With the passage of the Sexual Offences Bill, 2015 by the senate on Wednesday, the legal age to have sex in Nigeria has been pegged at 11 years and above. The bill prescribes life imprisonment for rapists and those who have sexual intercourse with children (below 11 years).

The President of the Senate, Sen. David Mark congratulated Sen. Chris Anyanwu, the sponsor of the Bill and expressed delight on the efforts of the committee to evolve a stronger law against sexual violations. Anyanwu listed some of the sexual offences captured by the bill to include gang rape, lacing drinks with drugs with intent to sexually abuse, deliberately infecting partner with HIV and other diseases. Others include child sex tourism, sexual harassment and prostitution of persons with mental disabilities. Anyanwu added that passage of the bill ?? is indeed a fulfilment of my mission in the Upper Chamber.??
