The First Lady of Nasarawa State Governor Hajiya Silifat Abdullahi has stressed the need for decisive measures against perpetrators of rape and other sexual violence especially involving minors.

Hajiya Silifat stated this at a news briefing in Lafia while receiving the parents of a three months old baby who was defiled by a 27 year old man in Adogi village of Lafia Local Government Area of the state.

According to her, she was heartbroken on hearing about the news of the defilement of the three months old baby.

She, however, called on the law enforcement agencies to ensure justice was done to the baby and other children who had suffered sexual violence in the state to serve as a deterrent to those in the habit of such act.

Hajiya Silifat Abdullahi added that she had offset the medical bill incurred on the treatment of the baby at the Jos University Teaching Hospital, Plateau State.
