Lamenting on the increase in sexual abuse cases in the country, Adeleye however, urged victims to always speak out and appealed to stop parent withdrawing cases out of victimization.

“We are aware that cases of violation and abuse are increasing. There’s a huge increase in these kinds of crimes, especially against children. 

“The incidence of people going to police, reporting and withdrawing the case is also increasing. And we want to draw the attention of all parents, that if your child is a victim of violation, report the case to the police and do not withdraw it, because when you withdraw the case, it gives the perpetrator the leeway to continue to do it and also do it to other children.
