Director-General, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Julie Okah-Donli, says anyone justifying rape in Nigeria will be arrested.
She gave the warning in a chat with journalists on Wednesday in Abuja.
Okah-Donli lamented that parents were not doing enough to take care of their wards and children, NAN reports.
The official said 90 percent of rape cases were committed by uncles, fathers and relations.
Okah-Donli disclosed that NAPTIP plans to meet the Ministry of Justice on the establishment of a special court to try rapists.
She advocated the need to educate Nigerians on rape issues.
Okah-Donli urged Nigerians to report cases via NAPTIP social media handles on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
