The Only Way To End Rape Is Killing  Convicted  Rapist-Alaba Lawson

The Iyalode of Yorubaland, Chief Alaba Lawson has advocated  for capital purnishment for convicted rapists in the country.

She maintained  that she is ready to lead  women to the National Assembly for protest against  rape

Iyalode Lawson said this while featuring as a guest on a live radio programme in Abeokuta,  Ogun state.

She said  ” I am ready to lead women to the National Assembly to lobby our lawmakers to promulgate law that, will give room for stiff and drastic penalty for rapists. The law against rapists in this country is obsolete, and it is high time the law is reviewed”

She expressed worry over the high rape cases in recent times, stressing that the obsolete law against rape has been responsible for the increase of rape cases.

Iyalode of Egbaland  therefore maintained that there is need for the urgent review of the law with stiffer penalty for the offenders, not excluding death penalty.

The grand patron of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ogun State Council maintained that the families of rape victims should always speak out immediately to attract urgent attention from appropriate quarters

She  commended journalist for their roles towards fighting the menace, saying that for the work to be fruitful, the authorities should implement a stiffer penalty against the criminals.

According  to her, the best way to get rid of the menace is passing death sentence on the culprits.

“For me, the best solution to this menace is sentencing criminals to death. I can assure you if this is put in place, the criminals will desist, and let me also say this, the law on rape is obsolete, and it is high time it is review” she concluded
