Lami Ahmed, Adamawa state’s Commissioner for Women Affairs has blamed the increasing rape cases in the country on the devil.
Speaking in an interview on Punch, she added that there’s a breakdown in family values resulting in a higher rate of divorce. Ahmed said;
“To me, the reason why the cases of rape are increasing every day is because rape is the handiwork of the devil. There’s a breakdown in family values resulting in a higher rate of divorce.
“Situations such as the separation of the father and mother can sometimes expose the child to abuse either from a family member or neighbours.”
