El-Rufai signs castration law for rapists

Governor Nasir El-Rufai has signed the Kaduna State Penal Code (Amendment) Law 2020 which provides for stiff penalties, including
surgical castration for convicted men who raped children below 14 years
.
The law, the first of its type in Nigeria, also provides for bilateral salpingectomy for female convicts. This involves the removal of the woman’s fallopian tube.
Governor El-Rufai announced that he had signed the law today.
The law amends the penal code No.5 of the state, which was passed in 2017.
