ASUU Seeks Life Sentence For Rape Offenders

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says death sentence and castration of rape offenders is not sufficient to end incessant rape cases in the country.
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, the ASUU National President, in a statement today said imposing death sentence and castration on rapists, was just like going to an extreme without addressing root causes of the problem.
Ogunyemi advocated a life sentence for rape offenders rather than death sentence, saying the offender could end up becoming an advocate against rape after undergoing reforms in the prison.
He described rape as a form of pervasion and abnormal way of behaving caused by psychological dislocation or mental problem exhibited by the rapist.
According to him, the social environment the nation finds itself also creating avenues for such act to be perpetrated.
He urged the federal government to grant free education and health care services to Nigerians to enable them pay more attention in bringing up their children as well as reduce pressure on family units.
