    I think it all depends on legislation and the level of education of our people especially the North. Many states are yet to adopt the 2003 Child Right Act into their state laws- this is 2020! Moreover minimum age of sexual consent in Nigeria is 11 years! So these are loopholes you know… We seem to have conflicting definition of who a child is!
