BAUCHI: State’s Law To Include Castration For Convicted Rapists

Bauchi State Government has stated that it would amend its laws to include castration for convicted rapists.

Bala Mohammed, Governor of Bauchi state, said that the rate of rape cases across the state is alarming and that the Violence Against Persons Prohibition bill which he recently signed into law will be taken to the State Assembly for an amendment to include the castration of rapists.

He disclosed this on Thursday in Bauchi when he received Dame Paulen Tallen, Minister of Women Affairs and Child Development, at the state house in Bauchi.

He said:

“The VAPP law has been signed and there are some impurities there and implementation is going to be very, very hard. I assure you that we will start the implementation.

”Areas where we find out that the punishments are not adequate the way Kaduna did, we will amend it to include those aspects so that castration will also be part of our own (VAPP law).

”Honestly, I think we better destroy the instrument of rape by going for castration because even when I pardon somebody, I discovered that he was a serial rapist.”
