@ SHERATON HOTEL AND TOWERS IKEJA LAGOS AFRICA.
The event focused on the root cause of domestic violence and sexual abuse in African, Nigeria as a case study the possible way to reduce it owing to the fact that it can not be stopped and the few direct causes that were pointed out are;1, HARSH CULTURAL PRACTICE,
2, CONSTITUTIONAL ERROR,
3, MAN MADE etc
1, Culture, because is a country that operates a patriarchic system of Government then women are always at the receiving end being seen as inferior being.(is men’s world)
2, Constitutional error due to this patriarchic system the laws are made for the benefit of the men who made them and few that can protect women are silence, rule of law is not completely obeyed.
3, Man-made, Due to the fallout of one and two mention reasons here above-which has given birth to verbal and oral abuse as a normal lifestyle resulting to the good number of its citizens having a psychiatric problem( HIDDEN NDI ARA IS TO MUCH) which many of them don’t even know they suffer, they see verbal/oral abuse as a norm in their society as such emotional instability is common with them. (my mother said the easy way to kill someone is by mouth, is a society that people talk to people anyhow without minding the emotional implications) and they get away with it why the sufferer meant it out to the society in different ways they choose.
Anger/ hostility grows by the day, the majority of people in such society is internally angry which can be discharged anyhow, anytime.
Even the women are comfortable with the earlier mention issues for fear of the unknown and financial security, seeing it as a normal thing, to them is not a big deal, rather those who see it as abnormal are been criticise and call names, why many of them fear to be called wise women when you know your right. funny society.
RE-ORIENTATION, TRAINING AND EDUCATION Were SUGGESTED AS THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THIS MENACE IN THE SOCIETY THAT IS NOW AN EPIDEMIC IN THAT PART OF THE WORLD. (Nigeria as a case study)
BAR RICHARD NWANKWO THE FOUNDER WAS ENCOURAGED TO TAKE THE LECTURE ACROSS OTHER STATES OF THE COUNTRY TO SENSITIZED ITS CITIZENS TO FRIENDLY SOCIETY ON THIS TOPIC.
