“The incidence of people going to report rape cases to the police only to turn around to withdraw such cases is increasing.
“Parents are advised to report cases of violation of their children and wards to the police and not withdraw such cases until justice is served.
“Withdrawing cases of violation from the law serves as an impetus for perpetrators to continue in the crime,’’ Adeleye said.
