The VAPP Act

The Violence Against Persons Prohibitions (VAPP) Act was passed into Law in Nigeria in 2015. The Act prohibits all forms of violence against persons in private and public life, and provides maximum protection and effective remedies for victims and punishment of offenders.

These images are simplifications of sections (offences and penalties) in the VAPP Act that relate to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) using comic illustrations and simple wordings.
