UNN Student In Twerking Video Speaks On Suicide, Claims Her Father Lost Contracts

The University of Nigeria Nsukka student in the viral twerking video, Mirabel Obi has threatened to commit suicide.

After receiving a barrage of backlash and humiliations, the 100 level medical laboratory science student said she is very tired, and just maybe when she’s gone everyone will rest from insulting her.

Naija News understands that there were reports of Obi being expelled from UNN earlier, a claim she has boldly refuted.

Obi’s trouble started after a video of her twerking half-clad in front of Akpabio Hostel in a bid to win N30,000 in a competition surfaced on the internet. The video had caused stirs on cyberspace with many calling the young lady unprintable names.

Taking to her Instagram page again days after the incident, Obi alleged that her father has lost contracts due to her twerking video that went viral five days ago.

She also alleged that she has been receiving a barrage of hate speeches, harassment, and outrage from her family over the incident.

In her post on social media on Thursday (today), the year one student claimed that people had slut-shamed her because of the act, stating that her actions brought shame to her family.

Obi said, “Every day, I just keep wondering if I committed one big crime that would warrant these hate speeches from a lot of people. Like how did my life get here?

“So had it been it was a sex tape, people would expect me to kill myself? A dance that I felt was very harmless. Is it worth it?

“The harassment, the hate speech, everybody being too judgemental, my family ranging in anger, everybody calling me a prostitute, girls slut-shaming me, my father losing contracts, the shame it’s bringing to my family and all.

“I’m very tired. Maybe when I leave, you all will rest.” (sic)

Naija News understands that the university had in a statement released through its Public Relations Officer, Okwun Omeaku, on Wednesday said the institution does not “condone acts of indecency and other morally reprehensible behaviour from our students. Our degrees and certificates are awarded only to those who have been found worthy in character and in learning.”

It was stated clearly in the statement that the management had set up a panel to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident, adding that further action would be guided by the report of the panel.
