UNICEF warns against violence on children

The United Nations Children’s Fund has commended the federal government and security agents over the rescue of abducted children in Ondo State.

DAILY POST reports that the children and some adults were rescued from a church where they were waiting for rapture.

A statement signed by UNICEF Communication Specialist, Geofery Njoku noted that children must never be held against their will under any circumstance.

It condemned violence against children, warning that a society is measured by how it treats its children.

UNICEF also tasked the government to increase efforts at protecting children from every form of violence.

UNICEF commended the rescue of about 27 children held against their will in a church in Ondo State.

“Children should not be targets of violence in whatever guise. Violence against children is condemnable and we call on governments to redouble efforts to protect children against all forms of violence. A society’s health is measured by how it treats its children,” he said.
