Rapists in Kaduna State to be castrated

Global day of prayer with Rev Chris Oyakhilome

The punishment for people found guilty of raping children below 14 years in Kaduna State would be surgical castration.

This is after Lawmakers in the state approved the punishment for suspects found guilty of such an offence henceforth.

However, Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna State still has to assent the bill before it becomes a law in the state.

Currently in Kaduna, the state penal law provides that child rapists are to serve life imprisonment while adult rapists bag 21 years sentence.

Nigeria’s federal law, on the other hand, states that between 14 years and life imprisonment would be the punishment for rapists.

Kaduna State life sentence for child rape and 21 years sentence was passed a few months back. Afterward, El-Rufai pushed for a stiff punishment. The governor lamented that convicts often rape more persons after serving their jail term.

Recently in Bauchi, Bala Mohammed apologized for granting state pardon to a serial rapist earlier this year.

Yusuf Bako, a 50-year-old man who had been imprisoned in 2001 and 2015 for separate rape offences was arrested again last week for raping a four-year-old girl inside a mosque in Bauchi metropolis.
