The Fight Against Rape, Genital Mutilation etc



Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who was also at the forefront of the fight for the Freedom of Information bill which was later enacted into law, sponsored the bill against rapists.

The House of Representatives yesterday Tuesday March 5th approved life imprisonment for any person convicted of rape. They also approved a minimum of 20 years without an option of fine for persons convicted of gang raping someone.

She also approved 25 years imprisonment for any person who attempted to use chemical, biological or any harmful liquid on another person. (e.g pouring acid on anyone). 
Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa is known for her good works and contribution in the House of Representatives, she is really a role model.

The bill also approved 4 years in jail or a
fine not more than N200,000 or both for any person convicted of performing female circumcision and general mutilation or engaging someone to carry it out. Aiding female circumcision attracts N100, 000 or two years in jail or both.

  1. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a
    little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Thank you!
