Shocking video shows girls torturing South Sudanese student accused of gossiping

A video of South Sudanese students studying at Ugandan university of St. Lawrence torturing another South Sudanese student has surfaced online. The shocking video which was filmed by one of the attackers as they brutalize their victim over alleged gossiping has triggered a police investigation.

The violent video shows a helpless girl in bed while girls numbering 4 are seen whipping and at some point slapping the girl as she begs for mercy.

In another video angle obtained by HIJ one girl is seen opening what looks like a razor blade and ask her accomplices to hold down the girl as she cut off her hair.

Sources tell HIJ, the girl was accused of gossiping about the group of notorious girls in school headed by a girl named Yar Kuol.

We are told the girl was lured into Yar Kuol’s hostel room where the ordeal went down.

We contacted the hostel and university administrations over the incident but we were told seven girls suspected to have been involved in the incident have been arrested and are waiting to be arraigned in court.

But a source told us the girls’ ringleader named Yar Kuol has been set free after the arrest. Our source claims, Yar’s parents could have bribed the police to release their daughter.

HIJ has tried to contact the victim — whose name we can’t reveal now — through her social media accounts but we haven’t received any respond.
