A total of 55 minors have been sexually assaulted between March and May this year in Zaria.

Hajiya Aisha Ahmed, Manager, Sexual Assault Referral Centre, Gambo Sawaba General Hospital, Kofar Gayan, Zaria, made the disclosure when she led a team on a courtesy visit to the Area Commander, Nigeria Police Zaria Area Command, in his office.

She said the centre had received 16 reported cases of sexual assault on minors in March, 11 in April and 28 in May, this year.

Hajiya Ahmed, who attributed the rising cases to lack of punitive measures on the victims of the assault, urged the police to come to their aid by arresting and prosecuting suspects in accordance with the law.
