She said the awareness campaign kicked off with a walk against domestic and sexual offences  from Military Hospital, Lagos to Falomo to sensitise the public to  the dangers of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).

She also urged residents of Lagos State to see themselves as Mandated Reporters with a duty to say and do something whenever they saw something.

The Managing Director of LASWA, Mr Oluwadamilola Emmanuel, appealed to participants to spread the message across the nooks and  crannies of the state and become ambassadors against Domestic and sexual violence in Lagos State.

Emmanuel emphasised the importance of inter-agency collaboration, explaining that a large number of Lagos residents made use of LASWA jetties and terminals daily, hence the reason for the joint sensitisation between LASWA and DSVA.
