A delegate to the on-going National Conference, Yemi Fasominu, has called for a new law that would stipulate castration for men convicted of rape in Nigeria.Premium Times
Ms. Fasominu, a representative of Ondo State, gave the suggestion while speaking on the floor of the Conference on Monday.
She lamented that Nigerian women and the girl child have been at the receiving end of persistent violence from rapists and violent men in the country.
Ms. Fasominu, who spoke passionately on the matter, noted that hundreds of women are being raped all over the country on a daily basis.
Unless urgent steps are taken to halt the dangerous trend, she said, the situation would worsen.
