ABSTRACT

          Sexual abuse, which may take different forms, has become a major factor causing multiple problems ranging from social, physical, emotional to health related conditions. Many victims have died in the process while others had developed impaired social relationship. Upon this backdrop, this study investigated the factors responsible for sexual abuse as expressed by students of Federal College of Education, Abeokuta, Ogun State. The simple random sampling technique was employed in selecting the 300 respondents that participated in the study. The instrument used to gather information for the study was a questionnaire tagged “Factors Responsible for Sexual Abuse Questionnaire (FRSAQ)”. It consisted of two sections. (A and B) Section A contains items on personal information of respondents while Section B has 20 items on factors responsible for sexual Abuse. Four null hypotheses were formulated for the study while the data collected were analysed using frequency counts percentages, test and analysis of variance (ANOVA) statistics, all hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The results obtained revealed that sexual abuse occurs because of indiscriminate view of pornographic video and print materials. Indecent dressing is the highest categorized factor that causes sexual abuse. Out of the four hypotheses only one was rejected; thus, gender, religion and age did not influence the expression of the respondents. However, students from different levels are significantly different in their expression. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that emphasis should be placed on sex education. Also, various agencies professional bodies, civil society organizations, religions groups and government should actively participate in the campaign against sexual abuse. Counsellors, especially, should also be fully engaged in the strategies to eradicate sexual abuse.
