"Stop Touching Us" Campaigners Assaulted By Yaba Traders (Pics, Videos) by tendingNews: 12:38am On Dec 16, 2018
#MarketMarchYaba: A group of beautiful young ladies, feminists stormed Yaba market to create awareness and promote "Stop Touching Us" "Don't touch us, you don't own our bodies, stop harassing us" campaign against sexual assault and harassment.

But the ladies were Harassed, embarrassed and insulted by some guys there. They called them names such as 'ashawo' 'lesbians' 'prostitutes'.

One one the "Stop Touching Us" campaigners, Chi
Amaka who is a Production Manager & a feminist narrated their bad experience at the Yaba market doing their campaign outing.

Read the story as narrated by Chi Amaka, a feminist who shared the videos.

"An interesting day today guys. I was at the #MarketMarchYaba and just because we said "stop touching us", they booed us, called us prostitutes, lesbians and jobless people. They also threw pure water at us, one landed right on my chest. A guy even touched me TWICE!!!

Nothing to see here at all, just being called ashawo . I love it when men try to prove they are not trash by you know being TRASH. #MarketMarchYaba

I forgot this part. "How dare you say no to harassment? Holy Ghooooost fire"


They said a lot of things I've seen here from "educated men".

If you don't want us touch you dress well.
Who are you that we shouldn't touch you.
If you don't want us to touch you don't come here.
You should be fighting for more important things (this made me laugh)..

You go marry yourself?
You sef don't touch us (street whataboutism)
You no dey Bleep?
I get your type for house
You no even fine.
#MarketMarchYaba

"Ashawo, they no dey work"


Another "Stop Touching Us" campaigner, Moromoke @mo_romoke recounts their ordeal too. She wrote:

"#MarketMarchYaba was a success! The reaction was unexpected for me. Like the Yaba boys threw water and stones at us, it was as if we unleashed the beast in them and today I saw the physical demonstration of mysogyny, they got aggressive and resorted to physical abuse."

Another campaigner, Lisa @LisaOnyimonyi said:

" And what we've learned today from this march is:
1. Those men feel entitled to touch a woman.
2. They won't take responsibility for their actions.
3. They hate women. Clearly.
4. They're angry women are finally speaking up against the harassment.
#MarketMarchYaba"

Smh,Anyway it's the pioneers of any movement that gets it rough. It's just plain stupidity trying out oyinbo trends in a country where the law doesn't even favour you as a normal citizen. Imagine LGBTs parading oshodi,boys would just look them waka abi? Not to mention that less than 2% of them really know the true form of feminism. Especially the nonsense displayed about on NL

How can a group of women go and meet working people and start shouting don't touch us, that's an insult of the highest order, it's like telling the men they're rapist, women and the stupid things they do.

Even tho this is a good cause, the delivery doesn't seem to be right. You don't expect those mostly uneducated traders to take you seriously.

This has got to be the dumbest protest ever!!!

What do this dimwitted lots aim to achieve, trying to incite people going about their businesses, to think they were chanting "Yaba boys stop touching us"

And those guys were just jesting, it's like going to the a bar and chanting "drunkards leave our daughters alone"

Too much holywood has caused this,

Quite frankky I actually wouldnt touch this not so good looking ladies even if I'm paid to.


Modified:
I even tried engaging one of them in a conversation, but they lack any sense of coherence, and are just very bitter, abusive and disrespectful ladies.

No thanks to the constant disrespectful and false portrayal of men as predators and women as victims by the media.

This is Nigeria where nothing works from A-Z.

Where i was if you touch a woman without her consent you paid 1million Naria equivalent and further face jail term.

There is no respect for women in Nigeria.
A lawless country from the top to bottom.

They better take this campaign to the North, cus here in the south women are treated with utmost respect compare to North where they are only useful during 'other room' activities.

Nigerian (female) feminists are androphobes.

Like, they don't know what feminism entails.

It hurts to the bone when they hurl insults at men all in the name of campaign.

Chimamanda is a sensible one though.

if so, women will be begging men to touch them in Nigeria. But how comes all our women married to wealthy men in Nigeria are so humble and almost voiceless.

Only the hungry or single ones are engaging in 'Notice me' mission.

Seriously, i feel bad when those Yaba guys harass girls all in the name of "come buy market, select your own"

I think the police should start arresting them...i heard these guys use charms to touch unsuspecting ladies.

You can't harass someone because you want them to buy your stuff, no be by force.

Ladies should start speaking up against this and watch security operatives swing into action...arrest a bunch of them and watch this nonesense stop.
