Police lament withdrawal of charges against rape culprits.

 

Police in Kano State on Saturday appealed to relatives of rape victims to stop withdrawing charges against culprits.

Police spokesman in the state, SP Abdullahi Haruna-Kiyawa, told the News Agency of Nigeria that withdrawing charges filed against rape culprits was not serving the course of justice.

He expressed regret that relatives of victims often withdrew charges to settle out of court.

Haruna-Kiyawa said the police had secured conviction of some rape culprits, while others were still being prosecuted and urged members of the public to report rape cases promptly.
