There has been lots of crimes within our country, and the case of sexual assault and rape is becoming alarming. It worries me when a male counterpart takes advantage of a female due to some circumstances and vice versa.
As a victim, I urge you to tell your story to the world for necessary prosecution. It is your right to get justice in the country according to section 357 of the criminal code and also section 282 of the penal code. You will find out on my video what The Law states about rape/assault victims.
Most at times, the rapist get away with the crime due to lack of concrete evidence. Therefore, they have to be some sort of legit prove that can be filed legally against the perpetrators without contradicting your testimony as a victim.
Here are tips of the things you need to do or not do if assaulted, to preserve the evidence against the perpetrator

Report to any police station around you.
P.S: Time is essential, every sexual assault should be reported within a time frame in-order to preserve all necessary evidence.
