Breaking news-Nigerian lawmakers refuse incarceration as punishment for rapists.

#news#

The House of Representatives has voted against a prayer seeking to recommend castration for rapists.

The House, at the plenary on Thursday, considered and adopted a motion on the rising cases of sexual violence in Nigeria.

A member, Mr James Faleke, had recommended that persons found guilty of rape should be castrated.

Just before the prayer was subjected to a voice vote, the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, however, asked what would happen to an older female who rapes a younger male.

The comment was said to have generated a lot of noise in the chamber, as reported by Punch. At the end of it the Naysayers have it.
