Missing 19yr Old Nigerian Activist, Oluwatoyin Salau Found Dead

Oluwatoyin was last seen on June 6th, in Tallahassee. Before she went missing, she was actively involved in the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests.

She was found dead on Saturday night, more than a week after a manhunt was initiated to find her. Her family confirmed her dead body was one of the two bodies found by the Talhasasse police on Saturday.

 

The same day she went missing, Toyin wrote a thread on twitter detailing how she was molested by a “man of God” who offered to give her refuge. According to her, the man had “offered her a ride back to the church” she had sort refuge from due to “unjust living with conditions”.

Speaking to Democrat Tallahassee, her friend Deyana Hemphill described late Toyin as a light in a dark room. “Toyin was very passionate,” said Hemphill. “She was very vocal she was very loving, very spiritual, very caring.
“Toyin she was like a light in a dark room. That was Toyin.”

 

While she was alive, Salau with a speaker would call out the names of people who’d died from racial injustice.“I don’t want their names gone in vain,” Salau said during one protest in front of the Tallahassee Police Department last month.

 

Deyana Hemphill, 22 also wrote on Twitter alleging that Oluwatoyin’s brother was molesting her and was the reason she fled her home for the church she was living before she died.

At this point, the Tahalasse police department is yet to confirm her death or update her missing person profile.
