I don’t regret saying prost¡tutes have no dignity- Actor Okon

Published

on

Nollywood actor, Ime Bishop Umoh aka Okon Lagos, has stated that he does not regret saying prost¡tues do not have any dignity.

Over 70 women were arrested by the police officers in Utako and the women alleged that the officers took turns to s£xually assault them, using sachet water nylon as condom.

Okon in his video said the women cannot claim they were rªped because they are prost¡tutes and do not have any dignity.

In this new interview, Okon says he does not regret his comment.

he said he does not in anyway justify rªpe but he was astonished that as much as social media users were condemning rªpe, they were not also condemning prost¡tution which he believes is an immoral act.

He said,

“I live my life in such a way that I live for the best and hope for the worst so things hardly shock me.

I saw the backlash coming but I didn’t know it was going to get that sort of attention.

I saw it coming; I knew I might be misunderstood

depending on the level of comprehension of my audience.

Humour waters down the sensitivity of some issues.

Euphemism is saying something that is very harsh in a mild way. I didn’t justify rªpe in any way.

The issue people had with what I said was that I likened rªpe to theft and that I said prost¡tutes do not have dignity.

My assertion was to clarify the fact that rªping a prost¡tute is theft and they don’t have dignity.

My assertion is metaphorical. If I wanted to use a simile, I would say rªpe is like theft.

Rªpe is taking a woman’s dignity without her consent.

I don’t regret saying that prost¡tutes do not have dignity; no one would be proud to introduce themselves as a commercial s¢x hawker.

“I wanted to be fair in my analysis; I was trying to point out the fact that prost!tution is a wrong act, so we shouldn’t be malicious by talking about only rªpe.

Why are we canonising one criminal act and demonising the other? Both acts are morally wrong.

I believe in humanism; as humans, we should observe the golden rule.

I am not trying to say that I am a saint; in fact, I don’t want to be one so that there would be a difference between Jesus and me.

It is unfortunate that some women were rªped by policemen.

“I am not saying it serves them right, but I am also concerned about the immoral act; prost¡tution. The level of moral decadence in the country is worrisome.

I even saw some public figures with verified social media accounts supporting the idea that prost¡tution should be legalised; I don’t want to call names.

I won’t make comments about something insensitive like that.

Rªpe is bad, but prost¡tution should be addressed as an issue as well”.

He added that he doesn’t owe anyone an apology for his comment.

“Everybody around me is a woman; I have a wife and two daughters; my respect for women is inevitable.

I am not going to be shaken; a prost¡tute is not a dignified person.

According to Lucky Dube; ‘the terribly first time time is e thing about the truth is that, when you say it, you always stand alone.

’ I am brave enough to say the truth and nothing will happen to me. I don’t owe anyone an apology,” he said
