She had just been admitted to the University of Benin to study microbiology. She was 22. Uwa’s dream of becoming a nurse has now been dashed by rapists and murders. All she wanted to do was read. When will girls feel safe again? #JusticeForUwa pic.twitter.com/fslvHzgLb8

Nigerian Musician Djinee revealed in a tweet that parents have failed in the upbearing of the male child to the detriment of the female gender.
Uwa’s story breaks me. We all have to admit that our parents have failed woefully in the raising of the male child. Concentrating too much on the conduct of the female child when it’s actually the males who have the higher propensity to do evil! #JusticeForUwa

Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy stood with a placard with the words “Say No To R*pe” stating that rapists deserve to die.
“Saw a thread on Twitter, different ladies writing about their traumatic r*pe experiences. I can’t begin to imagine how these women feel.
The pain they suffered and are suffering mentally every day. It is so heartbreaking. I believe every r*pist deserves to die.
If you are a r*pist out there and you see this, you should be ashamed of yourself and I want you to know that one day you will pay for your barbaric crimes. This goes to r*pe apologists too and those that know a r*pist and is protecting them. SHAME.” He wrote
