No Lady Deserved To Be Raped, Legalise Stun Guns For Them, Monarch Tells Buhari
Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has advised the Federal Government to legalise the use of stun guns and pepper spray for females to defend themselves against rapists.
The monarch, in a press statement by his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, urged the government to consider other means of tackling rape apart from punishing rapists.
He said, “The reported cases of raping is alarming and call for a serious concert by responsible stakeholders. Apart from a constitutional penalty against rapists, I want to charge the government to consider the consider the legalisation of the use of stun guns and pepper spray by females as protective items against unapproved sexual attempts.
”Many ladies were raped and killed. I’ve strong trust that the items, when approved for females will protect them against such an unjust treatment and return sanctity to our society.
“By that, the constitutional provision is a long term punishment while pepper spray and stun gun are short term defence measure. The defence instruments could form part of females’ accessories in their handbags and purses.
There are training sessions available overseas even in South Africa for females to learn how to use it in warding off attackers.”
While condemning the increasing cases of rape in society, Oluwo said no lady deserves to be raped.
He said, “The spate of reoccurrences is unassuming. It must be checkmated through further constitutional legislations to invite sanity to our society and respect the dignity of Nigerian females.
Rapists are coward animals and not human. The trauma of their victims is an eternal curse of no remedy. Raped victims are no doubt mentally disturbed and emotional imbalance. When done with mutual consent and agreement, the two enjoin and enjoy in merriment.
