A young lady, Yinka, who was raped by her boss and later sacked by her company because she dared to report the case to the police, is in a serious dilemma on what to do so as to get justice from the company.

Besides sacking her, the company also arrested her and had her locked up on trumped up charges of defrauding the organization.

But a whopping 83% of Pulse Nigeria Poll voters think she should sue the company but do you think she should go that route?

Read her letter here:

"My name is Yinka and I am a victim of circumstances. I was working with an out-sourcing company as the secretary but right from the first day I was employed, my direct boss who is a partner in the business, made sure I was going to face a tough time in the company.

He started by asking me out, making me realise that the only reason he employed me was that he wanted me to be his girlfriend. It was so annoying that he seemed to have overlooked my qualifications and only employed me because he wanted me in his bed.

I told him to give me sometime to think about his proposal. I was only using that to buy time to figure out what steps to take. But he would not let me be and vowed that he must sleep with me or he would make life difficult for me.

I worked in that company for only three months when my boss called me into his office one rainy day and forcefully raped me. All my screams for help could not be heard by anyone because of the rain. After the rape, he was not even remorseful as he told me to get out of his office and can go to hell.

I was devastated and felt like killing myself. At home, I told my older brother who went me to lodge a complaint at the police station but typically, because of his influence, the case was struck out by the police.

I did not know what awaited me at the office as I was fired the next day without any compensation while I was also arrested and locked up for three days by the police on trumped up charges of fraud.

There is no one to fight for me in this glaring injustice done to me.

How do I get justice in this country?
