Nigeria bans Female Genital Mutilation

As there has been a global cry to abolish Female Genital Mutilation(FGM), Nigeria has made history by criminalizing the act. The ban falls under the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act 2015 that was passed in the Nigerian Senate on May 5 and recently put out into law.

I'm chuffed about this development..I hope other countries carrying out this horrific traditions follow suit.
