Mirabel Centre, the first sexual assault referral centre located in Lagos, Nigeria has recorded a total number of 739 cases of victims of rape and sexual assault since it opened its doors to the public.
Worthy of mention among them all are the instances of a 10-month-old baby sexually molested by the father and a 70-year-old woman raped by a boy that run errands for her in the neighbourhood.

Making this and other revelations yesterday in Lagos, Managing Partner, Partnership for Justice Mrs. Itoro Eze-Anaba said the increase in reported cases of sexual violence, particularly, child sexual abuse had become a major public concern in the country.

She further lamented that the perpetrators of sexual violence in the country act with impunity due to corruption and incompetency in investigation and prosecution of such cases.

Locations with the highest number of assaults include: Kosofe- 91, Alimosho -128, Ikeja – 56, Oshodi-Isolo – 72 and Agege – 80, she stated.
