Kaduna Assembly legalise castration of rapists

Rapists in Northern Nigeria may now have to ponder the consequence of  their actions.

The Kaduna State House of Assembly has just approved castration as punishment for anyone found guilty of rape in the state. The decision was reached at Thursday’s plenary of the lawmakers.

State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai had in July said the justice system of the state will no longer grant bail to rapists. El-Rufai disclosed this when a group of women advocates against rape and injustice paid him a visit at the Government House, Kaduna.
