Jun 3, 2020 — 

After more than 24hours, the Nigerian police has finally apprehended a suspect. While this is a welcome development, this isn't the best they can do. 

The investigation is still ongoing, so we await further discovery and arrest which must lead to prosecution.

This is a deep reminder that our women (be it young or old) are not safe from the terrible act of men.

We have a job to do, because there is a disconnect between the way Sexual Harassment and Rape is taken and the way it ought to be addressed in Nigeria 

We demand justice for the gruesome death of Uwa.
