Eberechi Wike, a former first lady of Rivers state and current judge on the Rivers State High Court, has argued for the amputation of anyone found guilty of defiling youngsters.
According to Channels TV, Mrs. Wike reportedly said this on Tuesday, October 24, in Port Harcourt, the state capital, during the 2nd National Conference of Family Court Judges, Magistrates, and Other Family Court Practitioners.
She maintained that the present penalty is not severe and said the action would prevent sexual predators from abusing youngsters.
The judge ruled that the punishment for defiling children should be increased by society beyond a 14-year jail sentence or life in prison.
“We should do much more. I think we should do something that will be really drastic, that will make them think twice before they do that. I cannot think of anything better than having legislation that whatever part of your body you use on a child while defiling the child, that part should be cut off. If it is your finger, if it is your mouth, if it is your private part. I think men will take it more seriously when you come up with such legislation. I hope a man in the House of Reps or Senate sponsors a bill like that.” she said
