A couple of days ago, a 5-year-old girl in Sierra Leone was reported dead.
A copy of her post mortem report which was leaked on social media suggests the little girl was raped multiple times before he was killed.
This sparked a protest on the streets of Freetown on Monday leading to the arrest of some of the protesters.
According to police they have detained the prime suspect who happens to be the girl’s relative and one accomplice.
The father of little Kadijah has spoken. While in in tears he said “my daughter died because of her gender”.
There’ll be no more princess dresses for 5 y/o Kadijah Saccoh because she was brutally raped & murdered in my home country of #SierraLeone a few days ago. Her weeping father said to me earlier “MY DAUGHTER DIED BECAUSE OF HER GENDER.” The #rapeculture must end #justiceforkadijah pic.twitter.com/cUfuyWjhaa
