In line with the mandate of Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, to embark on various sensitization and enlightenment campaigns, the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) at the weekend engaged over 5000 students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) on Sexual Assault Prevention.

According to the Coordinator of the DSVRT, Mrs. Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, the Sexual Assault Prevention Drive for Higher Institutions organised in partnership with the Pastor Bimbo Odukoya Foundation was aimed at addressing issues of sexual harassment, date rape, safety on campus, the role of a bystander and prevention.

“UNILAG Students were given tips of how to avoid being victims of sexual assault. They were also informed of how to stay safe in social settings, some of which include making a plan B for emergency exits from a place, protecting their drinks, avoiding clubs or parties that charge men but let women enter and drink for free”, Mrs. Vivour-Adeniyi said.

She said that students were also informed and educated on the legal implications of committing sexual assault offences, and they were surprised to hear that these crimes carry up to life imprisonment.
