Mr Dosunmi Akeem, Officer, Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Lagos State has urged teachers in the state to report every case of abuse in children to relevant authorities as soon as it is revealed by victims.
Mr Akeem who addressed teachers at the on-going Vanguard Children’s conference lashed out at teachers who do not take prompt action despite seeing visible signs on abused children.
“Some children come to school with bruises on their faces and bodies everyday and yet some of you teachers do not bother to ask questions. It is your duty to be vigilant and report cases of abuse once reported. You are mandated by law to report these cases and you must learn to recognise and protect abused children”
