Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh insists that embattled actor, Baba Ijesha should be punished severely for sexually molesting an underaged girl and attempting to defile her twice.
Tonto Dikeh who had earlier called on authorities not grant Akuapem Poloo bail after he pleaded guilty to the crime he was accused on her Instagram page stated in an interview with Saturday Beats that rapists must face death sentencing or should be castrated.
Speaking to Saturday Beats reported by Kemi Filani news, the mother of decried how rape cases and sexual molestation as well assault has become rampant in today’s world hence the need for drastic measure to protect victims in this.
“In Nigeria, cases of rape are fast assuming a threatening dimension that requires urgent intervention. Rape, like other forms of violence against women, is an infringement on women’s rights, privacy, self-preservation and dignity. There is little or no policy or law that protect the victims as they are most times blamed, stigmatised and humiliated by society if it is brought to the public domain. This hinders victims from embracing a mindset of reporting such an inhumane crime to the appropriate authorities.
I believe that any person found guilty of rape should be sentenced to death either by hanging, firing squad, lethal injection or electrocution. I would also recommend castration. Rape cases and sexual molestations have become the order of the day, and the victims are not getting enough justice. Most of these perpetrators still walk freely,” she said.
