Justice Eberechi Wike Calls for Amputation of Convicted Child Defilers

Justice Eberechi Wike advocates amputation of people found guilty of defiling minors

Former first lady of Rivers state and a judge of the Rivers State High Court, Eberechi Wike, has advocated the amputation of people found guilty of defiling minors. 

Channels TV reports that Mrs Wike stated this on Tuesday, October 24, on the sidelines of the 2nd National Conference of Family Court Judges, Magistrates, and other Family Court Practitioners in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

She insisted that the current punishment isn’t drastic enough, adding that the move will deter sexual offenders from molesting minors.

According to the judge, the society should step up punishments for people who defile children beyond life imprisonment or a 14-year jail term.

“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
