She added that it’s the sole responsibility of everyone to fight the monster called Rape.
She said; “Unless we get the laws changed on the legal punishment for rape; sexual predators and rape perpetrators will always keep destroying people’s lives without any serious consequences”.
“Heads have to roll instantly for such monsters to be repelled.”
According to her, “the existing laws are such that each state is autonomous in its dispensation of criminal laws.
“We need to begin the unrelenting advocacy and tenacious movement for each state in Nigeria to adopt extremely harsh laws, execution and punishment for rape offenders.”
“It might be difficult and slow for us to get 2/3rds of the National Assembly to vote for and pass these appropriately severe punishments into law.
“Even if this happens, it remains the independent right of each state to either adopt or ignore the bill if passed – at their own pace and convenience.”
