Kano Govt. Launch Sexual Offender Database

 

The launching which took place recently at the High Court of Justice, with support from RoLAC and EU, is said to be a register documenting any reported, arraigned, and the convicted case of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) as provided by the law. The SOD will also provide data on convicted persons to be made available for the public directly on the website while reported, arraigned but not convicted cases will be available but only on demand.

Declaring the SOD open, the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Nura Sagir-Umar lamented over the level of recurrence of the menace, calling for the establishment of a gazette that will be placed at the Local Government Offices, Ministry of Women Affairs, and the High Court for the public to see.

“I advise that a committee be formed that will include all stakeholders that will prepare and get the records gazetted and the names of the offenders are printed out and posted at the Local Government Areas, Ministry of Women Affairs, and even the High Court in order to shame offenders and control the menace” he stated
