Bauchi Rape Law Will Be Amended To Include Castration Of Convicted Rapists – Gov. Bala Mohammed

Bauchi Rape Law Will Be Amended To Include Castration Of Convicted Rapists – Gov. Bala Mohammed (Updated: 2 years ago)


Bauchi state governor, Bala Mohammed, says just like Kaduna state, his administration will soon amend the state’s laws to include castration for convicted rapists.

The governor said with the alarming rate of rape cases in the state, 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 when he received the Minister of Women Affairs and Child Development, Dame Paulen Tallen, at the Government House, Bauchi on Thursday, September 24.

“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.”

he said On September 16, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna has signed into law the new State Penal Code (Amendment) Law 2020, which stipulates surgical castration and removal of Fallopian tubes for any male or female found guilty of raping a child in the state.
