Barakat was just 18. She was fully clothed and in HER house. Y’all idiots should come & tell us how she “asked” for it. Cause y’all were still asking why Uwa went to church to read. So tell us what Barakat should NOT have done to avoid being raped and KILLED #JusticeForBarakat

Nowhere is safe! This is scary!
Not even in the comfort of your abode or your family house.
Regardless of what you’re wearing, hijab or crop top.
We can only pray for Gods divine protection.#justiceforbarakat #JusticeForUwa #JusticeForTina
