MUST SEE! Do you know a rape or abuse victim? This information will help them

Sexual assault, rape and defilement have been a major cause of worry among residents on the Lagos Mainland. Not only so, the stigma and the various condemnations associated with the act have often prevented sufferers from coming forward to make their case known.

While the government has continued to educate and create centres to help victims and also help in prosecuting offenders, only a few cases have been addressed in the process

Some of these cases are associated with lack of information on the part of the victims with the government agency handling rape cases having less information to help victims and also prosecute offenders.

In a bid to further help victims of sexual assaults and others, the government has equipped all flagship primary health centres with rape kits.

As a result, survivors of sexual assault can receive free medical services at the centres scattered across parts of the state.

For Lagos Mainland residents, below are the centres to visit for urgent medical care.

  1. Ayantuga PHC (Ikorodu)
  2. Imota PHC
  3. Ita-Elewa PHC
