With the recent increase in the incidence of rape in the country, especially on minors, Nigerians have become quite worried. They have been called to the fact that it could happen next to someone very close to them. However, according to Nigerian constitution, the highest a rapist is punished with is a few years in prison. Lots of people feel that this is not enough punishment for people that cause permanent physical and emotional damage to their victims. Therefore, Nigerians are clamouring for death sentence for any rapist caught. This is sure to serve as a deterrent to others that they have to pay for this heinous crime with their lives. A low percentage of people feel that these rapists can end up being repentant for their actions and deserve to be given a chance to live after serving their punishment in prison. Do you agree with the death penalty?
