10-Month Old Baby, Others Suffer Rape & Sexual Assaults In Lagos

0
Mirabel Centre, the first sexual assault referral centre
located in Lagos, Nigeria has recorded a total number of 739 cases of victims
of rape and sexual assaults since it opened its doors to the public. Worthy of mention among them all are the instances of a
10-month-old baby sexually molested by the father and a 70-year-old woman raped
by a boy that run errands for her in the neighbourhood.
Making this and other revelations yesterday in Lagos, Managing
Partner, Partnership for Justice Mrs. Itoro Eze-Anaba said the increase in
reported cases of sexual violence, particularly, child sexual abuse had become
a major public concern in the country. She further lamented that the
perpetrators of sexual violence in the country act with impunity due to
corruption and incompetency in investigation and prosecution of such cases.
Locations with the highest number of assaults include:
Kosofe- 91, Alimosho -128, Ikeja – 56, Oshodi-Isolo – 72 and Agege – 80, she
stated.
