Toyin Salau, a 19-year-old lady of Nigerian origin, have been found dead days after she was declared missing in the city of Tallahassee, Florida, the United States.
According to the Tallahassee Police Department, Toyin, who spoke at Black Lives Matters protests in the city, was last seen June 6 near Wahnish Way and Orange Avenue, Tallahassee.
Salau was declared missing hours after she tweeted she was sexually assaulted. Toyin tweeted that a man molested her that morning around Park Avenue and Richview Road, Tallahassee, Florida
She said the man offered to give her a ride back to a church where she had sought “refuge” because of “unjust living conditions.”
“He came disguised as a man of God and ended up picking me up from nearby Saxon Street,” she tweeted. “I trusted the holy spirit to keep me safe.”
According to reports, the Tallahassee Community Action Agency conducted a search party on Wednesday night, starting at Bethel AME Church. The demonstrators searched for hours. They carried flashlights and asked for medics to join them in case she was hurt.
The agency has started a social media campaign sharing “Have you seen me?” fliers and photos of Salau.
Salau spoke at recent protests and carried signs pleading for justice in the wake of black lives lost.
