Not Just a Girl

Girl child education happens to be the most least regarded factor In the core northern part of Nigeria. Alhaji Musa has two daughter, Maryam and hadiza and a beautiful wife Fatima. Alhaji Musa is strongly against the idea of sending his daughters to school because he sees it as a waste of money, all he wants to do is marry his daughters off. Fatima stood with grit and fights for her daughters at any given point that therefore victimized her to domestic violence as she gets beaten by her husband on regular basis.
Fatima has been through a lot especially the news of her daughter Hadiza being raped after her husband forced her to go hawking during school hours and also when she found out that her husband is sleeping with her daughter Maryam.
This has been going on for long until Fatima came across Barrister Calista at a point she wanted to commit suicide. Barrister Calista shared in her story and tried to help her taste the sweetness of justice by suing Alhaji Musa to the court but the corrupt system denied that.
But barrister calista came up with a new idea of how to bring Alhaji Musa to book.
