Di’Ja draws attention to the age of consent in Nigeria

Mavin records singer, Di’Ja has called the attention of many to the age of consent in Nigeria which is set at 11.

Sharing a screenshot of a Google result on Instagram, Di’Ja cited the advancements that Nigeria and Nigerians have achieved but asked that attention be paid to some key areas, one of which is child marriage and consent.

According to the law, “Individuals aged 10 or younger in Nigeria are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape or the equivalent local law. The Nigeria statutory rape law is violated when an individual has consensual sexual contact with a person under age 11.”

Di’Ja wrote, “Just going to drop this here and hear your thoughts …. We have come a long way, we have advanced beyond comprehension in a short amount of time, music, lifestyle, agriculture and are still growing. That being said there are some areas I believe needs more attention and this is one of them. 
There are many ways to go around this issue but the best one is to go through it… This isn’t a fight against religion, tribe, gender but a redirection of our energies and thought processes to protect the ones that birth your nation. If children become psychologically, physically and emotionally damaged before a certain age all you will have are adults with suppressed memories of abuse, which lead to psychological mind ware-fare.. #saveme

The easiest way to destroy any nation is by creating fear rather than respect.

The child of today isn’t the child of yesteryears
