Fashola Commissions Transit Home For Victims Of Domestic Violence

The Lagos State Government Thursday took a decisive step towards halting the incidence of violence against women in the State as it commissioned a Transit Home for victims of domestic violence at Ayobo-Ipaja, in Alimosho Local Government Area of the State.

The 176-bed Transit Home, which is the first of its kind in the country, will provide temporary accommodation for the victims who will also be counseled and given the opportunity to learn skills that will make them self-dependent.

Speaking at the official commissioning of the Transit Home, the State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), said his administration finds unacceptable ills like violence against women, maternal and child mortality and will do everything it its power to end them.
