Former Nigerian actress, Victoria Inyama, has urged women to dress properly to avoid getting raped. Over four thousand rape incidents have been reported across the country since the COVID-19 pandemic began in February this year.
The actress via her verified IG page to reveal how obvious the Nigerian government is not ready to fix a penalty to the increasing rape crime and so to avoid being a victim, ladies should endeavour to dress properly so they do not “trigger” the perpetrators of rape crimes.
”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”
