CSBS News Desk

Woman Rights and Health Project (WRAHP), a non-governmental organisation, has organised training for community leaders and police officers in Ejgbo, Egbe-Idimu and Ikotun-Igando Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) on proper reporting and documentation of human rights issues.

It’s founder, Mrs Bose Ironsi, said the event was designed in a question and answer format for residents to remove the fear of the police from their minds knowing that they can walk up to them at anytime.

“The community leaders were able to speak their minds to the officers and out aim was achieved. We recorded an increase in understanding between the police and the community.

“Some of the questions asked included: “If there is an issue on rape between a couple and it is reported to the police, will it be handled as a human rights matter or family abuse?

“The police replied that it will be handled as a human rights matter and not a family matter, because “rape is rape, whether it is conjugal rape or any other kind of rape; however the police can help to mediate and solve it peacefully between them.”

“In a case of reported child abuse, can the police allow the parent or family members to settle quarrel by themselves?”

“The answer was no. The crime will be handled by the police and not by the family, because any persecutor irrespective of the crime charge against him or her must face the law.”
