Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has joined the ongoing conversation about rape and his view on the issue has left many people impressed.
In a recent tweet, the talented actor made it clear he does not support indecent dressing. However, a woman dressed indecently is not an open invitation for her to get raped.
According to him, even if she has agreed to be intimate with a man for a fee and goes back on her word after collecting the money, the man involved should apply non-violent means in getting his money back rather than raping her.

Meanwhile, former Big Brother Africa winner, Uti Nwachukwu, has petitioned the Nigeria Police Force demanding a full-scale investigation into the rape allegation leveled against him by a Twitter user.
The reality TV star shared a copy of the four-paged petition letter he wrote to the police on Friday, June 5, 2020, on his Instagram handle. In the caption of the post, Uti claimed he does not know the lady accusing him. He said he is angry, hurt, and utterly disgusted but he is scared to express his feelings over the fear of being attacked.
Meanwhile, a group, Say No Campaign, has stated that the federal government must take responsibility for increasing cases of rape in Nigeria.
Say No Campaign was reacting to the rape of a 12-year-old girl by 11 men, one of whom was a 57-year-old man, in Jigawa state and another rape of a 22-year-old female student, Vera Omozuwa, by four men who gruesomely murdered her, in a church at Benin Edo state.
