Basse off late had seen numerous rape cases reported. Most of the rapists were said be young and grown up men. A student at George’s was arrested recently after he was accused of attempting to rape an American Citizen from the State of Ohio.

Women rights activists in the country have condemned the recent sexual violence directed at women- most importantly the girl child. They call such attacks as “uncalled for” and hate crime against women. The women rights activists want Government to help re-enforce Community based policing.

They appealed to the Basse police to help arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of such heinous crimes.
