Editor’s Note: There are many unreported crimes in Nigeria, especially sex crimes, child abuse to violence against women. Pedophiles are known and allowed to live where vulnerable children are. Rapist are pointed at by victims ‘ That guy raped me when i was this or that age.’ You most likely be told to shut up and never speak of such again or worst ‘ Are you not ashamed, that guy raped you, what were you doing in his house’
A BROKEN SOCIETY!….When will children and women ever be made to feel heard and safe…
