Saxena added, that the rise of rape cases in the state was alarming and the current cases were from those with courage to report to the authorities, while others weren’t reported for fear of stigmatisation.
The manager of Adamawa State Sexual Assault Referral Center, Dr Usha Saxena, further made the disclosure that hundreds of victims are not willing to report similar other cases taking place all over the state.
She said, “Many parents shy away from reporting sexual assault on their daughters for fear of stigmatisation.
“And because of this, the girls are exposed to asexually transmitted diseases.”
She said religious inhibitions have prevented many victims to come forward to report such abuses otherwise the number would have been more than 500.
The manager urged parents and traditional rulers to educate the people to always come forward with such cases.
