According to THIS DAY, the chief judge gave the warning yesterday at the commemoration of the International Day of Zero Tolerance Against FGM 2022 in Ado Ekiti.

Speaking at the occasion, Justice Adeyeye, who was represented by the Acting Chief Registrar, Mr. Adesoji Adegboye, alleged that “some highly placed intellectuals in the state were promoters of this harmful practice.

“Henceforth, the judiciary would apply the law to bring perpetrators to justice to serve as deterrent to those who are involved in FGM.”

Frowning at the harmful practice, the Ekiti State First Lady, Mrs. Bisi Fayemi, lamented the prevalence of FGM, saying that she feel depressed to be discussing FGM after decades of advocacy against the practice. jamb results

She warned that the legal and punitive measures as enshrined in the 2019 Gender-Based Violence law were still subsisting.

She said: “There are sanctions in place because after persuasions for people to drop this bad habit, government may start sending culprits to Afao Road (correctional centre)”.

“Let us end the practice in our generation. We must not pass FGM to our children and grandchildren. Let us set up advocacy committee in the local government areas”.
