Former Nollywood actress, Victoria Inyama, has advised Nigerian women to dress appropriately to avoid getting raped. Over four thousand rape cases have been recorded across the country since the COVID-19 pandemic began in February this year.
Inyama in a video shared on her IG page, said it is obvious the Nigerian government isn’t ready to fix a penalty to rape crime and so to avoid being a victim of rape, ladies should endeavor to dress appropriately so they do not “trigger” the perpetrators of rape crimes.
She posted the video on her IG page and wrote
”Appropriate Dressing & Comportment
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” she wrote
