Campaign Against Crime strive to reach youths and influence them positively. Sexual violence is important to #CAPIO given that the pain/trauma of sexual abuse doesn’t erase and heal easily. Rather than imposing sexual urge or will on others, you need to practice self-control. Sexual violence is defined as any conduct done to a person without explicit consent. Consent must be devoid of force- emotional, physical or psychological. Sexual violence including but not limited to rape and incest. Enugu state has promulgated/domesticated VAPP Act, of which (Part 1, Section 1, Paragraph (a) classified rape as when an individual (he/she) intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person with any other part of his or her body or anything else without consent. Sexual abuse consists of indecent touching of any body part, the release of sensitive content online, child sexual abuse, incest (10yrs imprisonment), abuse of PLWD, sorting with the body (sex for grade), etc. It is important to state that consent accessed through duress constitutes rape, as contained in Part 1, Section 1 paragraph (c) of VAPP Act, 2015. No, means No! Stop Rape and Beg (RnB)!
Sexual abuse starts from home, and then to the society at large through peer pressure. Sexual abuse leaves the survivor psychological traumatized, there is nothing fun about rape, it has only negative consequence to the perpetrators who feel powerful and the survivor who feels helpless. Enablers of sexual abuse are, but not limited to: stigmatization which follows sexual abuse make survivors unwilling to speak up when abused, excessive intake of alcohol and drugs (Dutch courage), laced drinks, weak laws against rape with respect to collaboration (external evidence) needed to substantiate claims, ignorance and time lag needed for necessary medical examination and evidence gathering. Sexual violence should not be condoned, as there is no rational explanation to rape. Rape can equally happen in between sexual act, should any of the parties withdraw their consent halfway. Indecent assault is what happens in marriages and not rape, once there is no judicial separation. Parents should make out time for their children, listen to them, value them over money. Parenting by proxy has negative impact children development. To report any case of sexual assault, reach out to: TERMASAC -09095619586
