FGM takes place for many different complex cultural and religious beliefs and is associated with a transition into adulthood. Perpetrators of this illegal act also claim FGM is for hygiene reasons, honour and survival, the need to de-sexualise women and purification.

A child who has been subjected to FGM may experience difficulty in walking, urinating, sitting and they will be in a lot of pain.

FGM is an offence in Nigeria and MUST be reported to the Police.
