A 19-year-old Nigerian-American
Black Lives Matter protester, Oluwatoyin Salau, has been found dead in Tallahassee, Florida.
This is happening days after she tweeted on being sexually molested.
In lime with reports from the Police Department, she was last seen on June 6, 2020, at a demonstration in the Tallahassee area.
Hours prior to being reported missing, Toyin tweeted that she had been molested by a man while looking for a place to stay after the demonstration, media reports revealed.
She added that she had called the authorities to report what had happened.
“Anyways I was molested in Tallahassee, Florida by a black man this morning at 5:30 on Richview and Park Ave. The man offered to give me a ride to find someplace to sleep and recollect my belongings from a church I refuged to a couple of days back to escape unjust living conditions.” Oluwatoyin tweeted.
Before her death, the teenager had emerged as a leading voice in recent protests throughout the area.
It is apt to note that the Black Lives Matter protest started following the death of an African-American man killed by a Minneapolis police officer.
