The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) has published the names and photographs of some persons convicted of sexual offences in Nigeria.
Julie Okah-Donli, director-general of NAPTIP, who published the list over the weekend, said more names would be published as soon as they were convicted.
The list contained the names of ten males, their addresses, offences and year of conviction.
A breakdown showed that six persons were convicted in 2019, while the remaining four were sentenced in 2020; they were arraigned on charges of incest and rape.
“Here are the identities of convicted sex offenders as seen on the Nigeria Sex Offender Register. @naptipnigeria is determined to naming and shaming all sex offenders. More names will be published as the convictions keep coming,” she wrote.
They are listed as Friday Elijah, Shehu Abubakar, Asateru Gabriel, Adenekan Adegboyega, and Emeka Akile.
