The FCT Administration’s Executive Committee (FCTA EXCO) is set to establish more sexual assault referral centres in the territory.
FCTA’s Director, Information and Communication, Malam Muhammad Sule, said this in a statement on Tuesday.
Sule explained that the centres were to serve as shelters for survivors of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) across the territory.
He added that the survivors of SGBV who had been abused and were experiencing trauma needed to be properly cared for.
