Rape is a point out, not a family challenge in Nigeria. This is what the police explained to me when I visited the Loved ones Aid Device setting up at Sango Ota Place Police Command in Ogun State, Friday, Oct 16, this calendar year.
Off system, I know this is real. But, in Nigeria with about 80million of the estimated 203million men and women residing down below the poverty line and all sorts of cultures and customs, how quite a few folks know this? Your guess is as good as mine.
Real truth is that rapists appear to be to be on rampage across states in our beloved region and the police are choked-up, sick-outfitted, underfunded, and badly motivated by the federal federal government to deal with rape, defilement, little one abuses, sexual violence, headlong.
In Ogun condition for instance, June this 12 months, Dapo Abiodun, governor of the state instructed the earth that his condition will be ruthless with rape cases.
Abiodun dropped this cherry news when Bamidele Abiodun, his wife led an anti-sexual and gender-centered rally led to his office environment at Oke Mosan in Abeokuta, Ogun condition.
The governor confident that conditions linked to violence and rape could be rapidly-tracked by public prosecution crew and offenders brought to guide.
5 months down the line, Monday Agbonikan, an assistant commissioner of law enforcement and commander for sango ota law enforcement command with authorization, aid and acceptance from Edward Awolowo Ajogun, the state law enforcement commissioner, has erected a loved ones aid device making for the law enforcement in his command.
The creating, from my results is about 80% percent functional and Bamidele Abiodun, spouse of Dapo Dapo Abiodun, governor of the point out. Kabiyesi of Sango Ota, as well as the chairman of Ado-Ota area federal government location, have been supportive of the undertaking.
It is owing to be formally commissioned Oct this year, even as function has commenced on the critical small business by the law enforcement of cleaning up Sango Ota of rapists and other criminals.
Also speaking, Yemisi Alli-Yaunaduo, officer-in-demand said in the final a single thirty day period, a male, who raped a 6-yr-old female and the father of the girl experimented with to bury the situation underneath the guise of becoming a spouse and children issue, is now cooling his toes at just one of the correctional facilities in the state.
Justice was also introduced of bear in some rape circumstances where victims ended up traced to Ijebu Ode, Akute, Ifo, Lagos, and so on.
The Sango police command FSU, has a nicely-geared up interrogation home, reception, offices, conveniences, marked toys, and so on.
Real truth is that the law enforcement officers hooked up to the device are shelling out their funds for logistics and welfare for the victims and the suspects for now. So, non-governmental companies as very well as other community spirited persons should appear to the assist of the police at Sango Ota command with cars, fiscal and other supports to do the position.
