The First Lady of Benue State, Dr. Mrs. Eunice Ortom, led a walk to create awareness against gender-based violence in Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria
The walk was held on Thursday, Dec 10, as part of the activities to mark the closing of this year’s 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence.
The First Lady led participants through major streets of Makurdi, the state capital, and terminated the walk at Benue Hotels where a dissemination meeting was held.
Speaking at the dissemination meeting, Mrs Ortom warned that the people must not take the end of the #16daysofactivism period as the end of the fight against GBV. The story of Dr Mrs. Ifeyinwa Angbo, went viral on social media after she posted a video of herself being beaten by her husband on social media, a few weeks ago.

The first lady’s walk comes days after her and her husband, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State reconciled a domestic abusive husband, Pius Angbo with his wife, Dr. Ifeyinwa Angbo.
