The problem of rape is becoming increasingly common in Nigeria, where there have been reports of rape of women in different parts of the country lately.
One of them is a 12-year-old girl who told police in northwestern Jigawa State that some men had spent two months raping her in turns
Meanwhile, last week, some people were accused of killing a university student after being raped in Edo state southern Nigeria.
Child rights activists in Nigeria feel that child rape cases in the country will continue to be tackled if the government does not impose capital punishment on offenders.
