To encourage conversation on the issue of sexual harassment in secondary schools, and to ignite a change, TheCable Newspaper has launched #BreakTheSilence.

The hashtag is inspired by the undercover investigation of TheCable into schoolgirls pimping at the Federal Government Girls College (FGGC), Langtang, Plateau state.

Following the publication of the investigation, the leadership of the Unity Schools Old Students Association (USOSA), an umbrella body for all unity schools across the country, called for the prosecution of everyone involved in the incident.

In response, the national executives of the Old Girls Association of the Federal Government Girls College (FLOGA) Langtang, on Tuesday announced that a panel has been set up to investigate the abuse of students.

The #BreakTheSilence hashtag aims to further expose possible sexual harassment and pimping in secondary schools by giving victims the courage to speak out and end the anomaly.

Timbyen Amos Dashe, a former student of the school, has also come out to share her sexual harassment experience with a teacher. 

“Your denial can no longer hurt you as much as it would the girl you leave unprotected,” Dashe wrote in her account on Facebook.
