A woman known as Oluwasimbo Ogundipe, has called out Nigerian Police, explaining how she was once arrested and labelled as a prostitute when she was in a club with friends to celebrate a birthday party.
Oluwasimbo Ogundipe revealed on Twitter that the police raids on clubs in Abuja has been going on for a while now and she’s fallen victim too. While reacting to a post by CNN regarding accusations of rape and extortion of women arrested by police during a raid in Abuja nightclubs.
She went on to encourage Nigerians to speak up and condemn these actions.
Unfortunately these raids have been ungoing for a long time. I have even been a victim. Went out to celebrate a friends birthday and boom was arrested and tagged prostitute. The unfortunate part is our society encourages these acts, because we teach our men and women that
women are weak and especially the single ones. That a spinster is less deserving of respect than her married counterparts, that a successful woman must have a “sugar daddy ” as though wealth was only created for men, that if a woman dresses a certain way and gets raped then
it must be her fault, we never hold men accountable for their actions and we constantly make stupid excuses for their nonchalant behaviors by attributing such behaviors to the genitalia, like that’s a reason to be stupid. These behaviors are reinforced at home, social gatherings
So please let’s address these issues not only in the courts but also in our society. Unfortunately these older generations might be a lost cause but we have a whole new generation of men watching and learning the same lessons. Let’s stop the circle.

“Just like HIV, coronavirus may never go away” – WHO chief says
As people around the world wonder when the coronavirus might go away, a World Health Organization (WHO) chief says there is every chance the virus might not disappear, just like HIV.
The World Health Organization warned Wednesday that the new virus, which has infected 4.3 million people worldwide, may become endemic, just like the HIV virus, and that people may have to learn to live with it.
HIV/AIDS was first clinically observed in 1981 in the United States and almost 40 years after, no vaccine or cure has been developed for the virus which has so far killed nearly a million people.
Mike Ryan, the Executive director of the World Health Organization health emergency program, made this known while speaking in an online briefing today May 13.
He said the virus may just become one of the known viruses that kills people annually around the world.
“This virus just may become another endemic virus in our communities and this virus may never go away. HIV hasn’t gone away. I’m not comparing the two diseases but I think it is important that we’re realistic. I don’t think anyone can predict when or if this disease will disappear.
I think there are no promises in this and there are no dates. This disease may settle into a long problem, or it may not be” Ryan said
About 100 organizations worldwide are working on developing a coronavirus vaccine. Even if they find one that works, containing the virus will take a “massive effort,” the WHO official said.
Meanwhile, the California-based Gilead drug company has reached agreements with several companies to make its antiviral drug Veklury, the brand name of remdesivir, available in 127 countries to help treat COVID-19.
