Today, men from all walks of life based in Surulere including community and religious leaders, politicians, bankers, doctors, policemen, among other respectable people in our society joined the movement against #Rape and all forms of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence against women and children.

It is gratifying to see more men of good conscience heed the clarion call to take unequivocal action against the menace.

As part of the symbolic All Male Advocacy Walk, a signpost declaring Surulere Local Government as the first #RapeFreeZone in Nigeria was also unveiled to eloquently demonstrate the intention of the community to discourage impunity with regards to the crime of rape and support the survivors.

To other men and boys out there who are yet to join this movement, the Lagos State First Lady, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu seized the opportunity of the walk to urge them to do so without further delay.

#TakeResponsibility for making our society safe for all women and girls.

We shall not rest on our oars until the whole of Lagos and Nigeria truly become #RapeFreeZone.

To me issue of raping needs holistic points of view starting from failure or lack of parental roles and responsibilities, Idleness, lack of piety or conscience, lawlessness in the society, absence of social justice and security, societal menace or vices which has now seen as order of the day.

Can one imagine students of various institutions comprising of Males and females who are known to be single at home but are conspicuously married in school.

Some are even leaving in the same room as Roommates all in the name of Civilization.

Did anyone ask the question of why the sudden rise in the figures of raping these days.

It is definitely the outcome of these carelessness ways of lives from these so called youths (Students) leave in their various institutions while the schools were on but in returns at this time such opportunities are closed and these guys thought they needed to satisfy their sexual urge or desires not minding where and how they go about it.
