Rape: Ogun Chief Judge Calls for State of Emergency
The Ogun state Chief Judge, Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu has renewed the call on government to declare state of emergency on rape cases across the country.
Justice Dipeolu stated this at the official inauguration of the Magistrate Court, Ido-Oke, Igbesa Land, Ado-Odo/Ota, Local Government Area of the State.
The Ogun state Chief Judge who expressed worry over the rising cases of rape in the country said the state would deal decisively and ruthlessly with rapists in the state.
Justice Dipeolu blamed the appalling side of rape on lackluster response of justice administrators and absence of institutional supportive system to help the victims.
She said that newly built Magistrate Court in the Area would also bring justice closer to the people and avert jungle justice.
