Many Nigerians have taken to Twitter to speak against rape, rape culture and to call for justice for the victims.
Sharing his story; Festus recalled how he left the army after his mum visited him and a neighbour broke in, raped and stabbed his mum.
“Rape is a disgusting thing.
When I was a soldier serving in 146 battalion. My mum visited me, brought foodstuffs, cooked all sorts of food and served my neighbours (soldiers).
At 6pm, I left for my duty. My neighbour broke into the ceiling and gained entry into my apartment.
“Stabbed my mum twice at the back and raped her. My mum was a mess and almost took her own life. I didn’t forgive myself until I left the army.
“When you plan of raping anyone, you plan to destroy them.
Say No to Rape.”
