Brussels announced that it will rename a street in honor of a Nigerian sex worker who was murdered. The plan is part of a larger campaign to give more recognition to women in Belgium.

The Belgian capital city council said the street will be named after Eunice Osayande, who was stabbed to death by a client in June 2018.

Lured by the promise of a job and a better future in Europe, Osayande moved to Brussels in 2016.

She came to the Old Continent thinking that the men who had invited her were agents who would make her a movie star.
