In February, WARIF organised a successful interactive session with the Lagos State law enforcement to establish a strong collaboration between the foundation and law enforcement. Dr. DaSilva emphasised the importance to the Nigerian Police Force of sending all cases of sexual assault and rape seen at the stations to referral centres such as the WARIF Centre in Yaba, where adequate medical treatment and counselling can be given.

Speaking with the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, Dr. Kemi DaSilva  explained that the collaboration between the police and the centre is directly proportional to the desired win in the fight against the high incidence of sexual violence.

She also guaranteed  the organization’s commitment to working alongside law enforcement in  ensuring the wellbeing of the survivors.
