The case of two men, who allegedly raped and filmed 23-year-old girl in Lekki has continued to generate reactions online from Nigerians.
This time around, popular Nigerian musician, Folarin Falana known as Falz, has been dragged by Nigerians into the case.
In a call for justice for the girl, some Nigerians on social media called on Falz known for singing about ills in the society to lend his voice to the issue.
Reports making the rounds had it that the suspects: Don-Chima Enyinnaya George and Olusegun Rasak arrested in connection with the case of rape at Lekki area of Lagos were released by the police.
However, the force in a press statement signed by CSP Dolapo Badmus, PRO Zone 2 debunked the reports saying the suspects were still in the police custody.
Meanwhile, Falz is yet to comment on the issue:
Some comments from Nigerians on Twitter by Daily Post:-
@Biisi96 “Is Falz the only musician in Nigeria? Since they are only doing this out of spite because the shoe he presented to everybody fit them and they wore it they won’t realize Falz actually has a song addressing rape. But let’s go off I guess.”
@Defnotyourmate “Agreed but since Falz is now a ‘moral activist’ what stops him from singing about this one too? People are singing about it, It just seems like a deliberate miss on his side.”
@Mbakutheking “Why are you dragging Falz. Seems like the transactional sex song really got to you guys deep. Meanwhile Falz has a song about rape and it’s called, ” Child of the world”.
@Octacore “So what happens to your great Linda Ikeji that’s covering this whole shit up? Y’all don’t just have sense at all. Falz that wasn’t even in the scenario of the rape has been dragged over something he’s addressed.”
@PastorOla “Two men raped a young women. The said young woman’s brother got them arrested. They were later released by police and then the father of one of the rapists arrested the victims brother.
“But the thing giving your wcw headache in this story is Falz not singing about rape.”
@SheisBoki “Falz, where are you when you are needed? The musical Messiah for social justice?
