It appears that Ghanaians are gradually becoming more and more aware of the power and influence of social media as a tool for change. After successfully getting Nivea to pull down controversial billboards many deemed offensive, Ghana's social media space has now set its sights on an even bigger injustice.

Recent reports emerged that a child in the Central Region was defiled, and the mother later reported the issue to the local chief. Tragically, the perpetrator was later set free because the local traditional deities found him innocent of the act.

This issue has incensed several Ghanaian celebrities and - with Anita Erskine at the fore - prompted celebrities to adopt the #dosomething hashtag in order to get the attention of authorities to look into the gross injustice

Checkout what people are saying on social media about the issue:

Anita Erskine first cries foul...

Equal under the law...

KOD's cry all the way from Dubai...

Someone, anyone, please help...

Hope for justice...

Criminal acts...

Scott-free, no way...

Lesser gods for justice...

Speak against barbarism...

Straight to the highest office of the land...
