    hi Peju. Great work. I like your stories! Sad story though. Thanks for bringing this to the fore. I imagine you come across stories like this often due to the nature of your job. I have two observations: (1) It might be useful for you to have information at your fingertips to provide to such survivors. I will include my email here and I can be reached privately to link you with such. Alternatively, the Lagos State DSVRT (https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwid4Kmvy5zrAhUaoHIEHZ4kA08QFjAAegQIARAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dsvrtlagos.org%2F&usg=AOvVaw3pTBXMJxmzxVbDlAnW-D32) can be contacted for such linkage or information. (2) I was wondering if her real name is Chinwe. If so, do you think it is worth considering not giving out the name of a survivor? Many times we put the media attention on the survivor and this often results in further stigmatisation especially in the future. In this case, I assume the perpetrators names are not known to you because the encounter was not planned. Considering having a pseudo name for the survivor will be a better choice. Thank you.
