Survivors of domestic violence in Lagos get Ambode’s empowerment, funds

The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) has concluded its first empowerment training programme for survivors desirous of accessing the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Trust Fund.
The coordinator of the DSVRT, Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, in a statement on Tuesday, said the training was in line with the mandate of the state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode’s to ensure survivors of domestic and sexual violence receive a holistic response and a new lease of life.
Vivour-Adeniyi said from trends seen in cases handled so far, at least 70 percent of survivors are afraid to walk out of an abusive relationship because they are financially dependent on the abuser.
