Prosecute Bandits For Raping, Killing Children, Women- UNICEF Urges FG

UNICEF in Nigeria has urged the Federal Government to prosecute bandits responsible for heinous acts of murder and rape against women and children.

During a press briefing in Maiduguri, the Country Representative of UNICEF in Nigeria, Cristian Munduate Cristian, emphasized the need for strong actions against those responsible for abducting school children, harming women and teachers, and sexually assaulting young schoolgirls.

She called for an enhanced judicial system and emphasized the importance of putting an end to these barbaric acts, ensuring a safe environment for children to attend school without fear of abduction or sexual assault.

She said, “So, yes it is bad. You can read these on a daily basis on the number of attacks on the community and schools. Just a couple of days ago, teachers were attacked and unfortunately, they were murdered. This aspect requires immediate action.

“It is not acceptable that bandits are not taking to courts and they have been assaulting, killing children and women; abducting and raping etc. It scares me, if there is any process, I think there is no proper punishment for these people legally.

“We have international laws and also a legal system. Of course, the country has their national laws and these laws have to be applied.”
