What Is Rape?

Rape is defined as having sexual intercourse with a person without her/ his consent by force or deception.  Statutory rape is having sexual intercourse with a person who is below the age of consent (even if he or she consents).  Consent means compliance in or approval of what is done or proposed by another. The official age of consent varies from country to country.


Acquaintance Rape

Acquaintance rape is a form of sexual assault involving coercive sexual activities perpetrated by an acquaintance of the rape victim. There is a popular misconception that rape is normally committed by strangers who lurk in the.


Date Rape

Date rape occurs when a woman goes out with a guy and is raped in the process normally by her date. What started as a simple outing or invitation to have fun turns out to be a nightmare for the woman. Usually, the rape is premeditated and planned carefully by the perpetrator(s). In most cases, the woman is either drugged through food and drinks, or taken to a location she may not easily get away. It may also be carried out by a jealous boyfriend or ex-boyfriend to punish a woman or pay her back for a wrong-doing.  A first-time date could also turn into a rape.

Most rapes in Nigeria are committed by acquaintances, someone the victim knows such as a boyfriend, schoolmate, family friend, relative, uncle, church pastor, school teacher, youth leader, office boss, etc. Almost half of all rapes occur either in the victim's home/ room or during a visit to the acquaintance.
