Rape Obscene

Lessons from the tragic story of Izu, a young man who was falsely accused of rape on Twitter

Tragic – just tragic. My heart broke to hear of the story of Izuchukwu Madubueze, an up and coming fashion designer and businessman.

Izu, as he was fondly called, is reported to have built a thriving fashion business for himself at a very young age. He grew his business from sewing in his house to owning a sizeable warehouse stocked with fashion items which he sold on his online store.

Earlier this month, the young man was accused of rape by one Nani, who has since locked and deleted her Twitter account.

As expected, he became the victim of lynching and bashing by an unforgiving and bloodthirsty Twitter mob.

Sadly, unable to bear the pressure and the brutality of the defamation, Izu committed suicide a few days ago.

His last tweet sent chills down my spine:

Here are some reactions and lessons to learn from heartbroken Twitter users across the country:

Rest in peace, Izuchukwu Madubueze. May his life and story never be forgotten.
