Nollywood actress, Victoria Inyama has told ladies to dress appropriately to avoid getting raped.

She revealed that many rapists have mental health issues and that certain dresses triggers them to commit rape.

Victoria Inyama gave the advise because she believes the Nigerian government isn't "ready to put a fixed penalty to rape".

She shared: ‘Appropriate Dressing & Comportment

"It’s obvious to me that the Nigerian government is not really ready to put a fixed penalty to rape and so I beg my ladies (minus the minors or aged victims) to plsssss dress in appropriate clothing so as to reduce the trigger for the perpetrators.

"A lot of these Perpetrators have underlying mental health issues & being around them in certain clothing is a trigger…..sadly the victim still gets to be shamed & ridiculed, so since this government is Not ready to do much, it would be wise to safeguard yourself.

"Yes, it’s not about the dressing some will say & compare with Europe & America, but remember they take rape cases seriously unlike Nigerian. Think about it.
