As the tide of gender-based violence and abuse has grown exponentially, Mrs Nonye Soludo, the wife of the Anambra state governor, has asked women to show serious concern by speaking up more.
Speaking at a meeting with the women of Anambra in Awka, Mrs Soludo noted that speaking up is the first step in winning a campaign against gender-based violence and abuse, especially against women.
She commended the Anambra State Department of Women and Social Welfare for its efforts to address domestic violence and abuse cases in the state, including urging the creation of a special court to hear such cases.
However, Mrs Soludo noted that tougher laws were needed to deal with criminals, and that society as a whole, including communities and religious groups, needed to show a conscious interest in fighting crime.
She also urged anyone who has witnessed or is experiencing abuse to contact the appropriate channels and assured that appropriate action will be taken immediately.
