    God bless everyone who has worked tirelessly to bring this to fruition. We will keep on speaking about it. #rantingisnotinvain, #Justice4victims

    Culled from AdunniBrown’s page:
    “There are currently about 600 pending sexual offense cases in the high court of Lagos. Which doesn’t include those at magistrate courts.”
    “Let justice reign for
    -the woman burned from the neck down by her husband
    -the 6 month old baby assaulted by her Uncle
    -the 17 year old impregnated by her grandfather
    -the 10 year old girl, raped by her father’s colleague”

    This is a step in the right direction. Hopefully, other states will follow suit.
