Michael Collins Ajereh, better known as Don Jazzy, the CEO of Mavin Records has condemned rape in totality, tagging it inhumane. He also called on the federal government to come to the rescue of several young girls who are being raped on daily basis.
Don Jazzy made this call this morning via his Twitter handle. He said “It’s so heartbreaking to see how far some people would go to dehumanize others for their own sexual urge and satisfaction. As children grow, parents need to give them proper orientations on respecting people’s will and not forcing them against it.”
According to Wikipedia, rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration carried out against a person without that person’s consent.
And according to the Federal government, over 2 million Nigerians girls are raped every year, but there is no reliable public data to support or disprove this claim.
Last year, the Federal Government launched the Sex Offenders register to tackle issues of rape in Nigeria, saying the over two million Nigerian girls and women being raped annually is unacceptable.
Meanwhile, Don Jazzy has called on those in the corridors of power in the country to act in support of these young ones and women in general. In his message, he said: “Lawmakers, Law enforcers and the Judiciary also need to work in unison to revamp our laws on sexual crimes to address these endemic acts and give the most effective deterrents to them. Our society should be one that frowns against these acts and not enable them.
“I hope everyone who have been victims do find their healings and get the justice they deserve”
