Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

The rising prevalence of some social vices in Bayelsa and Rivers states Nigeria’s has been a source of worry, considering it may be harming the self esteem of victims. One such issue is sexual violence, which has garnered scholars’ and the media’s attention as a pervasive occurrence in Nigeria(Baloyi, 2020). sexual violence is a widespread problem that has entered society’s fiber, including university groups and businesses (Long & Hubble, 2018). sexual violence is therefore not unique to Nigeria or Africa. sexual violence’s prevalence and causal elements must be studied, and what can be done to lessen students’ susceptibility must be researched (BeitchmanJ, 2019).
sexual violence is described as an uninvited, undesired, and unrecognized sexual approach made by one person to another in order to induce unwanted sexual interactions (Beutler , 2019). This includes any improper sexual overture, unwanted sexual approaches, sexual favor requests, and persistent behavior that is both subtle and unsubtle (Aditi, Sangeetha, & Binu, 2016). sexual violence in schools and I other organizations has also been defined as inappropriate sexual behavior that makes victims feel uneasy, afraid, or helpless and interferes with their academic performance.

According to Beutler (2019), sexual violence between male offenders and female victims is prevalent among university students. According to the related literature, many instances of sexual violence go unpunished, leaving victims to cope with the trauma, which often lasts a long time and occasionally manifests as psychiatric illnesses and mental health issues. According to Diallo(2020) and Long and Hubble (2018), sexual violence has a destabilizing influence on females, since the consequences of sexual violence are more harmful for female than for male (Gaba, 2020). Silva and Hill (2005) highlighted that sexual violence is more traumatizing for females, particularly when it includes rape. Unwanted sexual actions that irritate or make other people feel uncomfortable may take the form of verbal, non-verbal, physical, or sexual coercion, which is a kind of sexual violence at its most severe. Thus, the purpose of this research is to determine sexual violence in Bayelsa and rivers states from 2010-2020.


1.2 Statement of the Problem

There have been surveys and observations on gender violence in Bayelsa and Rivers states respectively in the form of sexual violence for at least three decades (Morley, 2011). Such misconduct has a big impact on the psychological well-being of females because of their socioeconomic vulnerability and how politically and culturally they are seen.
According to Egbejule(2016), the most prevalent kind of sexual misconduct in Nigeria is sexual approaches by male against female, reinforcing the uneven power dynamics in which the assailant has a higher and more important position of authority than the victim. There are also instances of sexual violence directed at female students by male students, which may escalate into rape in severe circumstances when the female student refuses to react to male approaches (Aditi et al., 2016). According to Fabmumng (2017), some of the causes of sexual violence stem from moral deficiency and lust, particularly in cases where some female engage in sexual violence by seducing male lecturers or are lured into sexual violence by their male counterpart in the expectation of receiving undeserved grades on With this context in mind, this study will explore the sexual violence in Bayelsa and Rivers states from 2010-2020.
