My phone rang early January 2006 and it was the voice of a man, possibly in his late 30s or early 40s. His voice was coarse and suspicious. Innocently I said “Hello” and this marked the beginning of the terror. “Am I speaking to Omowunmi Akinnifesi?” he asked. “Yes” I replied without a hint of fear. “How are you?” He asked again. “I am fine thank you. Whom am I speaking to?” I asked. “This is…… “I admire you and I think you are the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. You are charming and extremely sexy” how can I meet you? I know you like Oprah Winfrey. I can introduce you to her, she is a very good friend” he said.

From that first call, the stalking intensified and has continued till date. According to Omowunmi, there are days when he has called her phone over 30 times! It may seem funny but such experiences are actually traumatizing. We hope with the SIM registration in Nigeria, phone stalkers can be apprehended and charged with harrassment.
In other news, Omowunmi recently met the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Orelope Adefulire. The office of the Deputy Governor of Lagos State and Omowunmi are currently planning a collaborative initiative focused on women empowerment in Lagos State.
