Being a man is more than a name, it’s about responsibility, reliability and being a role model.
These factors are more important than the thing between the legs of many men.
The condescending way some men display towards women and female children is worrisome.
Just last week, The Injustice Blog demanded an end to rape following the parade of a 40-year-old man Mallam Muhammad Usman by the Borno State Polie for defiling a ten-year-old girl in Maiduguri, the state capital.
One is yet to fully vent about that situation, before hearing the news of another rape incident. This time, in Plateau state.
A Jos Upper Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos North Local Government Area, on Wednesday 9th of August 2017 remanded one Hambali Musa in prison for allegedly raping a two-year-old girl.
On June 29, 2017, the girl’s mother Layuza Lukman, informed her husband Aminun Musa that the little girl jerked and cried endlessly when she tried to wash her private part. When asked what the cause of her pains was, she mentioned the accused name as the one who had carnal knowledge of her.
Incidents like this are gradually becoming the order of the day. Many men are running amok with their manhoods. This is unacceptable and responsible men have to stand up and speak against this callous behaviour of the male gender.
What exactly is wrong with our men?
