Protesters storm Lagos governor’s office; demand end to rape


Protesters on Thursday stormed the Lagos State governor’s office, Alausa, Ikeja, demanding an end to rape cases in the state and across the country.

The protesters who were at the venue as early as 8:25 a.m., said the protest was meant to pass a message to the government on the need to end incidences of rape.

PREMIUM TIMES’ correspondent at the venue reports that although they are still relatively few in number, participants said others would join them soon.
