The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Kaduna State Command, has revealed that they have finalized modalities to prosecute persons involved in about 19 reported cases of rape in Kaduna State.

This is coming at a time where high incidences of rape have been recorded in Kaduna State.

They explained that the motive behind their planned prosecution is hinged on reducing the increasing incidence of child defilement and rape in Kaduna State.

This was contained in a statement made available to Hanoky Media and signed by ASC Orndiir Terzungwe, the Public Relations Officer, NSCDC, Kaduna State Command.

According to the statement, “In a bid to control the increasing incidence of child defilement and rape, we in the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Kaduna State command, have attended to no fewer than 19 cases of rape reported from August 2020 till date.”

“Some of these reports were either lodged in through the Ministry of Human Services, Civil Society Organisations, Kaduna Vigilance Service and complainants or individuals etc, for arrest, investigation and prosecution. Unfortunately, all of these cases involve minor who became victims of randy suspects.”

“Out of the total number, the command is prosecuting 18 in courts with a high tendency that the suspects would be eventually convicted, while the remaining case is being investigated and the suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigation is completed.”

It should be recalled that Hanoky Media had previously, during last week, revealed that the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, had signed a law providing surgical castration and removal of Fallopian tubes as punishments for rapists. According to the Kaduna State Government, this was done to reduce the rape cases recorded in the state.

Responding to this development, the statement read, “It is worrisome that despite legislative measures put in place by the state government to punish perpetrators of this evil act, many people still indulge in it.”

“We in the corps are highly displeased with the rising incidence of child defilement and rape in the state and will do everything legally possible to control same.”

“It is hoped that as we remain resilient in discharging our duties to control this menace and other crimes, we will record high successes especially with the recent approval of castration and bilateral salpingectomy for male and females respectively and death by the State Assembly.”

The Kaduna State NSCDC PRO further pleaded with the public and sought their collaboration in reducing the rate of crime in the state.

His words, “Let me also use this opportunity and call on all and sundry to continue with their support hoping that other criminal acts such as banditry, kidnapping among others would be brought under control with our collective efforts.”
