Actor Ime Bishop says policemen forcefully having sex with 'ashawos' is theft, not rape

Nollywood actor Ime Bishop, also known as Okon Lagos, has said policemen who allegedly raped commercial sex workers in Abuja, committed act of 'stealing' not rape.

The comic actor, in his video on his Instagram, said that there is a difference between rape and theft.

He argued that sex workers (ashawos) have no self pride and dignity. Saying rape is when a woman is forced to have sex, and her “self pride and dignity” is taken away.

For sex workers, he said, what the police officers have been accused of is theft, because they sell sex, and the sex was forcefully taken from them.

His comment is currently generating controversy online, as many people have argued that rape is Rape, matter what the victim does for a living.

Watch him speak below.

After backlash, the actor released another video trying to defend his earlier comment. He captioned the second video:
"It's terrible when we give a dog a bad name in order to hang it. Who justifies rape? Obviously not me. I think lots of people have problems with hearing and comprehension. Listen well again to the video I made. I never defended the animals that raped the girls. I only tried to open up another perspective to the crime they committed and that is robbery which attracts in most cases, instant death penalty by jungle justice while also condemning commercial sex hawking! Hear, Listen, Understand or shut up!!!"
