She had just gotten home after a long day at the office, her mind was in a clutter, her relationship had just ended because she refused to have #sex before marriage.

She could feel her chest tighten everytime she thought about him.

She still loved him deeply.

As she stepped into her apartment, #phcn struck, the heat built up so fast she dove into the bathroom, relaxing only when the cold shower drenched her.

She could hear her phone ringing but she wasn't about to interrupt the only peaceful moment she had experienced today.

When she was done, she wiped herself dry, picked up her phone & saw it was a missed call from him, her heart lurched again, her mouth went dry, her whole body screamed in desperate need of his company, why was this no-sex thing such an issue, she mulled.

Should she give in?

His call came through again as she stared at the phone.

"Meet me at the pub down the road, lets talk about this over drinks and suya, I really miss you", his words washed over her as she picked up the call.

She threw on her clothes in excitement

Her heart was thumping, she loved him so much she would do anything to never lose him again.

As she turned the corner to the pub close to her house, wearing her Jean shorts, the t-shirt he got for her and a hat, strong rough hands grabbed her, dragging her to a bus.

She suddenly became aware of her surroundings, saw a crowd of #policemen, trucks and buses filled with other #girls, she screamed, demanding to know what was going on, the response she got was a slap across the face that temporarily blinded her as the word "ashewo" followed.

Her phone was seized by someone she didn't know, she was already mute and numb as every move she made to fight back led to more and harder #slaps.

The night was a blur, #clubs, #pubs and #lounges were being raided and alleged #prostitutes were being arrested.

She was not allowed to call anyone, she and very many others were exhausted from being beaten and moved from place to place through the night, then they were all searched, those who had 5k and above were set free while the rest of them remained.

When she was searched & only her house keys and 1k was found, her captor offered a deal, to either produce 5k on the spot or pay for her release with sex.


No way!!!

She didn't have the money, she didn't believe she had to pay for her release when she was innocent.

Now, here she lay, on her bed, unable to go to work, unable to face the world, unable to take her calls, her mind filled with thoughts of #suicide.

Her refusal had angered her captor who then called two others, they beat and #raped her using #purewater nylons as condoms.

After they had their fill, they took her in a car & dropped her off close to her home, during the drive, they kept making fun of her, saying how funny it was that she looked like an ashewo, but she was a #virgin.

Her phone just rang again, she saw it was a call from him.

How could she pick up his call, what would she say.
How do you get justice against the supposed custodians of #justice?.

How would she face her #Abuja, the society, her mother, her friends.

She got up from the bed, picked up a bottle of SNIPER & walked into her bathroom.
