Kano Assembly Proposes Castration For Rapists
The Kano State House of Assembly, on Wednesday, commenced the process to further amend the State’s Penal Code amendment (No.12), the law of 2014, so as to provide for castration, as penalty for rape offenders in the state.
During the plenary session presided over by the Speaker, Abdulazeez Gafasa, the majority of the Assembly members were unanimous in the decision.
While calling for the review of the law to further reflect a harsher punishment for rapists in the state, Al-hassan emphasised that the current 14 years jail-term punishment for offenders is not enough.
“I believe this is the only measure to be taken to end the rampant cases of rape in our society as it is so worrisome.
“I also want to appeal to the House to look into the security challenges so as to strengthen their efforts in tackling the rape cases in the state,” he said.
