The Kaduna State House of Assembly has approved castration as punishment for persons convicted of rape in the state.
The development follows the passage of a bill to amend the Kaduna State Penal Court Law, 2017, by the lawmakers.
The bill was passed into law on Wednesday, according to an announcement made by the assembly via its Twitter handle on Thursday.
“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,” the tweet read.
Before now, the state’s penal law stipulates 21 years imprisonment for rape of an adult and life imprisonment in the case of a child.
It is not clear if the amended law provided punishments for female rapists in the state.
