The Kaduna state House of Assembly has passed into law, a bid which approves castration as punishment for rapists in the state.
The Assembly gave the approval following the passage of a bill to amend the Kaduna state penal court law, 2017, by the lawmakers on Thursday, September 10. The assembly announced the approval on its Twitter handle but deleted the tweet afterward.
“The Bill Recommend total Castration for Rapist in the State,” the assembly’s deleted tweet read.
However, the majority leader of the assembly also tweeted about the development.
“A bill to amend the Kaduna State Penal Court Law No.5 of 2017 has yesterday 09/09/2020 been pass into Law by @Kadlegislature. The Bill Recommend total Castration for Rapist in the State.”
