July 15, 2015 – Nollywood Actress Joke Silva Warns Nigerians Travelling Out Of Country Illegally, Says It Is Dangerous
Veteran actor Olu Jacobs’ wife, Joke Silva was hosted recently at Loral International Secondary School, Festac Town, Lagos, where she lectured students on the dangers of human trafficking and child abuse during an event organised by Patriotic Citizens Initiatives (PCI) in partnership with Loral International Schools.
Without minding words, Joke encouraged the pupils to play a part in breaking the culture of silence when abuse occurs. Exhorting them to be courageous and speak out, Joke said:
“Every time you keep quiet in the face of molestation and abuse, it means it can happen again and again. I can bet my last kobo that in this hall, there are young ladies and young gentlemen who have been abused and molested but never reported it.
“For those that want to travel out of the country illegally, there is no place like home. There is nothing wrong travelling out but when you travel illegally, you don’t have any safety net. Remember, our country may have its challenges but we all have to work together to make it a better country.”
