The Ekiti State Government has in furtherance to its policy of naming and shaming convicted sex offenders, published the identities of two sex offenders.
The action was taken by the Ekiti State Ministry of Justice and made available to AllNews on Tuesday.
According to the state's Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Olawale Fapohunda (SAN), it was the first set of publication of sex offenders in 2022.
Fapohunda had stated that the decision to carry out the action was because the state government had in recent times expressed concern about the increasing cases of sexual violence in the state.
The convicted sex offenders who were publicly name-shamed are Adebamigbe Samuel, a 37-year-old native of Ikere-Ekiti who was formerly a resident of no 37, Ajebamidele Area, Ado-Ekiti and Dayo Asiwaju, a 27-year-old native of Ikoro-Ekiti, formerly a resident in Ikoyi street, Ikere-Ekiti.
Adebamigbe is currently serving a life sentence in the Nigerian Correctional Centre, Ado-Ekiti, for the rape of a 13-year-old girl and has his name registered in the Ekiti State Ministry of Justice sex offenders directory.
