Rapists will be surgically castrated and anyone who rapes a child will face the death penalty under new laws in Nigerian state, Your Content has learned.

Anyone raping a child under age 14 will face the death penalty under the new legislation.

It follows public anger over a recent increase of rapes amid Covid-19 restrictions, which prompted the nation’s state governors to declare a state of emergency.

Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai said the ‘drastic penalties are required to help further protect children from a serious crime’.

Reported cases of rape in Nigeria have risen dramatically during the months of coronavirus restrictions.
