House of Assembly member representing Sanga Constituency at the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Mrs Comfort Amwe has pushed for death penalty or removal of Manhood for rapists. According to her, these are among the measures that can forestall the risisng cases of rape in the country, especially on innocent Children.
The lawmaker bore her mind in an exclusive interview with Journalists yesterday, saying, only capital punishment would send a strong signal to other intended culprits.
Adding that, “Some of the desk officers in the Police Station who are saddled with the responsibility of handling rape cases are mostly compromised and subjecting the victims to unnecessary hardship by feeding the culprits.
“For an offender who inflicted severe pains and trauma on minors including her Parents would be asked to bring money or food for the offender, stressing it is unacceptable to any sane conscience.”
It is so disheartening to see even minors are not spared, disclosing a six Months year old baby was raped to death in Kaduna recently.
