ONDO Joins ABUJA In March Against RAPE.

Activists, youths and concerned individuals in Ondo State today took to the streets to protest the rising spate of s*xual assault against women and young girls in Nigeria.

The protesters, who marched through the popular Oba Adesida Road through NEPA Market in Akure, the state capital, called on government at all levels to enact laws that could see to the drastic reduction of r*pe in the country.

The protesters were clad in black clothes and carrying placards bearing different inscriptions while also chanting solidarity songs.

Speaking during the protest in Akure, Comrade Obina Ezechukwu, a member of the TakeItBack Movement, said everyone should condemn sexual assault against females, noting that there was no justification for rape anywhere in the country.

He added that the youth would continue to "Say no" and stand against all forms of sexual abuses, intimidation, violence against women and girls.
