The first lady of Akwa Ibom state, Martha Udom Emmanuel will on Saturday join Rev. Fola Achudume of the Victory Life Bible church to wage war against rapists across the country on www,saveherfoundation.ng.
Also professor Olubunmi Ashinmolowo of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta and Reverend Victor Adeyemi of Global Harvest International Church as well as other stakeholders will join in the fight against the inhumane act.
The Lead Facilitator, Mrs Achudume disclosed this while speaking with newsmen on the topic titled ''Vulnerability of Females in the Society, are the virtues of mothers still with us? On Friday.
She explained that emotional instability in males, parental neglect and the lack of fear of God have been identified as the reasons for increased rape cases in the society.
The founder of ''Save Her Foundation'' added that most men commit rape because the society places the female at a disadvantage culturally , saying that men are also made to bottle up their emotions and are treated as tin gods by some parents.
Mrs Achudume explained further that the home front is currently being neglected because women these days lend hand in providing for the home unlike in the past.
She said that the urge for economic advancement has negatively impacted the attention that mothers should ordinarily give to their children.
According to her, children who have not been properly raised are more likely to engage in rape.
Speaking against stigmatization, Rev Mrs Achudume called for sensitization programmes to get rape victims to speak up about their experiences so their their assailants will be put behind bars.
She therefore advised parents especially mothers to devote time to the upbringing of their children just as she harped on the need for concerted efforts by stakeholders to end rape in the society.
