Akinbile-Yussuf stated this at a press briefing to mark the first of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode's regime.
Akinbile-Yussuf explained that the 150 reported cases of sexual abuse were officially recorded, as there are many of such cases that were not reported.
The Commissioner further stated that 85 suspected rapists and paedophiles had been taken to court while the cases were still pending.
Apart from the rape cases, Akinbile-Yussuf said 31 babies, comprising 19 females and 12 males, abandoned by their parents, and were rescued in the last one year on the streets of Lagos.
“The Child Protection Unit is responsible for the rescue and referral of all abandoned babies and children in the state to orphanages and homes. It also carries out child audit on the registered orphanages to decongest the homes and discourage institutionalisation. A total of 31 babies, 19 females and 12 males, were rescued during the period under review.”
