This was said by Nkoyo yesterday at the Women Development Centre in Calabar, where 35 members of the Community Crises Management Team (CCMT) were trained on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention and response under the theme “Building Safer Communities.”
The gang rape in Calabar South is one of three incidents that we are now addressing. Another example is the pastor at Unical who had a string of unfortunate events, including sleeping with and impregnating young girls, by pretending to be a divine messenger.

“The third case is the one in Akpabuyo where a man in the community raped a mentally challenged girl,” stated Toyo, a former ambassador of Nigeria to Ethiopia and Djibouti. According to Toyo, these are the three instances at hand.

Toyo, a former lawmaker from the federal constituency of Calabar Municipality/Odukpani, said that the 35 people who made up the community crises management team (CCMT) were selected from the two LGAs in Odukpani and Calabar Municipality to learn how to handle gender-based violence (GBV) emergencies in their own communities.
