The federal government has commenced ‘name and shame’ of convicted rapists in Nigeria.
Julie Okah-Donli, Director General, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), published names and photographs of some persons found guilty.
The official said more names would be published after such persons were convicted.
Her post on Twitter Sunday night included convicts’ addresses, offences and year of conviction.
She tweeted: “Here are the identities of convicted sex offenders as seen on the Nigeria Sex Offender Register. @naptipnigeria is determined to naming and shaming all sex offenders. More names will be published as the convictions keep coming.”
Six persons were convicted in 2019 and four were sentenced in 2020.
All were arraigned on charges of incest and rape.
They are Adenekan Adegboyega, Friday Elijah, Shehu Abubakar, Asateru Gabriel, Emeka Akile.
Others are Vincent Akande, Abdulkareem Yahaya Danmallam, Olaoluwa David Ajibade, Yusuf Francis Kyemang and Basiru Adeyanju.
Last October, Justice Sybil Nwaka of an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court, sentenced Adegboyega to 60 years imprisonment.
Adegboyega was a supervisor at Chrisland School, Victoria Garden City (VGC) in Lagos.
The convict, now 49 years old, was found guilty of defiling a toddler.
In March 2018, the victim, “Child X”, testified in court.
She recalled that the acts occurred serially in 2016.
