Victims of rape to receive more help in hospitals

-

- Advertisment -

The Counseling Ambassadors Organisation, a non governmental organization, has stressed the need for professional counselors in hospitals so as to promptly attend to victims of rape and other sexual abuses.

Its founder, Iyabo Obasa, who made this known while speaking at a one day seminar tagged “Let’s talk it and Pray It”, said the first thing rape destroys was trust, since most rape incidents were perpetrated by those close to the victims.

Obasa, a retired Permanent Secretary in Lagos State Civil Service, said there was therefore the need for victims to find succor in hospital personnel when they were brought in for medical attention.

Also, a Professor in the Department of Education University of Lagos, Cecilia Oladapo, urged parents to spend more time with their wards and be ready to give answers to questions raised by their wards.

Executive Director of Socio-Economic Right Accountability Project, SERAP, Adetokunbo Mumuni, called for strict enforcement of the existing status on rape, while calling for the empowerment of the police to ensure effective implementation of the law as it relates to rape and other sexual abuses.
