Aisha Buhari, Rape cases in Nigeria
The First Lady and wife of the President of Nigeria, Mrs. Aisha Buhari has reacted to the ongoing rape cases being revealed and perpetrated in the country and has urge the Ministry of Women Affairs and all security agencies to ensure that all suspects related to the rape cases are brought to book.

Aisha said this in a statement released via her official Instagram account, where she expressed her grievance saying that women in Nigeria at the moment have become vulnerable.

She recalled the 'Leave our daughters alone!' campaign she launched last year together with the wives of other state governors in other to end gender-based violence in Nigeria.

Her post reads;

“It is devastating to hear about the gruesome death of our daughters who were mercilessly raped by men, who in some cases are their fathers, brothers, and protectors of their chastity.

"Women are increasingly becoming vulnerable in a society that is expected to guaranty their safety and we owe it a duty to do everything possible to protect them.

"Last year, I started working with governors’ wives of the 36 states to end gender-based violence in Nigeria. I launched a campaign with the governors’ wives and other stakeholders and issued a statement nation-wide in response to increasing and frequent reports of GBV with the slogan – Leave our daughters alone!

"This was followed by a planned advocacy for the constitution of a presidential task force on ending GBV in Nigeria; prospective members were identified. The objective is to review the policy and legal framework on GBV with a view to proposing strengthening measures and an improvement plan.

"In view of the recent developments, I, therefore, call on all stakeholders especially the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs as well as legal and security agencies to expedite action so that justice takes its course accordingly.

"I will continue to work with the governors’ wives to ensure that relevant structures and policy frameworks are put in place to end gender-based violence in Nigeria.”
