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.
