Renowned Nigeria social media influencers, advocates, celebrities and concerned Nigerians took to the street of Lagos sparking spontaneous protests against rape, assault and domestic violence.



They joined several concerned Nigerians from different sectors of the society to create awareness and encourage victims to speak up.
The seventh edition of the much awaited walk against rape campaign was held on Wednesday, March 15th 2018 in support of the ongoing war against rape in the country and in commemoration of the International Women’s Day.



The walk which is aimed at creating awareness and lending a voice to sexually abused persons (particularly women and children) in the society was a huge success as people came out enmasse to participate and speak up against rape.

The hashtag #Walkaagainstrape didn’t only dominate social media conversations on Wednesday, but it also trended on social media.

According to the National Coordinator, Walk Against Rape, Esther Ijewere:”We appreciate Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for his recent declaration of 25 years jail term for rapist and perpetrators of all forms of domestic violence.

However we have this one demand to make and it is for the REJUVENATION OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM AND LAWS!, There should be a more transparent justice system to tackle sexual crimes, create and enforce existing laws that protect women from discrimination and violence, including rape, poundings, torture and all forms of verbal abuse. We call on the government to revive the justice system for people to have firm faith in it.

Project Fame Finalist, singer and actress, Immaculate Edache who was also part of the Walk Against Rape said:” Rape is an unjustified act that is injurious to the human soul. Therefore rape is a crime that shouldn’t be taken lightly”.

The walk cum demonstration started from the Archbishop Vining Memorial church (AVMC) ground and ended at the Ministry of Women Affairs, Alausa, Ikeja.

The feedback, engagement and interaction gotten from the walk indicates that more and more awareness needs to be created in order to combat the scourge of rape.

Walk Against Rape is organised by Rubies Ink Initiative for Women and Children annually since 2010

They should also educate young ladies that their "No" should be "No" before they collect iphone, go shopping, spend a man's hard earned money, and send the 'wrong signals'. The bitter truth is some ladies incite rape by sending the 'wrong signals'(this is not victim shaming)our elders have a saying 'you dont smell what you don't intend to eat'........ angry

Nice one. In view of all of this consent thing(which is extremely tricky). How about women who intentionally get pregnant for guys without their consent(just to trap them) to having a baby and then string you along by force, shouldn't guys be able to give consent to having a baby too

the black dude with shades looks like an authentic rapist yet he is leading the protest against rape..

Say "no" to rape.

But from experience, some rapes are not rape.

Rubbish protest
When that uber driver and his mates walked in solidarity, some useless girls here were asking why they noise, is it all of them that was accused, now I want to ask why the noise is it all of them that has been raped.

While they are at it, they should also protest against false accusation of rape, emotional and psychological blackmail as well as saying no to being spent on.

Once again useless protest.

Nice one, I have been thinking about this for a while. You want consent to have sex but you will unilaterally go and have a baby and come back and be forcing it on some one
