Spread the love

The Director-General of The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Julie Okah-Donli says boys are more vulnerable to rape because we are more focused on the girls.
She said this at the flag-off of the ‘Cover me’ campaign aimed at exposing perpetrators of child abuse, advocate for stricter punishment for rapists, and advocate for stronger mechanisms for preventing approach on Saturday June 27.

“I do not advocate for capital punishment of death sentence because it will make rapists become brutal because they will not want to leave witnesses and it will also encourage jungle justice with people using it to accuse and kill people falsely.

“Boys are more vulnerable to rape because we tend to focus more on girls so we need to focus on all our children. Now you see a lot of silly videos with people sharing and reposting, If you send it to me I will arrest you for child pornography, anyone who stigmatizes against victims will be punished. We need to make people know that we are serious.

“During the lockdown, a lot of things were revealed to us, we realized that most of the reports we got were from observant neighbours, and not parents.” she said.

  1. Until lawmakers enact strict law, executive sign and judiciary carry out the law accordingly, without that perpetrators won’t stop carrying out this dastardly act. They should be dealt with severely if caught.

  2. For the issue of rape to be properly addressed, there need to be a reorientation starting from the laws, then to the parents and then to the male and girl gender
    One sided approach won’t serve well in a long run
