Urgent Call for Justice: Rhoda Jatau's Story
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.“
(South African Cleric and Nobel Laureate)
Dear Active Citizen,
In the pursuit of justice, we bring you a poignant tale that demands our collective attention and action.
Rhoda Jatau: A Mother Seeking Justice
Rhoda Jatau, a devoted mother of five, finds herself ensnared in a web of injustice. Arrested on 'blasphemy' charges in Bauchi State, her only crime was condemning the brutal murder of Deborah Yakubu, a college student in Sokoto State. The irony is stark: the mob that committed the crime roams freely, while Rhoda faces incarceration.
A Nation's Anguish
As citizens, this should not sit well with us. The very essence of justice is compromised when those who speak against atrocities are silenced, while perpetrators go unpunished. Rhoda's story is a stark reminder that our nation's foundations are at stake.
Mobilize for Rhoda's Release
It is time for collective action. We implore you to join us in pressuring your elected representatives at the National Assembly to stand up for Rhoda and uphold justice.
Visit www.shineyoureye.org to find their contact details.
Simultaneously, let's amplify the public pressure to ensure justice prevails. Share Rhoda's story on your social media platforms to create a unified voice demanding justice.
Rhoda's story is a call to action, a call for each of us to be the voice she needs. Together, let's advocate for justice, safeguard our nation's values, and ensure that no one faces persecution for expressing their beliefs.
