Nigerians Say Enough to Violence Against Women

Nigerians Say Enough to Violence Against Women

On Wednesday, October 5, 2011, Enough is Enough Nigeria, Project Alert, Rubies Ink, Delta Women, National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) along with several other civil society organizations and individuals will walk in several cities around Nigeria to raise awareness about violence against women in Nigeria, and in particular, demand action on the gang-rape of a young lady by five young men alleged to be students of Abia State University (ABSU).

The walk will take place in the following cities:

  • Abia: Walk will commence at the Okpara square in Umuahia, Abia state and conclude at the state house.
  • Lagos: Protest will hold at the Abia State Liaison Office Plot 122B, Ahamadu Bello Way in Victoria Island, Lagos.
  • Abuja : Protesters will converge at The Eagle Square

Since news of this gang-rape came to light, many Nigerians have weighed in on the matter, including the Honourable Minister of Youth Development, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi. A statement from his office stated, “The Honourable Minister views the behavior of the perpetrators as decadent and barbaric. Mallam Abdullahi therefore calls on the University authorities and relevant security agencies to step up action to ensure that the heartless and wicked perpetrators are arrested and prosecuted.”

The Abia State Governor, Dr T.A Orji and the ABSU Vice Chancellor, have both said the incident did not happen in the University or the State. Regardless of location, a crime took place and the fervent assertion of the Abia State Governor that the video was staged by his ‘enemies,’ in addition to the ABSU Vice Chancellor’s declaration that the young men are not students of his university, though they are yet to be identified, are two of the main reasons why this protest walk must take place. The mindset of perpetual denial and impunity is one of the reasons violence against women continues unabated all across the country.

This protest walk is a clarion call for all the relevant authorities to unmask the ‘ABSU 5′ and bring them to justice. Anything less would be unacceptable.
