Group Laments Rising Cases Of Violence Against Men


Girls and Youth Re-integration Network (GYRIN), an NGO, has expressed concern over rising cases of domestic violence against men in the country.

Miss Kehinde Awojola, Founder of the NGO, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Abuja that GYRIN received alarming reports from men after it launched its campaign on “No To Violence Against Men”.

Awojola said that scores of married men had daily besieged her office to share unpleasant experiences being visited on them by their wives.

According to her, she received numerous calls from men who sought to know how they could deal with the way their wives were maltreating and taking up violence against them in their homes.

Awojola said the number of calls from men, sequel to the fallout of the awareness campaign at the Federal High Court, Jabi, in Abuja, where Maryam Sanda, the alleged killer of Bilyaminu Bello was being arraigned, were unimaginable. (NAN)
