The walk was a sequel to the alleged recent killing of women in some hotels in Port Harcourt. With the dress code, ‘All Black’ which symbolises fear, mystery, death, evil, and aggression, authority, rebellion among other things, the groups came out en masse to register their grievances in the way to fish out the serial killers in the state.
From the premises of the Nigerian Union of Journalist, NUJ at Moscow Road, Port Harcourt where the walk kicked off, the female groups in their numbers went around the city with different inscriptions including “the serial killers who called a woman prostitute should apologize. ” We demand justice and for those victims who have been killed. “We are not saved anymore”, among other things.
