The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence, has engaged one hundred and fifty Artisans, Community Development Committee and Community Development Association leaders to be ambassadors against Sexual and Domestic-Based Violence.

Its Executive Secretary, Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi who stated this, said the purpose was to train the community leaders, as they were closer to the community members and would help in tackling domestic, sexual and gender based violence.

Director of Administration, Centre for Women’s Health and Information, Atinuke Odukoya, said the training was critical because it would help community leaders to adopt the survivor centres approach, which would help victims and survivors get justice.

She said both the husband and the wife have complementary roles to play to ensure the society was rid of sexual and gender-based violence.
