Medical expert urges parents to monitor their children

Parents and guardians have been advised to monitor the kind of videos and photos their children watch online.
The Senior Medical Officer Ahiazu Mbaise LGA, Dr. Uche Udeh, who gave the advice recently, decried the high incidence of rape prevalent in the state, especially the defilement of minors and the dangers it portents to the society.
He cautioned against pornography, homosexualism and indecent dressing, and warned that these vices could promote promiscuity in the society.
Wondering what could push a male adult to deflower a minor, the medical practitioner lamented that even married adults with grown up children are often perpetrators of this bizarre and heinous crime. He called for all hands to be on deck to checkmate the ugly trend to avert impending doom.
The medical practitioner stressed the need to intensify the war against drug abuse and cultism, arguing that drugs and bad peer group influence have contributed greatly to the rise in social vices.
He regretted that most times, rape victims are maimed or killed after sex or gang rape and called for intense public enlightenment on the importance of guarding the children and stiffer penalties for offenders.
The Senior Medical Officer described as absurd cases of female adults raping teenage boys and implored parents and caregivers to also keep close watch on their male children.
