The attention of the Nigeria Police Force Zone 2 Command covering Lagos and Ogun State has been drawn to the news going round that two suspects Don-Chima Enyinnaya George and Olusegun Rasak arrested in connection with a case of rape at Lekki area of Lagos has been released. On receipt of the report, the AIG in charge of Zone 2 , AIG Lawal Shehu ordered an immediate enquiries into the “report“!

    Rape culture in Nigeria thrives because Nigeria has shown us time and time again that it hates women. I have seen enough questions and statements made with the sole purpose of victim blaming – “why did she go clubbing?”, “she should have been at home reading her books”, When the real questions should be how could Don-Chima and Razak fester such an insidious thought and decide to execute it with such gall? Why is that people blame this girl for the horrendous ordeal that she has gone through? Does it ever occur to rape apologist that rape inflicts a certain indescribable trauma on the survivor that is only worsened when they are saddled with the burden of the shame and guilt meant for the perpetrators?

    Don Chima and Razak are glaring examples of what we mean when we say MEN ARE TRASH! Imagine knowing them for over 10 years, having a bond with them, going out with them countless times and then one day they decide that they have the right to drug, rape and record the act…what does that say to us as women? That we cannot trust our fathers,brothers, cousins or friends?

    I pray that the survivor of this crime seeks the professional counselling she needs, that she is surrounded with unconditional love to see her through this dark tunnel. Also, that no amount of money is thrown around to let these rapists go free, they must answer for their crimes!

    Nigeria wake up! Women please speak up! Men hold other men accountable!
