Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, 22, a Nigerian university student, was raped and murdered in a church on 27 May 2020. Her goal was to become a minister and preach the word of God. This barbaric act has sparked countrywide protests demanding #JusticeforUwa.
Uwa is not an exception. “Whether at home, on the streets or during war, violence against women and children is a human rights violation of pandemic proportions that takes place in public and private spaces.” – UN Women
It’s high time we understand the facts and figures, take tangible actions, and put an end to violence of all forms, once and for all.
