Reps oppose castration as punishment for rapists

The house of representatives has rejected castration of persons convicted of rape.

At Thursday’s plenary session, the lawmakers voted against castration as punishment for rapists as suggested by James Faleke from Lagos state.

The lawmakers, however, called for stiffer penalties against persons found guilty of rape. They also asked the federal government to launch a more effective campaign against rape and other forms of sexual violence against women.
