While filling in for an absent teacher in my place of primary assignment, a secondary school. I thought of what kind of discussion I could engage the senior secondary 2 girls in. One that will both captivate their attention and wouldn’t be a total waste of time by them getting at least something from the discussion. Fortunately for me, it was around the time Linda Ikeji posted this story.
A man/guy raped his girlfriend’s son which led to the baby’s death. He denied raping the boy, autopsy test proved sexual molestation and he was the only person in custody of the boy. He was detained in jail, where he was tortured and raped by 20 men who have heard the act that brought him there. More like giving him what he deserved. After long hours, where 20 inmates had their turn, he was rescued by the prison warden, treated for a few weeks and returned to the same cell where he was raped by these 20 men again. Will you say he got the due punishment for his act?
Will you say what Salander in “The girl with the dragon tattoo” did (using a tattoo machine to brand her legal adviser as a rapist for using his position to extort sexual favors from her and later raping her, but thanks to a hidden camera she had, giving her something to hold against him) justifiable enough as a punishment for the crime of rape.
Anyways, I got the following suggestion from my students;
- His manhood should be cut off, leaving him with no tool/weapon for further destruction.
- He should be sentenced to death by hanging or electric chair
- He should be raped just like the instance on Linda Ikeji’s blog

In my opinion, I honestly don’t know. The crime is grave enough for a death penalty. But let me leave you my lovely readers to contribute. IF YOU ARE GIVEN THE LEGISLATIVE POWER TO DECIDE WHICH PUNISHMENT WILL BE MET OUT TO A CONVICTED RAPIST. WHAT WILL BE THE DUE JUSTICE FOR RAPE? Please don’t ignore, commenting is quite easy.

It’s a hard question to answer.. Rape is an extremely disturbing crime. Maybe cutting off his manhood is a bit too extreme. I really don’t know but as long as the bare minimum of justice is served i.e, a whole lot of jail time.
What a story, since the man has been found guilty of such crime. He not only raped the boy but also muddered him. If I were to pass judgement on him, I would say he should be put life time in jail(dats if his below 30yrs) or he shld be killed by hanging. He took the life of someone else nd so does nt deserve to live. Or better still the law of kamma. He shld be raped to death.
as tempted as I am to ignore this. my legal alter ego would not allow me. rape is a crime against so many things the body, the mind a direct assault to the psychology of the victim. now what is the appropriate punishment for rape? a jail term and punitive compensations to the victim for rehabilitation.
I agree with you Newton.. It’s just sad that rape has been existing since the days of Amnon who raped his sister in the Bible.. it hurts me that currently 2 to 3 year Olds Are getting raped in this age.
I am particularly short of words on what to comment on the matter. I think rape is a despicable crime and should be dealt with severely, however, the three options above might just be pretty extreme. I would suggest a jail term of 15 years with intense psychological consultation throughout the term. Taking justice into our own hands my just leave God with nothing to do in terms of teaching the rapist a lesson. So, I believe in that time where he/she is in jail (cos the rapist could as well be a woman), God in His mysterious way would wokr a way of making such a person learn his lesson. By the way, I believe the 20 guys that raped the rapist were just trying to sexually gratify themselves while using his deeds as a justification. That’s so blech! Even to a rapist. Sorry for le longue comment tho x__x 🙂
Oh Wow! Rape is such a horrible thing especially the effect it leaves on the victim. Looking at the law of sowing and reaping, the Man probably reaped what He sowed. I think rapists should be punished by the law with follow up and also monitored After release. We can keep on damaging lives of innocent people, and letting culprits walk freely without facing the consequences of their evil act.
I don’t think there is any punishment too harsh for the crime committed. In my opinion, they should be raped by animals & humans several times then finally killl them with electric chair.
Lool…raped by animals??? Lmao
Lwtmb…..Recommendation of Life!!!
Hehehe Abi now, Rape is that terrible…but animals hmmm, that might just scare rapist, who knows
For this case, since it involves murder, I’d say life imprisonment or the death penalty straight up.
For rape as a separate offence, I’d say minimum 15-20years jail time.
Rape is a very serious issue and a grave offence in our society.It is one of the tools the devil is using to destroy destinies. I wonder “what on earth attracted a full grown man to a baby boy?”If not because he is possessed.
However,no RAPIST should go unpunished,i think a long jail term (15 yrs) is okay for the rapist and also a proper rehabilitation and monitoring of the victim because most times we forget about the effects the incident had on the victim,some remain broken and withdrawn for life.
I’ve been a victim of rape many times so trust me when I say giving them jail time or allowing them to be raped too is NOT an appropriate punishment at all. You have to know where the shoe pinches to be able to feel someone’s pain. Just hearing of stories and imagining how these boys/girls feel is not enough. Therefore, I say these rapists should be tied to a tree infested with soldier ants and beaten to death with a cane decorated with sharp blades. As gruesome as that sounds, it’s still not enough punishment.
I am totally in support of that man’s death…he took life, and his must be taken. But he needs to die in a very painful way,so he can struggle for life a little and feel the pain he caused that child.
1. Raped with a large piece on wood and recorded
2. Has p*nis cut off
3. has bones in legs and hands broken(not cut off so he doesnt die of blood loss)
4. left alone in a room(where there are no material with which he can commit suicide) with the video of him being raped playing
5. allowed to die *peacefully*
