Her head was bleeding after it was bashed with a fire extinguisher by unknown men who also raped her.
She later gave up the ghost after she was rushed to a hospital for attention.
Djinee who took to Twitter in reaction stated that parents are to blame for the way make children have turned out.
Djinee wrote: “Uwa’s story breaks me. We all have to admit that our parents have failed woefully in the raising of the male child. Concentrating too much on the conduct of the female child when it’s actually the males who have the higher propensity to do evil! #JusticeForUwa
“We have to understand how a system (be it parenting, legal, cultural or societal) increases the TENDENCY of a crime happening to a particular gender, race, ethnicity or religious belief more than the other(s). Most times you’ll find your root cause there.
“I’m sorry. I have sisters and cousins and I fear for them daily. One of my sisters was the reason I moved to a secure gated community after an incident, costing me ×5 in expenses. Even at that, I still worry.
“Today it is Uwa. Y’day it was someone else. 2moro it might be som1 we know. A friend who was gangraped in the past is living with HIV today. There is no way Uwa’s sad incident won’t bring up the fact that our women are an endangered gender. You cant isolate crime from culture.
