Mamora recommends penile amputation for rapists

Dr Olorunimbe Mamora, the Minister of State (Health), has suggested penile amputation as punishment for the rape offence in Nigeria.

Describing it as “total penile amputation”, Mamora said that the punishment is to place a check on the  increase in the rate of rape in the country.

He attributed the increase during the lockdown to the reduction in socialisation. He also pointed out that solving a 10 year old rape case will be very difficult as it is no longer fresh.

He recommended total penile amputation as punishment for rapists because a woman might not be able to get over an incident of rape her entire life.

Mamora said,

“I had argued this at a forum before and I said without any reservations that if for the consideration for global approach to de-emphasising capital punishment, then what to me should be the minimum is total penile amputation because a woman that has been raped may never get over it in her entire life.

I think that it would appear that the incident has increased within this period of COVID-19, which may just be a factor of people being kept at home because of the lockdown; socialising has greatly reduced and like it is said, an idle mind is the devils workshop.

People cannot vent their excitement as before, where people can go to clubs, bars and all that and be able to express themselves. Yes, there must be factors that must be responsible for this upsurge of rape at this point in time, but there should be no excuse."
