Hollywood actor John Boyega has joined the list of people across the world mourning Toyin Salau, who was found dead after she tweeted about her sexual assault.
If you recall the 19-year-old Tallahassee, Florida-based Black Lives Matter activist of Nigerian origin had taken to Twitter to share the story of a man that offered her a free ride, but later assaulted her sexually.
“He came disguised as a man of God and ended up picking me up from nearby Saxon Street. I trusted the holy spirit to keep me safe.”
She then went further to give detailed description of his appearance:
“Mid 40’s lives in a gray painted duplex apartment-style house drives a white clean Silverado Chevrolet truck.”
Shortly after, Salau went missing. She was last seen on June 6.
The Tallahassee Police Department has since said that she was found dead. And the news stirred heated reactions on social media, with many people urging the police to seek out the man she described.
Now, John Boyega has joined in mourning her.
“Been trying to even find the words and there’s none. She died unprotected. Things like this just hurts,” he tweeted.
