A Twitter user has busted Nigerian feminist and web developer Ire Aderinokun for lying that she designed the logo of the Nigerian Feminist Coalition which was widely used during the #EndSARS protests in Nigeria.
In a tweet she made on October 23, Ire Aderinokun had claimed that she designed the logo in “less than 30 minutes” and “under so much pressure.”
“On another note, it was honestly so heartwarming to see how this logo I designed in less than 30 minutes and under so much pressure became such a powerful symbol in the movement.”
She added in the tweet:
“It was hilarious that misogynists thought the female symbol in it was hidden.”
It was later found that the said logo has been on Google for many years.
Twitter user @AimThaMachine_ who uncovered Ms Aderinokun’s lie wrote:
“Lol, but you came out here and LIED that you designed this logo by yourself under so much stress in 30 minutes. Lol, Logo that has been on Google since.”
