Sex offenders register opened in Ekiti to protect women and young girls

The Ekiti State Government has opened the Sexual Offenders Register for convicted sexual offenders in the state.
On Monday, the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Olawale Fapohunda made the announcement during a visit of the Gender-based Violence Prohibition Law management committee led by the wife of the state governor, Bisi Fayemi who is the chairperson of the committee; and Commissioner for Women Affairs, Social Development and Gender Empowerment, Fola Richie-Adewusi.
Richie-Adewusi stressed that the sexual offenders register would make certain that culprits were ostracised from the society.
“This step will serve as a deterrent to men who find pleasure in assaulting women and young girls,” he said.
