Nigeria: Child Sexual Abuse - Rights Group Takes Campaign to Public Officials

Child rights group, Jose Foundation Nigeria, has taken an awareness campaign to public institutions to raise awareness among government officials on the dangers of child sexual exploitation.

The foundation, in a statement by its president, Martins Abhulimhen, said the campaign was to end child sexual molestation in Nigeria.

"The foundation distributes book titled, "Child sexual exploitation after Rotherham, Understanding the Consequences and Recommendations for Practice", to sink the message to the hearing of all key stakeholders in Nigeria," he said.

The 310-page book, co-authored by Adele Gladman and Angie Heal, gives an insight to the horrific experiences of organised child sexual exploitations.

Survivors of child sexual abuse shared experiences to help professionals get a better understanding of sexual exploitation, abuse and the process with which it was groomed.

The foundation urged the ministries of health, justice and education not to relent in their efforts to educate Nigerians and serve justice to child offenders in the country.
