Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called for justice over the death of Vera Omozuwa, a 100-level microbiology student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Edo state.
At about the same time, Tina Ezekwe, a 16-year-old girl, was killed by strayed after a police officer fired shots in a bid to apprehend a bus driver at the Iyana-Oworo area of Lagos.
The student’s death comes weeks after Jennifer, an 18-year-old girl, was allegedly gang raped by his five friends in Kaduna state.
The deaths of Nigerian females have triggered protests on social media.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Tinubu also condemned the killings, saying such violence is inexcusable.
He said the incidents are parts of the “pain, hurt and stigma of gender-based violence and abuse” suffered by Nigerian women and young girls.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos, said “enough is enough”, adding that justice should be served to all victims of gender-based violence
