Oby Ezekwesili, Funmi Iyanda, Abike Dabiri & Other Influential Women Show Support For Sugabelly



For a couple of days now, twitter has been abuzz since Sugabelly, a blogger and illustrator came out to accuse the son of late governorship candidate of Kogi State, Audu Mustapha and his friends of serial rape.

It started with a series of tweets but she later wrote a blog post about it.

The accused, Mustapha Audu released a few screenshots of old mails sent by Sugabelly and also granted an interview to an online news site where he basically side-stepped key questions on the matter.

There has been mixed reactions from different people. Some are surprising, some are disappointing but there are some that would restore your faith in humanity.

Some influential women have also showed support for Sugabelly, see a few below;


Aisha Yesufu – A human rights activist and key fighter in the Chibok girls case

Molara Wood – a seasoned Writer and journalist

Lola Shoneyin – Director, Ake Arts and Book Festival and founder of Book Buzz Foundation

Kemi Adetiba – Producer, director and Vlogger

Abike Dabiri Arewa

A few people have come out to say that her case would not be different from several cases of rape that is not well handled in Nigeria. But one thing is certain however, her coming out has empowered more women to speak out about their personal experiences.
