Nigeria’s House of Representatives reject castration as punishment for rapists

Nigeria’s House of Representatives has rejected castration as punishment for rapists.

The house on Thursday, June 4, deliberated on measures to curb the increasing numbers of rape cases in the country, the recent one being 18-year-old Barakat Bello.

Speaking on the floor of the House, Lagos State governor, Abiodun James Faleke, suggested castration as punishment for rapists.

His submission was shot down by speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, who questioned how the punishment will be meted out in a situation where a female is a culprit.

Even though the lawmakers could not reach a compromise on what the punishment for rapists should be, they all called for stiffer penalties against persons found guilty of rape, lindaikejisblog reported.


Uwaila Omozuwa, a 22-year-old first-year student of the University of Benin, was on May 27, raped and fatally wounded while reading inside Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) parish.

She died three days later, the same day that the Jigawa State Police Command announced the arrest of 11 men who had, at different times and on many occasions, allegedly raped a 12-year-old girl.

18-year-old Barakat Bello was found raped and stabbed to death at the back of her house in Akinyele area of Ibadan on Monday, June 1, 2020.
