The past few days on social media have been long and arduous in light of the death of some young Nigerian ladies who lost their lives to sexual abuse.
This has also led to several victims who have suffered molestation coming out to share their horrific experiences at the hands of sexual predators.
In light of these occurrences, some popular female celebrities who have been agitating on social media took the fight for justice to the streets of Lagos and Abuja in a bid to protest against the continuous cases of sexual abuse.
Nollywood actresses Hilda Dokubo, Tonto Dikeh, comedian Warri Pikin and media personality Bolanle Olukanni, were among popular celebrities who were spotted lending their voices to the Stand to End Rape cause.
Dokubo in an Instagram post urged authorities to stop sweeping rape cases under the carpets while they let abusers roam free to do more harm.
She said: “We can't keep burying our children because those who are supposed to be protecting us are busy questioning and blaming the victims. When those who stood up and demanded justice is counted. Will you be numbered?What will your number be known for?”
