Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has said that government will continue to work with all actors to detect and punish the perpetrators of these sickening acts and work even harder to prevent their occurrence as gender based violence, rape and sexual assault have no place in the society.

Speaking at a virtual meeting with National Human Rights Commission recently, he said he had the opportunity to discuss rape and gender based violence with the commission, it’s unacceptable behaviour and a blemish on Nigerians collective humanity and dignity as a people and as a nation.

According to him, “gender based violence, rape and sexual assault have no place in the society. We will continue to work with all actors to detect & punish the perpetrators of these sickening acts & work even harder to prevent their occurrence.

“We will also continue to use the platform of the National Economic Counil to encourage States who are yet to domesticate the Violence Against Person’s Prohibition Act of 2015 and the Child Rights Act of 2003 to do so”, he said.
