AKWA IBOM JAILS 23 RAPISTS, APPROVES GENDER BASED REFERRAL CENTRES

The Akwa Ibom State Government has sent 23 rapists to jail.


Gloria Edet, the State Commissioner of Agriculture and Women Affairs, disclosed this while speaking with newsmen on Saturday, June 13, 2020.


Edet said the incessant rape cases in the country and State is becoming alarming and leaves a scar on the girl child.


“We’ve received reports of rape cases in the country and Akwa Ibom State is not left out, even though in Akwa Ibom State, the law is being implemented and God has helped us to jail over twenty-three rapists.


The number of rape cases is becoming alarming every day and I am calling on the citizens to report incidences of rape and other violent crimes against the female gender to law enforcement agents and other relevant government agencies for prompt intervention,” Edet said.


She added that, in a bid to curtail the increasing cases of rape and other various crimes against the feminine gender, the State Government has approved Gender-Based Violence Referral Centres.
