  1. Government has not done anything regarding to this issue as far as I am concine, FG is slow when it comes to dealing of cases like this. Sexual harassment in Nigeria is a minor case, instead to be detained, he is rather being suspended. In Europe when caught in this kind case your case will be treated at the law court immediately if found guilty you will be jailed..
