Nollywood Actress and mother-of-one, Tonto Dikeh, has suggested that a death sentence is the most suitable judgement for a proven sex offender/rapist.
This is coming as she continues to conndemn the alleged inhuman act of her colleague, Baba Ijesha who was accused of raping a minor 7 years ago and attempted to defile her again few weeks back.
“In Nigeria, cases of rape are fast assuming a threatening dimension that requires urgent intervention. Rape, like other forms of violence against women, is an infringement on women’s rights, privacy, self-preservation and dignity. There is little or no policy or law that protect the victims as they are most times blamed, stigmatized and humiliated by society if it is brought to the public domain. This hinders victims from embracing a mindset of reporting such an inhumane crime to the appropriate authorities.
“I believe that any person found guilty of rape should be sentenced to death either by hanging, firing squad, lethal injection or electrocution. I would also recommend castration. Rape cases and sexual molestations have become the order of the day, and the victims are not getting enough justice. Most of these perpetrators still walk freely,” she told Saturday Beats.
