With the rise of sexual and gender-based violence, concerned Nigerians living in Lagos and Abuja took to the streets to protest the incessant rape and the lack of justice for victims around the country.

 

Even celebrities were not left out with actresses Tonto Dikeh, Hilda Dokubo, comedian Real Warri Pikin and media personality joining the march in both states to highlight the plight of women and children who constantly fall victims of gender-based violence.

In Abuja, protesters gathered at the police headquarters to sensitize people about what constitutes rape. The same was done in Lagos. Videos from the Lagos protest show men and woman dressed in all black while carrying placards warning against rape and asking for justice for victims.

However, Bolanle Olukanni, who was present at yesterday’s protest said the response from the Command Headquarters was not encouraging.

While sharing videos from the rally, she wrote: “Requesting for change with @standtoendrape. Protesting against the indifference of the @nigeriapoliceforce . We need you to do better for us. Help us . Protect us ! Honestly very disappointed with the response we got at the Command Headquarters.” She also took to Twitter to point out the flaws of the Nigerian Police Force.

See photos and videos from the peaceful rally below.
