Controversial Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz The Bahd Guy has called for nationwide protests over the rape and death of an undergraduate of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Vera Omozuwa on Sunday which allegedly took place inside an RCCG parish.

His tweet read: “It is so exhausting to see injustice continue to thrive time after time. Every time we say NOT AGAIN, and then there is a new story. Enough is enough. It’s too disheartening.
“Justice must be served for the innocent souls we keep on losing. #JusticeForTina #JusticeForUwa.”
Falz called on Nigerians to become fearless and move out into the streets, adding that siting at home and clamoring for justice on social media is not enough.

“It’s not enough to sit in our houses and post on socials. Justice must be served,” Falz added.
