Group laments increase in violence against men

Group laments increase in violence against men

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

The founder of the NGO, Miss Kehinde Awojola,  said that GYRIN has received alarming reports from men after it launched its campaign on “No To Violence Against Men”.

Awojola said that scores of married men had since daily besieged her office to share unpleasant experiences being melted 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 recalls that Awojola and her team led a protest at the FCT High court, Jabi, in December where the trial of Sanda took place.

The GYRIN carried placards with inscriptions: “Say No to Violence Against Men” and “I endorse no to violence against men”, among others.
