HAPPY NEW MONTH! An Experience on Sexual Harassment in Public Transportation

Quote of the Day: “Not all mad people roam the streets”.

Scarred,dishevelled,and disgusted. Yes,that’s just how I feel after my experience this morning. Afraid is what I feel for the little girls that might not be lucky enough. Afraid is what I feel for the ladies, and, women that might encounter this experience predator at night. 
For a long time coming now, I’ve been meaning to post the issue of perverts and rapists who drive and mingle with people daily. But one thing or the other gets in the way, and I’m down to leaving it in my drafts for another day (you should see all the posts I have in there,some date back to 2014).
Today I had one of the most terrible experience a young woman could have on board public transportation. It was 8:30 am, and I was hurrying to meet up with my CDS attendance which ends at 9am.

After calculating how long it would take for the more affordable/popular along,rickshaw and trek would take, I opted to chatter a federal approved coloured taxi. The man in his late thirties/early forties whom I suspect to be Igbo because of his accent wanted me to sit in front with him,but I sternly refused and sat at the back and threw my face out the window because I wasn’t in the mood for small talk(thank God). 

As the warm,humid air blew my face, using my side eye,I noticed something funny going on in front. The driver kept fondling with his red Tee shirt. I was going to ask if he was alright when I saw his thrust up full-fledged phallus sticking out of his trouser. He had unzipped himself and was completely naked. He kept saying “All these fine Abuja girls una kill person”.

The route he took was quite lonely and I thought if this man had the boldness to bare it out like this while driving, he can harm me or kill me if I try anything funny. Quickly, I whipped out my phone and started snapchatting what was going on so that my friends know in case anything happened to me. I saved the video before posting it. 

I kept my calm the entire time,and started pleading the blood of Jesus over myself and destiny. I was prepared to kill for my dignity if it came to it. I prayed without ceasing,and refused to look at his bare phallus the entire time. I had heard of cases where confident perverts like this used diabolic means to enchant their unsuspecting prey. I thank God for protecting me the entire time,and even after that.

I cried for the women who leave their children in the custody of drivers and unknown men and women(because some women molest children as well,especially young boys which sadly is not spoken of as much as) to take them to school and back,or other places. We need to watch out for our children,and teach them that situations like this happen. We need to teach them what to do. Can you even imagine what this man can do to a woman or a child at night if he could do this in broad daylight?

I used to know a lady who is late now,in her youth, she entered a public transport wearing a white lace clothe. The bus was overcrowded to the point that people had to stand close to each other,and packed like sardines. By the time she alighted,the back of her dress was completely soaked with semen. Apparently, the man behind her masturbated the entire time. When she raised an alarm,nobody did anything. Things like this happen every day, and most people remove their eyes, or choose to ignore it because they don’t see it as heavy weight a crime as other grievous offences. I know,quite shameful.

In a society that used to hush the mouths of victims of sexual assault and psychological scars in a bid to prevent segregation,we can do more. By continuously taking stands against these perverts like creating hotlines,a list of what to do if you find yourself in this situation,flyers,free psychiatric checks for drivers of short distance public transportation, we can be rest assured that our children,wherever they are, are hopefully safe.

Men like this are ticking time bombs waiting to happen.
They say the morning sunshine is full of laughter; regardless of my experience today, I believe them.

  1. Thank God for keeping you safe. These perverts, sickos etc. come in different shades. Sadly, my experience was getting into a "one-chance" bus earlier this year, at an earlier hour for that matter. But again,thank God for our lives and may His protection continuously be upon us. Thanks for sharing.
