With the rise in number of rape cases, Nollywood actress Victoria Inyama has urged ladies to dress appropriately to avoid being victims.
Inyama said this in a social media post, where she condemned the government's effort in tackling the menace which has eaten deep into the society.
"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……"
She stated that even though inappropriate dressing is not an excuse for rape, some men who have health issues are easily moved by inappropriate dressing.
"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”
