Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, has advocated for capital punishment for any individual convicted of rape or sexual assault.

In a report by Vanguard Newspaper, Ita-Giwa advised that the only way to end rape and sexual assault is by ensuring convicted rapists get  castrated.

Speaking at the ‘Magnenta and Black Art & Fashion for Charity’ at the British Council, Lagos Ita Giwa stressed further that imprisoning rapist is not enough justice as castrating convicted rapist will serve as deterrence to intending rapists.

In her words, "If I were a judge and a man is brought to court for raping a child, he will receive capital punishment. But I will say, `don’t kill him, rather let him live his life in pain, let his organ be cut off’.

'He should not be allowed the pleasure of using that organ anymore. If the organ is not cut off, at the end of his term in prison, he will use it on other children. Fortunately for them, I’m no longer in the Senate  but I will find a way to get it into the chamber. This is the proper way to end the evil of rape in the society,' she said.

Ita-Giwa, represented Cross River in the Senate and later served as Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
