Tallen Prescribes Capital Punishment for Rape

Pauline Tallen

Tallen made the prescription as a guest at the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abuja.

She said that only capital punishment and other forms of punishment commensurate with the inhuman crime of rape would act as deterrent to rape.

The minister, who expressed the commitment of her ministry to protection and promotion of women rights, said that rape had ravaged many women.

Tallen, however, blamed the slow judicial system as responsible for continued rape and other forms of violence against women.

She urged the judicial system to rise up to the occasion of rapid justice dispensation to not only eradicate rape but restore confidence in the judiciary.

“She said: “Slow justice system is responsible for persistent violence against women and girls.” (NAN)
