Genevieve Nnaji has reacted to the recent killings of two young Nigerian women; a teenage girl, Tina Ezekwe who was killed by the police, and Vera Uwa Omozuwa, who was raped and murdered inside a church in the University of Benin.
The talented Nollywood actress and filmmaker took to her Twitter account to speak on the issue, expressing that men either abuse their powers or have the power to abuse as women live in constant fear of them.
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."

However, it appears her tweet didn't sit well with some people who believe she was turning the issue into a war against men.
According to them, generalizing was unfair and her tweet should have come out differently. Others, however, felt only those who were guilty of what she said, would be annoyed by her tweet which they believe was well put.

Meanwhile, popular singer, Slimcase, has taken to social media to apologize to Nigerians after he received backlash for a comment he made about the death of Tina Ezekwe which many people considered as insensitive.
Recall earlier that Legit.ng reported how the singer in a response to a follower who accused him of focusing on the death of George Floyd in the US, stated that the death of Tina was made for local TV stations to carry.
Following the backlash he received, the singer once again apologized to Nigerians. In a recent video shared, he pleaded for forgiveness from Nigerians. He wrote: "I am just knowing about the little girl cus I hardly check posts I am so so sorry I never meant it that way so sorry I apologize."
