Former Nollywood actress, Victoria Inyama, has advised Nigerian ladies to dress properly to avoid getting raped.
It has been reported that 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 she shared on her Instagram page, said it is obvious the Nigerian government is not ready to fix a penalty for rape, advising ladies to avoid being a victim of rape.
She also told ladies to endeavor to dress appropriately, so they do not trigger perpetrators of rape crimes.
“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.
