The Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, has advocated the death penalty for rape and related offences.
Tallen made her stand public during the inauguration of the National Cooking Gas and Tree Planting project held in Girei town, Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa on Friday.
The minister also advocated stiff penalty for child labour offences and other dehumanising treatment against children.
“Nigerian women and children are very grateful to Mr President for spotlighting their issues as crucial to national development.
“I, therefore, advocate for both death sentence for rapists and the stiff penalty for child labour offences and other dehumanising treatment against children,” Tallen said.
