The president said that  so far, the group had received over 4,000 cases that were already documented  and that even few of such had to do with men suffering abuses from their wives.

Okei-Odumakin added that the group had succeeded in working with the appropriate authorities to ensure the prosecution of so many of the cases.

“We have in the recent past secured judgement in not less than 10 of these numerous cases, while the lack of speedy prosecution has kept a lot under trial till date.

“The fact remains that we will continue to pursue all avenues of getting justice  to any victim of gender based violence, no matter how long it takes,” she said. (NAN)
