Nigerian actress, Victoria Inyama wants women to be wary of the kind of clothes they wear to avoid getting raped.
In a video shared via her Instagram page on Friday, July 31, 2020, the mother of three 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.
"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," she wrote.
"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🤔 #notorape #notodomesticviolence."
Over the last few months, there has been an increase in reported rape cases in Nigeria.
More interestingly are the cases of some celebrities who have been called out for allegedly getting involved in the distasteful and disgraceful act.
