On Wednesday, July 15 2020 members of the Kano State Assembly embraced Casteration as the punishment for anyone guilty of Rape.
The adoption initiated a process to further amend the State’s Penal Code amendment (No.12), Law of 2014. Nuraddeen Alhassan (APC-Rano) had sought for a review of the law as he stated that the present 14 year jail punishment was not enough.
“Therefore, I am calling on the House to recall the law and amend it, to provide castration punishment for rapists.”
“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 issues, so as to strengthen their efforts in tackling the rape cases in the state.”
Alhassan who also said that if parents can reduce children hawking as this has been in most cases the cause, so as to curb the rate at which the rape cases are increasing because most rapists use this as an opportunity to lure their victims.
