#enoughisenough. Justice is not just ice. Stop throwing the cases and the victims into the freezers until they become ice. We can't keep burying our children because those who are supposed to be protecting us are busy questioning and blaming the victims. When those who stood up and demanded justice is counted. Will you be numbered? What will your number be known for? @actionaidnigeria #justiceforallrapevictims #justicenow
