Igbo women vow to take over rape cases

Lolo Dr. Kate Ezeofor, Umuada president
The Umuada Igbo, the cultural umbrella of all Igbo speaking women in the world, has vowed to take up the prosecution of rape cases in Igboland.

The women, who met at Eke Umunnachi in Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State and Central School Ebenebe in Awka North Council Area on Saturday to sensitise women on their rights, said they had already taken up four of such cases in Anambra and Enugu states.

They said their resolve to intervene was informed by the rising incidence of rape in Igboland, a adding that they could not sit idly and watch the development. (Punch)
