Nigerians have taken to social media once again to demand justice for Miss Bello Barakat, a student of the Institute Of Agriculture in Ibadan, who was stabbed to death after refusing to be raped in her home in Oyo State.
This is coming in the wake of a 22-year-old microbiology student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Uwa Omozuwa, who was brutally raped and murdered by unknown assailants while reading her books inside RCCG church in Benin city.
While the death of Miss Omozuwa is still being investigated by the police oas ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari, another female student identified as Bello Barakat has fallen too.
A Facebook user, Tunji Olatunji, who shared the sad news on his page, said Miss Barakat was in her home when some supposed robbers attacked and stabbed her to death while she was resisting their rape attempt. See his post below:

good morning. another girl has been raped and killed. her name is Barakat Bello. she was in her HOME. All you people that like to give excuses for rape, what excuse are you going to give for a hijabi that was raped and murdered in her own home? #JusticeForBarakat

Barakat was just 18. She was fully clothed and in HER house. Y’all idiots should come & tell us how she “asked” for it. Cause y’all were still asking why Uwa went to church to read. So tell us what Barakat should NOT have done to avoid being raped and KILLED #JusticeForBarakat

"What were you wearing?" – she was a hijabi.
"Why did you go there?" – she was around her father's house
"Why did you go to somewhere you don't know?" – she was in her neighbourhood
Yet she was raped & murdered! When you rationalize rape, you empower rapists #justiceforbarakat

While we were expressing shock and anger over the rape and murder of Uwa in Benin, this lady was raped and murdered in Ibadan last night.
