged her.

One of her male family members gagged her with a cloth when her screaming got too loud.

She was warned that the flogging will start from the beginning if she doesn’t stop screaming.

She tried to turn from the cane but her brothers were too strong for her.

“Pour water on her,” a male voice is heard saying and someone pours water on her then continues flogging her naked body.

At some point, she’s seen looking too weak to struggle.

Her skin had already turned purple with cane marks all over her butt and back. Blood can also be seen running down her face.

A voice then orders that water be poured all over her body and someone pours more water on her.

The men leave her at this moment and she turns around and tries to curl up on the floor with her legs closed.

But she was told to open her thighs so they can see the lady parts she’s using to misbehave.

She hesitated and they warned her that the beating will start again. So, she opens her legs and they begin flogging her on her private part.

The horrific video is going viral online as people ask for help in finding the family members who subjected the woman to such torture.

Some have claimed the men are not her family members and she was using the term “daddy” and “brother” to appeal to their conscience.

Photos of the alleged mastermind of the attack has been circulated online but it cannot be confirmed if the man had a hand in the horrific abuse.
