DEOLA AKINREMI: Seeking Justice for Ejigbo Sodomy Victims

Next month, it will be exactly one year since two women were dehumanised in Ejigbo Local Council Development Area of Lagos State by a group of men who sodomised them for alleged theft.  A few days after the incidence, one of the victims died without justice.  Adeola Akinremi visited the neighbourhood where the barbaric act took place and writes about efforts to get justice for the victims
