Due to the flagrant cases of rape especially among youngsters, the National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi in an interview with newsmen in Ota, Ogun state on Sunday said “death sentence and castration of rape offenders not sufficient to end incessant rape cases in our country”.
Ogunyemi reminded us that the death sentences and other stiffer punishment imposed on armed robbery by the Federal Government has not ended it, neither has it yielded desirable result.
He attributed incessant cases of rape to poor governance, noting that the individual too may have problems and that the society also has to be blamed.
“The country has to look on how best she can reform and create a disciplined environment to minimise the manifestation of this surge
“How do we create an environment where people will express their frustration on others by oppressing the innocent girls or women in the society,” Ogunyemi asked.
He described rape as immoral behaviour caused by psychological or mental problem exhibited by the rapist.
According to him, the social environment the nation finds itself also creates avenues for such act to be perpetrated
