Former Nollywood actress, Victoria Inyama has taken to her Instagram page to urge women to dress decently to avoid getting raped.
It should be recalled that amid the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown over four thousand rape incidents have been reported across the country
The former actress wrote;
It’s obvious to me that the Nigerian government is not really ready to put a fixed penalty to Rape and so l beg my ladies (minus the minors or aged victims) to plsssss dress in appropriate clothing so as to reduce the trigger for the perpetrators……A lot of these Perpetrators have underlying mental health issues & being around them in certain clothing is a trigger…..sadly the victim still gets to be shamed & ridiculed, so since this government is Not ready to do much, it would be wise to safeguard yourself.
Yes it’s not about the dressing some will say & compare with Europe & America but remember they take Rape cases seriously unlike Nigerian…..Think about it”
