The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), and other related offences has called for the castration of any body found guilty of rape.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Friday, the Director-General of NAPTIP, Julie Okah-Donli, said they would open a sex offender register where convicted rapists would be “named and shamed, and their details shared with embassies and popular workplaces nationwide”.
The DG, said they have set up task forces in the 36 states and Abuja to curtail rape and child abuse and urged Nigerians to report rape and sexual violence, adding that rapists they will push for the castration of rapists.
“There is a law somewhere in the United States where it was agreed that rapists would begin to be castrated. I just pray that we can push that law so that we can begin to castrate rapists. This is so that they will never rape again.
“As part of the measures to minimize rape and sexual violence in the country, NAPTIP has concluded plans to commence advocacy visits to state governments and other partners to adopt and domesticate the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act.’’
