34% of Nigerians think so.
There has been an increase in reports of rape: I don’t know if there is an increase because there actually is or it is that we are aware lately due to the world becoming a global village i.e technology and social media.
Regardless, rape is horrible, traumatising and dehumanising! I don’t know why a sane mind would actually do such a terrible thing! I pray no one goes through it!
There are different causes of rape, many factors come into play. Man rape women and in some rare, bizarre cases, women rape men. You didn’t know? Sometimes people are raped by people they trust… other times it is a random attack. It is important that we all educate and find a way to protect ourselves from these situations. There are some situations beyond control and there are some that could have been avoided.Tweet
I once heard the story of a girl that jumped over a 4-storey building because a guy wanted to rape her. She went to visit her “toaster”, she spent the night and he tried to rape her. Granted the guy is at fault, however, she also put herself in an enabling environment for him. Be sharp! He said "na wetin she tink say go happen when she kon sleep over? I resemble her papa?
I also agree that indecent dressing plays a role, still, it does not justify rape! What is wrong, is wrong!
NOI Polls revealed:
“In order to commemorate this event and honor the girl child this special day, NOI Polls Limited released one of the polls we conducted in the first quarter of the year 2013, which was focused on the challenges faced by the girl child in Nigeria and indeed the world over as a result of the incidence of rape among women in the society"
34% Indecent Dressing
9% Lack of moral values
9% Inability to control sexual urges

Do you agree with these results?
