From Ibrahim M Bawa

The Police in Katsina State say it receives no fewer than 20 to 30 reports of rape of minors every month.

Salisu Agaisa, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, made this known while briefing newsmen in Katsina on Monday.

He said the command was concerned about the increasing rape cases.

“It is disheartening to note that most of the victims are underage girls who are hawkers’’, he added.

Mr. Agaisa said the rape resulted in the death of the victims in some cases while others were left with severe injuries.

He, therefore, urged the public to continue to assist the police with vital information about rapists and other criminals in the state.

The spokesman said the police was ready more than ever before to arrest and prosecute rapists to serve as deterrent to others.

He also urged parents to take proper care of their children so as to prevent them from being victims.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the state government amended the law against rape last year.

The new law provides for a minimum of 14 years or life imprisonment with a fine of N50,000 and compensation for victims by anyone found guilty of the offence.
