Synopsis:

"Victims" follows the life of Yeni, a young girl whose resentment for men was triggered by several emotionally disturbing experiences with them. A suspense thriller with dramatic twists, a very emotional tale told from the heart of a woman in deep pains, a woman deprived, a victim.

Speaking on the movie, Aigbe said "violence against women or even men is a grave violation of human rights and it will forever be decried in our society. "Victims" will however not only highlight  the extraordinary strength of women who have been through such trauma but condemn the practice in it's entirety."

On Sunday, November 1, 2015, Aigbe held a private screening of the movie, which was attended by Laide Bakare, Seyi Law, Toyin Aimakhu, Fathia Williams among others.

"Victims" received a 'Best Achievement Award in directing' at the 2015 Abuja Film Festival.
