Former First Lady of Rivers State and a judge of the Rivers State High Court, Eberechi Nyesom-Wike, has advocated the amputation of people found guilty of d£filing minors.
Justice Wike, who is the wife of the immediate past Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, stated this on Tuesday on the sidelines of the 2nd National Conference of Family Court Judges, Magistrates, and other Family Court Practitioners in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
She insisted that the current p¥nishment isn’t drastic enough, adding that the move will deter sexual offenders from m%lesting minors. According to the judge, society should step up punishments for people who defile children beyond life imprisonment or a 14-year jail term.
“We should do much more. I think we should do something that will be really drastic, that will make them think twice before they do that. I cannot think of anything better than having legislation that whatever it is that whatever part of your body you use on a child while d£filing the child, that part should be c¥t off. If it is your finger, if it is your mouth, if it is your pr+vate part.
I think men will take it more seriously when you come up with such legislation. I hope a man in the House of Reps or Senate sponsors a bill like that.”
