The ugly menace of rape is currently invading our fading culture of decency, discipline and fear of God. Rape related issue is becoming too rampant in Nigeria. it is time the enabling laws against rape is revisited and stringent penalty imposed. I think if the method of trials of rapist is regulated to a simple proof rather than the many clauses and burden place on rape victim, trials and conviction of a rapist would go a long way to discourage the perpetrators of this evil act.
Just yesterday, according to Vanguard Newspaper, a 16-year-old girl (name withheld) has been reportedly hospitalized after she was allegedly raped to coma by some unknown men in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The incident occurred at 8p.m. on Monday on her way back home from where she was sent on an errand.
a popular actress (name withheld) who broke the news through her post on the Facebook: “A-16-year-old girl from Abeokuta in Ogun State was sent on errand last night (Monday) around 8 p.m. to the nearby street.
“On her way back home, hefty men ambushed her and got her raped till coma. As we are posting this right now, she is lying in sick bed at Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta.”
The government should fight this menace head on before Nigerian turns like Indians
