The young lady who was physically molested by some students of the University of Ghana is threatening to commit suicide.
Amina Haruna Eunice told Joy News’ Hannah Odame that she has been severely traumatized by the incident and could hardly see herself coming to terms with the disgrace and humiliation it has brought her, as well as her family and friends.
“I am feeling like killing myself. It was my grandmother who has been talking to me,” else I would have been dead by now.
About a month ago, Amina Haruna was subjected to what many human rights activists have described as inhuman treatment when some students of the Mensah Sarbah Hall, stripped her, accusing her of being a laptop and mobile phone thief.
The students filmed the molestation and distributed the videos.
Though she is on a police enquiry bail, she has vehemently denied the accusation.
“I am not a thief…I didn’t steal anything,” she stressed.
According to her, she has been doing business on the university campus selling clothes to the students – some of whom buy her wares on credit.
Narrating what happened on that fateful day, Amina said she had gone to the school for her money when a female student – who claimed to have lost a phone previously on a date Amina was there to do business – accosted and accused her of stealing the phone and before she could say jack, male students had swarmed her up and started molesting her.
Amina maintained no stolen item was found on her and that her only crime was going to hall after a student had lost a phone.
She said without giving her chance to explain herself, the guys at the Hall pounced on her, tore her dress, opened her legs and “one of the guys who was wearing shoe kicked me and my [private parts oozed] with blood”.
Recounting the effects of the ordeal on her, Amina said her fiancé, felt so ashamed that he broke up with her. “Who is going to marry me with this disgrace?” she asked, sobbing.
Meanwhile the Committee set up by the University of Ghana to investigate the incident has submitted its report to the disciplinary committee of the University for action.
