Nigerian activist and fronline EndSARS campaigner, Rinu Oduala has been recognised by the United Nations in a campaign that promotes peace and equality.
The UN made Rinu the new face of its Peace, Dignity and Equality on a healthy planet campaign.
This comes in the wake of her active contributions during the EndSARS protest against police brutality and extrajudicial killings last year. A protest which was later shelved following the setting up of panels of inquiries into Special Anti-Robbery Squad, (SARS) activities.
The 300 level student of Lagos State University (LASU) had been a member of the Lagos state panel up until a week ago, when he pulled out due to reasons bordering on not willing to be part of a trial shrouded in duplicity.
Now, the vibrant lady has become an internationally celebrated face thanks to the UN.
Rinu, excited over the development, took to Twitter to state that it is heartwarming to be honoured by an international orgnisation like UN ata time that youths are struggling for their voices to be heard.
”I woke up being a face on @UN for peace, dignity and equality on a healthy planet.
At a time when Nigerian youths are at their lowest, struggling to make their voices heard & respected, this is really warming.”
