New York Daily News: New rape law OKs castration for male offenders, fallopian tubes removal for female offenders in Nigerian state


Listen to this article

The governor of the Nigerian state of Kaduna has signed a new law authorizing surgical castration for convicted male rapists and the removal of fallopian tubes for female offenders — with an even harsher punishment for cases involving underage victims. Anyone found guilty of raping a child under 14 will face the death penalty, up from a maximum sentence of life in prison under the previous state law.
