Anti Social Vices Club of the Royal Ambassadors of Nigeria, at the weekend, in Oyo town, Oyo State, joined the rest of the world in a protest rally against the cases of rape and cultism across the country.
It condemned rape as barbaric, culturally unacceptable and ungodly, adding that God Himself detests unlawful sexual relationship, let alone the forceful act of rape.
It also noted that cultism would eventually result in frustration and abortion of life ambitions, self-destruction and untimely death.
Speaking at the rally, Marshal, Royal Ambassadors of Nigeria, Counselor Ayo Adekunle, said the rally was motivated by a passion to draw the eye of the public to the increasing cases of rape and cultism in our society.
He therefore called on the government to enact a legislation that would make rape a punishable act.
Adekunle said: “Our motivation is simply that we want the society to be free of such vices as cultism and rape. We want woman’s right to also be regarded as human rights. We want to see that an average woman can move freely in the society without being harassed and without being raped.”
Also speaking on the occasion, the National Coordinator, Anti Social Vices Club, Mr John Taiwo, said, “what we are saying is that rape and cultism should not be allowed to fester in our society, and that promoted us to stage this rally. We say ‘NO’ to the evil vices. Women deserve societal and governmental protection.”
The campaign train moved from Emmanuel Baptist Church to Owode through Akesa Market area to Jare Emily Junction, and terminated again at Emmanuel Baptist Church.
Present at the rally were the patron, Royal Ambassadors of Nigeria, Reverend Dr Kehinde Olaleye, Mr Tunji Odeleye, Oyo Men’s Missionary Union (MMU), Nigerian Baptist Convention, members of the Royal Ambassadors of Nigeria, among others.
