Yobe State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice Mr Sale Samanja, has expressed concern over the spate of Gender-based Violence (GBV) which is militating against effective protection of women and children in the state.
Samanja said this during the Validation of GBV Service Provider, Assessment and Mapping in Damaturu, the state capital, yesterday.
The validation meeting was organised by the Yobe State Government’s Multi-Sectoral Crisis Recovery Project (MCRP), in collaboration with the Northeast Development Commission (NEDC).
“It is very important to our society.
“As the Chief Prosecutor of the state, I know how rampant it is, as it affects Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states.
“We have been witnessing a lot of cases that attracted the government’s attention. That is why I am here to give my moral support.
“I will continue to pursue rape cases, I’ll not allow any form of compromise,” he said.
Alhaji Musa Jidawa, MCRP’s Coordinator, said the meeting was designed to facilitate validation of the data collected from GBV survivors.
He said the meeting would also create awareness on how the survivors could access justice and other support services.
