Ngozi Ugochi-Igbo, Akeredolu’s new aide tasks girls to learn Taekwondo
The newly appointed aide of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu , Miss Ngozi Ugochi-Ugo has tasked girl to learn Taekwondo.
This was made known through her Facebook page.
she urged parents to allow their girls learn Taekwondo as a means of self defence, in case of attack by rapists.
Ngozi was reacting to the killing of Miss Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100 level student of the University of Benin, by her rapists inside the church where she was reading.
Ngozi also attended UNIBEN between 2012 and 2017.
He said, “Unfortunately, this case is just one out of many other cases of rape in Nigeria. Uwa was not in a bar or walking down the street wearing a short skirt (one of the many myopic justifications we give for rape occurrence) she was in the church, reading.
“If someone like Uwa can be raped and murdered inside a church building then what can happen to rest of us?? Unfortunately the world is not safe and women are even more vulnerable.
“We can march all we want chanting justice! Justice! But what happens later on? After the culprits are apprehended, what happens when another case of rape and murder rises again, do we pick up our placards and chant Justice! Justice!
“I am certain Nigeria will change for the better but what we don’t know is just how long it’ll take this change to come. How many more people do we have to lose?? How many more girls have to go through the traumatic experience that comes with rape?? Just how many more?”
