Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic and Falz have condemned the rape of 3 Nigerian girls, Tina, Uwa and Jennifer.
Reacting via her Instagram account, Rita Dominic wrote:
There is nothing that these 3 GIRLS have done to deserve the atrocities that has befallen them.
Tina was killed by a policeman whose job was to protect her. She was 16years old
Uwa a university student went to a church to read and she was raped and murdered. She was only 22 years old.
Jennifer was raped by 11 men. She is just 12 years old. 12 years old for goodness sake!
What are we doing wrong that boys and men think that it is ok to continue violating girls and women in this manner?
Let me tell you what. We are not punishing the men who commit these atrocities in this country. We are not doing enough to hold RAPISTS accountable. We are not doing enough to check POLICE BRUTALITY.
We demand justice for these young girls! Our government and our justice system must respond to these matters PROMPTLY. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Genevieve Nnaji reacted via Twitter. She wrote:
They either abuse their power, or have the power to abuse. In or out of uniform, we live in constant fear of men. Tina Ezekwe. Vera Omozuwa. Rest In Peace my darlings. We will get justice.
Singer, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz wrote, “It’s so exhausting to see injustice continue to thrive time after time. Every time we say not again, and then there is a new story. Enough is enough. It’s too disheartening. Justice must be served for the innocent souls we keep on losing. #JusticeForTina #JusticeForUwa.”
The ‘Bop Daddy’ singer also stressed the need to people to make their voices heard through peaceful protests.
“It is important that we are fearless and we are ready to challenge the government through peaceful protests. It’s not enough to sit in our houses and post on socials. Justice must be served #JusticeForUwa #JusticeForTina,” he added.
