The Kwara Government has warned that jail-term awaits people caught in child-trafficking, child or pedophiles in the state.
Dr Asiata Saka said that the government was currently taking care of some children abused by a pedophile father as well as abandoned triplets.
“We have about 22 children in the state’s reception centres and 40 abandoned babies with the Life Empowers Anchors Hope (LEAH) Foundation belonging to Mrs Omolewa Ahmed, Kwara Governor’s wife.”
Saka, who represented Mrs Ahmed at the party, also stressed the need for children to be adequately catered for and protected.
She explained that the ministry had various departments such as the orphanage, juvenile delinquent and child-trafficking departments to take care of children’s affairs in the state.
