Child rape: Get­ting more dis­turb­ing by the day

Weekly Trust - - Views -

It looks as if ev­ery news­pa­per has at least one case of child rape re­ported in it, and some days even whole pages carry the sor­did sto­ries. I think it is high time the gov­ern­ment - through the NOA and Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion - be­gan a strong cam­paign against it. A spe­cial cur­ricu­lum from pri­mary school should make it clear that vi­o­la­tion of any kind is heinous and has con­se­quences. That way, from a young age, Nige­ri­ans for a strong no­tion that rape is wrong. I’m sure there are many other pos­si­ble solutions, but this is just my own fifty kobo.
