Good day, it is the midweek. The Easter holiday had the desired effect, we hope? We’re back at work and we have something to share….Don’t forget to use the share buttons at the bottom of the screen…a lovely day ahead.
1.) Boko Haram sect, Non- Muslims?
Following the terrible news of the abduction of the schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, an Islamic women group in Ilorin, Kwara State came out to protest and publicly condemned the act of the Boko Haram sect citing that members of the sect are not genuine Muslims. Then, you ask yourself, what really does the action of the sect proclaim and if they have any form of religious conscience.

2.) Fight for Justice against Women Abuse.
There needs to be a surge for the fight of injustice against women in our Country. It has become that the officials who are meant to protect its citizens are the ones dishing out such brutality. About four months ago, a young 22 year old girl was beaten with brute force by a Nigerian Mobile Police member. You can find details of the assault here: http://www.punchng.com/metro-plus/victim-identifies-drunken-mopol-among-suspects/
A young activist is helping the victim and her family push for justice. Details of that will be found here: http://www.channelstv.com/2014/04/22/victim-of-police-assault-pushes-for-justice/
More individuals should lend their voices and action in pushing for justice against child and women abuse and not just watch the misfortune around us.
3.) Baby Factory victims in Ogun State to reconcile with their families.
Eight pregnant women ranging between 16 to 21 years old were said to be rescued last month from a baby factory located at Sebajo Crescent, Akute. This was after police received information that main suspect, Angela Chidozie, was harboring pregnant juveniles at her home.
The Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development in Ogun State is said to be communicating with Abia, Imo and Akwa Ibom State governments on how the rescued victims can be reunited with their families.
