Mrs Maria Edeko, the Edo State Commissioner for Social Development and Gender Issues, has made it known that a centre has been established for sexual abuse victims to receive special counsel and support.

According to her, survivors (victims) referred to the centre will undergo a forensic examination "receive counselling, psychosocial support and be advised on and supported in the process of pressing charges as the centre is designed to render multiple services as a one-stop-shop,” she said.

Edeko, at a 5-day training course on ‘Sexual Assault Trauma Counselling (SARC)‘ in Benin, said that the apprehension of sex offenders would be made easier.
