As Nigerians proceed to deliberate on the rape case between Busola Dakolo and COZA pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, the Christian Affiliation of Nigeria CAN has requested parents to warn their children against inviting rapists through their dressing.
Reverend Israel Akanji, Chairman of CAN (North Central Zone), gave the cost when he spoke at a summit with the theme: “Elimination of violence against ladies and children”, organised by the Ladies’s Wing of Christian Council of Nigeria, at the moment November 19th.
Akanji whereas chatting with the ladies, mentioned
“When individuals put on mini attire, generally they even put on it to church we should converse against it in church buildings. A few of us attempt to not speak about it as a result of we really feel if we discuss to them, they could not return to our church buildings. The church has to provide you with powerful measures against indecent dressing; indecent dressing should not be accepted within the church of Christ. Even the Bible teaches that folks should gown decently to be within the Home of the Lord.
The Bible says thou shall not steal, kill and commit adultery. These are thought of to be grievous sins within the Bible, however individuals who rape, needs to be thought of as very critical criminals. The issue we have now in Nigeria is anonymity, individuals don’t wish to discuss when raped, parents don’t need their children to say it as a result of they really feel it is going to carry a nasty identify to their household and that’s the reason it has continued.
If rape circumstances are reported in good time and satisfactory measures are taken, quite a lot of issues will change.
I wish to enchantment to parents that whereas we’re ready for a regulation that may take care of rapists (I do know that legal guidelines exist proper now), parents should warn their children. Some children gown in such a method that they seem as if they’re inviting rapists to their lives. They are virtually bare, they expose physique elements that some individuals can not management themselves. Allow us to return to the tradition of first rate dressing, it could not cease however it is going to decrease it.”
