The screen shots are the thread file from @ice131Queen
on twitter (swipe right). Her name is Maryam Awaisu. She lead a campaign #arewametoomovement
. What you are about to read are from words of survivors of alleged (only till conviction) serial abuse of young girls in the north of Nigeria by the man whose picture in the last shot.
Disgracefully, Maryam was arrested in her office in Kaduna by men of the notorious SARS unit. Thankfully as a result of public outcry by young Nigerians & @amnesty
Maryam has now been released.
With Maryam's arrest &subsequent release I am even MORE CONFIDENT that Nigerias watershed #metoo
moment is only months away !!! I heard 2 foolish comedians say on @lagostalks
radio drivetime show last week that metoo will never happen in Nigeria. Their level of ignorance was only surpassed by their crass &misogynistic jokes. They laughed at those of us who advocate in this space, not knowing their roars only underlined their idiocy. Dem go soon #hearword
no be lie!
