The chief commissioner of the Ghana Girl Guide Association, Mrs. Abdul Zakiya Wahab has advised victims of domestic violence and death threats especially women and young girls in their various homes, to report all forms of abuse to her outfit or the Ghana Police service for redress.
She said most often victims failed to report such issues due to societal norms and threats.
Mrs. Zakiya gave the advice during a press conference in Accra following the recent spike of domestic violence against women and series of murder cases on women in the country.
She indicated that most often, victims of domestic violence are unable report incidents to DOVVSU for fear that the perpetrators would be prosecuted or jailed.
The Chief commissioner said the unit rather invite the perpetrators to solve the issues through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to bring peace and harmony in the affected family.
“When you come to us, tell us what exactly you want us to do for you because we are always there for you, do not be afraid”, she stated.
