EU, Collaborates To Fight Against Gender-based Violence

The European Union (EU) and its partners are mobilising to fight against sexual assault, prosecute offenders and ensure access to justice and victims.

In a statement yesterday, top of the EU’s priority list is the creation in Nigeria of a special court for Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) cases, which will be a key highlight of this year’s 16 Days of Activism against SGBV, which begins on November 25. THIS DAY reports.

“Since 2016, the EU has spent over N1 billion on the SARCs. As of June 2021, the SARCs had assisted over 21,000 survivors of sexual assault. Information Guide Nigeria

“They offered immediate medical emergency and counselling, in addition to supporting to victims to access the legal system. Over 70 per cent of the clients of the SARCs are young people under the age of 18. Clearly, this number does not properly represent the scale of sexual assault in Nigeria”.

“To underscore the importance of reporting and quality data collection in the fight against SGVB, the Spotlight Initiative is launching a report spotlighting 16 facts about SGBV, co-signed by the EU, the UN and the Nigerian government. Despite positive developments in awareness-raising, service provision and data collection, much more needs to be done to address the recognised data gaps.” jamb results

“In spite of the remarkable expansion and spread of the SARC initiative in Nigeria and stronger focus nationwide on the provision of comprehensive medical and counselling services for survivors, cases of sexual assault remains grossly underreported to the centres. Still worse is the proportion of cases that are prosecuted”.

“To make matters worse, even fewer convictions are secured, often after long, tortuous, winding legal processes.”

Against this backdrop, Ambassador Isopi, said: “fast-tracking access to justice for SGBV survivors has become imperative.”
