​The Nasarawa State Chapter of Nigerian Association of Women Journalists, NAWOJ, has called for the prosecution of two men, including a policeman, for allegedly raping two minors.

 

In a statement by the NAWOJ chairperson in Nasarawa State, Tina Cyril, the association expressed disgust over the alleged rape of the nine-year-old and the five-year-old by the suspects.

The NAWOJ leader said it would monitor the handling of the two cases to logical conclusions and expressed its commitment to the protection of the rights of women and children.
