Rape/Defilement Cases of Minors in Nigeria.

In recent times, Headlines adorning pages of Nigerian Newspapers are saddening and heartbreaking! Headlines like' 472 KIDS RAPED IN LAGOS' CHILD RAPE IN KANO ON THE INCREASE' NINE YEAR OLD PUPIL TELLS COURT HOW HER TEACHER RAPED HER' And lots more cannot but left people wonder if the world is not coming to an end. Rape cases have gone beyond between two adults these days< but defilement is the word when an innocent nine year old is being raped by a close relative or teacher! At this juncture, I think penalty must be stiffer for culprits. The emotional trauma is better imagined for victims. Arise! Advocate siffer penalty for Rapists, especially when it involves minors. And please, let us stop cover up for offenders all in the name of protecting or maintaining the family name! Think about it!
