This rumour is probably true and is of high priority – here's why:
The woman was burning some grass behind the shop belonging to the refugee man but when asked why she did that, she screamed and alleged the man attempted to rape her. The men from the host community later collected sticks and attacked the man by whipping and brutalizing him nearly to death. Refugee community members intervened and hurried the man to Ocea Hospital. Many eyewitnesses, including some from the host community, have said that the allegation was incorrect and unsubstantiated and were intended to destroy the man's reputation.
