Gaps in legal and social frame works compounded by weak enforcement are the key drivers in the growing impunity for VAWG and Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in Nigeria. Redress for survivors and accountability by perpetrators are in abysmal figures for violations in private and public spaces. Efforts by organizations, working on Violence against Women and enactment of legislations at federal and state levels especially the Violence against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Act 2015, the adoption of National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325 are yet to show significant changes. However, the establishment of Sexual Assault Referral Centers (SARC), and Sexual Domestic Violence Response Teams, across the country is gradually availing VAWG survivor’s defined, specialized and formal support. Despite all these efforts the legal provisions, socio-cultural practices and hurdles in the administration of justice provide women with little protection against violence.
The institutions of faith and culture are grounded in theological legitimacy. This qualifies them to frame discourse on issues aimed at extracting commitments for peace, justice and social equity. In addition, these institutions are considered an embodiment of moral values, which confers on them some influence in personal and family spheres, as well as social attitudes and behavior. Religious and Traditional Leaders, institutions and organizations are important influencers in Nigeria. These organizations are considered to have more legitimacy, respect and influence than secular NGOs. They are more established and have closer links with communities. They are held in reverence with less suspicion and even exercise limited enforcement capacity. These organizations also serve as arbitration platforms in dispute resolution relating to family life. Limitations however abound in legal frameworks, offering little or no respite to VAWG survivors thereby limiting women’s capacity to seek justice for abuses especially for violations within family settings.
