Every day we read reports of women being raped, or sexually assaulted or beaten. It’s a continuous tale, one that comes with sorrow for lives that could be saved.
The dreams and future of an Aspiring 20year old girl Ajila Seun has been cut short after been raped and stabbed to death in Akure, Ondo state.
Details surrounding her death is still a bit sketchy but reports says she was raped and stabbed to death right inside her Mother’s house, while visiting.

Loved ones and friends are now calling on the appropriate authorities to take charge of the case, as her mom is currently traumatized.
While social media has continued to highlight the stories that were hitherto hidden, there remains an increasingly high number of lives lost due to violence against women. Women are often killed by their fathers, boyfriends or husbands. We read reports of women being stabbed after domestic squabbles. It is even worse because sometimes there is never justice for the victims.
Cultural expectations to forgive and forget adds to the absence of consequences for the perpetrators, and this too, has to stop.
For people who ask why there’s an emphasis on women’s rights being human rights, it is because of the preponderance of situations where women are killed – with no recourse for justice.
