The ‘Walk Against Rape‘ rally started from the Memorial Archbishop Vinning Church grounds yesterday, and it was a huge success, which had participation from several Nollywood stars including Ini Edo, Emmanuel Ikubuese, Annie Idibia, singer Lami Phillips, and others. The main slogan for this event was ‘Break the Silence. Speak up against rape’.
Some of the other banners spotted during this event had messages such as: ‘A crime against humanity‘, ‘save your loved one. Speak up against rape ‘ and ‘No excuse for rape‘.
The walk was definitely a worthwhile endeavor by the celebrities which further helped in highlighting this menace to the society through the powerful messages printed on the banners. Sociologists have said that continual publicity and highlighting of a public issue could help change the consciousness of the people in the long term.
