A non-governmental organisation, Women Connected By Purpose (WCBP), says understanding various causes of rape cases will provide solutions to checking the recurrence. Mrs Mofoluwaso Ilevbare, Founder of the WCBP, stated this in Ibadan while speaking with newsmen.
Ilevbare said that social vices always had underlying causes and it was imperative to unravel them to find lasting solutions.
She noted that until everyone in the society took up the responsibility of ending sexual violence and abuse on children and girls in particular, there would always be repetition of the incident.
Another member of the organisation, Mrs Sade Adegoke, said the lock down, as one of the measures to curtail the Corona virus pandemic had revealed some of the ills in the society that were hidden before the lock down began.
She encouraged she encouraged everyone to report perpetrators and be watchful so that no offender goes unpunished.
