Three girls in Buea, South West Region of Cameroon were on Wednesday arrested by security forces for torturing another lady.
In a viral online video, the trio are seen undressing the victim and beating her with whips.
They go ahead to force her parade the town’s streets naked.
The video made waves, sparking widespread anger.
Cameroon’s renowned entertainer, Cyril International has reacted saying: “This is the most Barbaric act I have ever seen first hand from Young Women. If you aren’t courageous enough, you can not watch the videos.”
Cyril went on to call on women activists “to make sure the perpetrators of the evil act pay the price and face the full wrath of the Law.”
Hours later, another video surfaced of the three assailants being taken into custody.

The tortured girl, as the story goes, is said to have been dating a young man who had a baby with one of her assailant.
Outraged after the discovery, she mobilised two of her friends who joined her in attacking and torturing the other lady.
They also used a razor blade to shave her bald before tearing her clothes off and compelling her to parade the streets bare-bodied.
Many are now calling for the three to be charged to court “for the barbaric act.”
