In 2015 we saw a step father of 65 years defile a 13 years old girl or should I say minor? His excuse was blatant. According to him: “she gave her consent” and this atrocious perversion had extended over a period of 2 years. This sort of perversion or child molestation happens in great numbers here in Nigeria but this is actually not my concern.
My concern is about the law that should imprison these men but stand idle, watching minors suffer sexually in the hands of rapists and child molesters.
Thus my message is simple, in 2016 the Nigerian law officials should do better, arrest more of these offenders and make the prison yards their home. Unless this path is taken, I fear that sexual offences would increase even in 2016.
