Justice for Barakat trends as 18-year-old is murdered at home in Ibadan

A young woman was murdered on Monday, June 1, in her home in Ibadan and Twitter users are calling for justice for her.

”Now, these times are not funny.
Bello Barakat has fallen too. A student of IAR&T Oluyole, Ìbàdàn. I gathered their home was attacked yesterday afternoon by supposed robbers who tried to finish on a romp.

Barakat resisted their attempt to rape her and she was stabbed to death. We hope and pray that the perpetrators of this evil will be fished out.

The girls are getting more endangered. The society must do something. I am not just worried because I am a father to 19 year old student too, but I am really concerned because girls and women deserve better. They deserve respect and protection from the society. They are not objects for use in carnality.

I think it is time to start a new campaign to mould the boy child. The new generation of boys seem to be posing much danger to the advocacies for the girl child over time.

Late Barakat

It is my earnest prayers that the killers of #Barakat and #Uwa and every unreported assaults and deaths be brought to justice.”
