Abdulrosheed Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo has said that he is set to distribute pepper spray to the female residents in his town.
He said that the effort is geared towards curbing incessant rape attacks as the pepper spray would be used as self-defence against rapists.
According to a statement confirmed by the monarch’s press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, the distribution is scheduled to come up on Monday, June 15. The statement read in part,
“Interested females across the three locals of Iwo, Ayedire and Ola Oluwa are enjoined to converge at Oluwo’s palace on Monday by 10 am. There will be a brief enlightenment and training on its usage and protection against sexual assault”.
