Gov El-Rufai's Wife Hajiya Ummi Seeks Law To Castrate Rapists....

Wife of Kaduna State Governor, Hajiya Ummi El-Rufai, yesterday appealed to the Kaduna State House of Assembly, KSHA, to establish a law that would ensure the castration of rapists in the state.

She raised alarm that there were three to five cases of rape from all parts of Kaduna on a daily basis.

Hajiya Ummi said an average of five rape cases, especially of minors were reported daily in Kaduna, saying severe penalty for rapists in the state penal code would serve as deterrent to others.

She visited the KSHA ahead of the public hearing on the bill for a law to amend the Kaduna state Penal Code 2017 after the bill scaled through the second reading.

The bill which sought to amend section 258 of the principal law was to be amended so as to make it more effective in protecting the citizens of the state particularly women and children against rape and other sexual violence.

“I am here to see how our respected lawmakers can expedite speedy passage of the amended bill on sexual violence. It is happening to our children and women every day. Our children and women need to be protected and that is why I’m seeking for the speedy passage of the bill,” she said.

“Already, the Governor is doing a lot to make Kaduna a save place for all citizens irrespective of their gender and with all hands on deck, that is possible.

“We have three to five cases of rape from all parts of Kaduna on a daily basis. I am saying this because I am directly involved having been working closely with groups of individuals working on sexual violence here in Kaduna.

“So, I believe, if we have this bill passed into law, our children and women in Kaduna will be safer than what we are seeing now. This is why we are calling on our lawmakers if possible, to ensure hash penalties include castration and death sentence to serve as deterrent to intending and existing rapists,” she said .

Speaker of the KSHA, Hon. Yusuf Zailani said the increase in reported cases of violence against children and women, was alarming.

He promised to give the bill a speedy passage into law by next week after the public hearing.

He said this was the first time a wife of a sitting governor would be interested in such an important bill.

“This is the first time we will be receiving a sitting governor’s wife coming to the Assembly to make a case of this magnitude. A case on rape for that matter.

“With evidence, you have shown to us in the presence of my honourable members, my body is weak. This is sad. This is terrible. We talk about our state first before Nigeria as a whole. We are in trouble. We need to move forward.

“I know the committee in charge are very serious people and will not compromise. I will not tell you what we are going to input into the bill but in the end, everybody will be happy and smile. By next week, we are going to pass the bill into law,” he said.


  1. I agree 💯percent. Also talk to your husband to do something about the ruthless killings going on, and teach your boys some manners.

    1. You know this!! Lolzz She is just playing to the gallery

  2. This wife get sense pass the first wife who refused to train her kids well.

  3. Is this the mother of El-Rufai's wayward and mannerless son that threatened to rape someone on Twitter? She supported her son but later apologized after she called out.


  4. Hmmm... I'm skeptical about this. What the accused is actually innocent? It's like an innocent being given the death penalty.

  5. Castration for rapists and no punishment for bandits??? The misplaced priority of this family is beyond me...smh

  6. Nice one, but those men wont agree to it

  7. madam start the teaching from your household,teach that your boy about rape

  8. We can say it's a nice one but we also need to critically look at other factors as this;

    - What if a lady decides to lie that she was raped just to punish an innocent man? Can the damage done to the man be fixed? E.g a case of the guy that spent years in prison for raping no one only for the lady to confess that she accused him wrongly.

    This can only work in a case where the said rapist was caught in the act, else it may be a difficult thing to prove in some cases.

  9. And when the law is passed,, the men they hate will automatically become rapists without trial. May God help you all.

  10. And what will be done to female rapist?

  11. Any man guilty of rape shd be castrated. Any woman guilty of false rape accusation shd have her womb and ovaries removed. Or her breasts cut off.

  12. I hope this won't make any bitter woman who wants a man castrated shout RAPE!! Madam train your sons first. Any rape allegation should be investigated properly, if found guilty should face the law. Madam first lady start castrating those old northern men marrying teenage naive girls ASAP. I hate hypocrisy!
