This #JusticeForComfortBenjamin is anoda very heartbreaking 💔 story..Is it a crime to be a young female in Nigeria. With all the brothels around, how can anyone in his right senses rape a girl. Rapists surely DO NOT deserve any form of mercy.

Nobody deserves to die the type of death Comfort experienced. The Police are demanding money to do their jobs. They failed to protect her in her lifetime and still want to cause her family additional pain. This is wickedness and we must call it out. #JusticeForComfortBenjamin pic.twitter.com/NjsbejXcjiAdvertisement
