"The ECOWAS court has delivered judgment in a suit filed by an aircraftwoman who was raped by her superior officer and dismissed from the Nigerian Air Force after she lodged a complaint.
The court awarded $200,000 (N90 million) to the applicant (name withheld).
In addition to the monetary awards, the court "mandated the Air Force to investigate and prosecute Vibelko for the rape of the victim." (Emphasis added.)
In the Sahara Reporters article, further down it gives this information,
"An order of this Honourable Court compelling the defendant, its agents, organs, servants, privies or by whatever name called to pay over to the Applicant the sum of $20, 000,000.00 (about N9 billion) only as aggravated and punitive damages that will serve as a deterrent to the defendant.
