Not Less Than 10 Girls Raped Daily In Rivers State by msmon(m): 8:17pm On May 16, 2015
The Rivers State Commissioner for Social Welfare and Rehabilitation, Joe Poroma, has said that “not less than 10″ girls are raped everyday in the state.

Mr. Poroma disclosed this while testifying before the ongoing Rivers State Commission of Inquiry into
politically-motivated killings and destruction of properties before and during the 2015 general elections.

“The statistics are very high,” Mr. Poroma said. “Not less than 10 girls are raped every day in the state mostly by gangs and militants.”

Mr. Poroma said his ministry’s collaboration with Doctors Without Borders helped rape victims in the
state come out for adequate medical care.

“Usually, they don’t report to the police or their parents for fear of victimisation,” he said.

The Commissioner said the rape cases are not due to political issues and attributed the high crime rate in the state because people who commit the crimes go scot-free.

“My hope is that there is a need for us to arrest the situation whereby police will do what they are supposed to do,” said Mr. Poroma.

In 2012, more than 1,200 girls were allegedly raped in Rivers State, according to the Centre for
Environment, Human Rights and Development.

300 ladies in a month , What is the Government and Police looking at?

What are the women doing to prevent it? Mothers nko?

This is really annoying...... 300 ladies in a month?, 900 ladies in 3months? OMG! And the government folded their arms doing nothing?...

Even if the Government is ignoring it, what about the Women in that state? Can't they do something to prevent it?

JEEZ.
