sexual offenders register

27 Nov 2019
Nigeria launches its first national sexual offenders register, set up a database of those convicted for sexual violence in a move seen as an important step towards clamping down on abuse. The "Sexual Offender Register" will contain the names of all those prosecuted for sexual violence in Africa's most populous nation since 2015. The record will be available online to better help the public, state bodies and police conduct background checks and identify repeat offenders.
