Catholic ladies auxiliary join fight against rape, SGBV
The fight against rape and other forms of sexual abuse recorded a boost yesterday as a lay apostolate women group of the Catholic Church in Nigeria, Ladies Auxiliary Supreme Subordinate Commandery, Nigeria, Knights of St. John International (KSJI), joined in the campaign.
To draw massive awareness to their cause, the group, led by a former Minister of State for Education and Supervising Minister for Foreign Affairs, Viola Adaku Onwuliri, took to the streets of Enugu in an awareness campaign march that terminated at the Government House where they met with the deputy governor, Cecilia Ezeilo.
Receiving the women, Ezeilo, who was represented by the State Commissioner of Gender Affairs, Peace Nnaji, called on other organisations to join in the fight against rape and other societal ills through sensitization and advocacy, promising that the state government would partner with the women.
