Reps Reject Castration As Punishment For Rapists

House of Representatives, at the plenary today, has voted against a prayer seeking to recommend castration for rapists in Nigeria.

This was after Mr. James Faleke, a member of the house had recommended that persons who are found guilty of rape should be castrated.

During a voice vote on Thursday, the Speaker of the house, Femi Gbajabiamila, asked the house ‘what would happen to an older female who rape a younger male.’

After putting it to vote, the nays had the highest vote.
