The Lagos State Government has warned that those who are distributing footage of students of Chrisland Schools engaging in an “immoral act” risk a 14-year jail term.
“This is to reassure members of the public of the State Government’s commitment to safety and child protection. [This is] especially in ensuring that all child-centered institutions within the state, formulate and implement policies and systems that are compliant with the Executive Order (NO.EO/AAO8 of 2016), Lagos State Safeguarding and Child Protection Programme.
“We also use this medium to remind the general public of the implications pertaining to engaging in any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a child committing an offence.
“[They are] liable to a custodial sentence of 14 years. This includes producing, distributing, receiving, or possessing an image of child pornography,” it said.
