One early morning, in the serene and sleepy village of Amaekpu. There was commotion and pandemonium, women filled out in their large numbers bearing palm fronts and other leaves in demonstration against a certain man. The woman threaten to abandon their difference homes if their concern was not properly addressed.

The man at the middle of the chaos was an elderly native doctor who was believed to have super natural power and this provoke fear among the villagers. The old native doctors, decided to build his house directly adjacent to the village public female toilet since the village still practice OPEN DEFECATION. Women and girls of all works of life regularly visit there to answer the call of nature.

Unknowing to the innocent women who uses the toilet, the erotic native doctors mounted a secret camera in a way to have a complete view of the women while using the toilet. The clip became an object of sexual satisfaction between him and his amorous friends.

Trouble started when one of his friends got drunk and started revealing information to various women on the pattern of shaving of their private parts. The women in astonishment and embarrassment, demanded to know the source of his information, act of humiliation, the women reported the matter to the leadership of the village women organization. He was promptly summon

by the entire women and after an intense interrogation, he divulge the source of his information.

The women were overwhelmed by the suppose spiritual power of the native doctor and in awe, the pleaded with the men to intervene on their behalf. The mention of the native doctor name scare the men who kept on delaying the case and could not handle it well. In frustration, the women mobilized on that early morning and stormed the native doctors residence dropping in their thousand the palm fronts and other leaves in his premises. The women bravely gave the man three days ultimatum to appear before them and answer charges levied against him.

On the expiration of the three days ultimatum, the notorious witch doctor vehemently refused to appear before the women instead he insisted that they should come and clear the mess they dumped in his premises or faced unpleasant consequences .

In anger, the women in collaboration with women from other neighboring villages matched down for the finanal show down. On sighting the intimidating crowd, the abominable native doctor took to his heels

The uncontrollable crowd in the process brought down his building rubbish.

This is the power of collaboration. If all women will come together, hand in hand,all the unpleasant situation women are subject to will be taking care off

Amazing action taken by the women. You should tell them that an entire community of women is cheering them on! 

Is there any movement to create more private toilets for the women and girls? Rachael

This is a great story of women standing up and taking action.  The way in which this doctor violated their privacy is disgraceful, and it is inspiring to read how they took action when no one else would.
