KAMPALA, UGANDA: “Pretty Nicole”, the girl who appeared in the viral video being beaten by three females over a man has shocked police after telling officers that she is to blame for everything that happened to her.

The development comes after KMP Deputy Spokesperson ASP Luke Owoyesigyire on Monday revealed that police had kicked off investigations into the torture and violent conduct by a group of three girls who were filmed beating up a colleague for allegedly falling in love with the boyfriend of one of their colleagues.

However, Owoyesigyire in a Tuesday update said when they got in touch with the victim in a bid to ensure she records a statement and provide more evidence to pin the suspect, the victim blamed herself for her predicaments.

“She has refused to cooperate with the Police to help identify the suspects but is instead blaming herself for whatever happened and feels she deserved the beating,” Owoyesigyire said Tuesday morning when approached for a comment on the matter.

He however noted that police agreed with the victim’s mum in a bid to help her get over the traumatizing moment she went through during the incident, adding that in a bid to avoid circumstances where the victim might take away her life, police have provided her shelter as efforts to give her professional help continue.

“We agreed with the mom to have her sleep at the Police station because she needs some professional help. Who knows she might even commit suicide,” the MP deputy spokesperson said.
