Just recently, a young lady twitted that she had an urgent need of a job and was available to start immediately, only for a young man, who was later uncovered and identified to be a serial rapist and murderer, to contact her, offer to give her what she sought, organise a meeting and dang!, doom for a promising young girl!
It is sad that such an issue of security concern is being raised at several intervals, uncountably, every year and each unfortunate event following another in a space of no time. Really sad. And sadder is the fact that there are people who have taken it upon themselves to counter the cry of women(who usually are at the fore of seeking justice) and laying claims of “gender war”. I find it really nauseating that many men, in this clime, confidently pay no attention to the fact that women and children are better victims than the men. It’s even more appalling that certain masculine individuals go out of the path of conscience to diminish the efforts being made by women to call the society to order especially on matters that relate to feminine concerns.
Say it or agree, women are unsafe in a country filled with people who do not care nor give a hoot about what protection means. Huh, I thought the primary call of man was to protect, nuture and preserve? Have you men forgotten so soon the divine mandate of being at the gate of security? What happened to the fact that you all are expected to be the engine of love? All of a sudden, the fact that you all should take responsibility becomes a mirage and you all cry GENDER WAR? Shame!
Talk about security measures, this particular lady adhered to everything said to be the right steps in ensuring one’s security, acted as a normal human should in order to protect her own self first, knowing that it is unsafe to venture into any kind of unsure business without a backup knowledge. She did all that and guess what? She was overpowered, assaulted, raped and murdered. Chai 😨
I find it difficult to believe this rape culture and apologies but coming from a land where certain men do not care about the issue but their fragile egos, what can I say?
STOP RAPE ❌
STOP BEING APOLOGETIC FOR RAPE‼️
RAISE YOUR SONS RIGHT‼️
