Child rapists should have their organs cut off – Florence Ita-Giwa



Florence Ita Giwa
Florence Ita-Giwa said she thinks the best way to end the scourge of sexual assault of minors is for the rapists to have their sexual organs cut off.

She spoke yesterday at the Magenta and Black Art & Fashion for Charity, a fund raising exhibition for Mirabel Centre, held at British Council, Lagos.

Vanguard reports Ita-Giwa as saying,

The lady said she was happy that she got justice for her four-year-old daughter who was raped by two men but, in my mind, if I were a judge and a man is brought to court for raping a child, he will receive capital punishment. But I will say, “don’t kill him, rather let him live his life in pain, let his organ be cut off”.

He should not be allowed the pleasure of using that organ anymore. If the organ is not cut off, at the end of his term in prison, he will use it on other children. Fortunately for them, I’m no longer in the Senate but I will find a way to get it into the chamber. This is the proper way to end the evil of rape in the society.”

She also commended the Mirabel Centre on their commitment to rehabilitating victims of sexual assault.

The Managing Partner for Mirabel Centre – Itoro Eze-Anaba also spoke, and said rape is a community issue that needs to be addresses.

“Rape is not a girls’ or women’s issue, it is a community issue because boys are also being raped daily. The implication is that if we do not end it, the abused may end up as an abuser and a time will come when the society will be filled with abusers.”


Mirabel Centre is a project of Partnership for Justice where rape and sexual assault victims can access free forensic medical & counseling services. For more information, you can go to their Facebook page.

    why do many women have so much hatred towards that organ called penis. any incident that happens, CUT OFF HIS PENIS, PUT A BROOM STICK IN HIS PENIS AND BREAK IT.
    what is the difference between u and those barbarians that put pepper on that girls private part. the girl who was accused of stealing.

    madame pls this is 2016 not 1705. I assume u are educated also and civilised.

    it will be more logical if they make a sex offenders list. that way child molesters and rapists cant get near children again.

      Bruno, Bruno, Bruno don’t even go there! Paedophilia is a serious issue. This issue is not one of those that generate light hearted banter. While It is mighty wrong to put pepper on those girls, you cannot put paedophiles in the same box as those people. If there is a worse punishment than cutting of their member, paedophiles should get it.

      A sex offenders list? Are you kidding me? Nigeria is not as advanced as America where every citizen has a social security number and their data are recorded online. In Nigeria, a sex offender would be on such a list and nobody would know that the person is on the list. Unless if the person is a public figure.

      Re-your last sentence. Gary Glitter circumvented the sex offenders list and found a way to Vietnam and Cambodia where he continued to wreak havoc. They can be chemically castrated permanently instead.

      Thou dost protest too much.

      If you have never been assaulted, I suggest you calm down. Only women (and little girls) who have experienced that , know the hell they go through. So if ‘cutting it off’ will serve as a deterrent, then let the slicing begin!

      Sex offenders’ lists do – all in my opinion. Unless you’re a paedo yourself, I’m not sure why such a statement should offend you. The sentiment should be well understood. I feel however, that the death penalty is a more appropriate punishment and deterrent. A sex offender can still assault without an organ. Either that or life imprisonment, with no chance of parole whatsoever! Let your one year old child get brutally raped and come back and tell me six years imprisonment with a chance of parole for “good behavior” and a record on a sex offenders’ list is punishment enough. Sex offenders ALWAYS strike again.

      And also, how dare you compare sexual assault to stealing. Your head nodded correct.

      I could not agree with you more. Some women -especially the so-called women liberalists have an uncanny hatred against men and the male reproductive organ. But, when you make a similar statement against the woman reproductive organ, they are the first to pick offence and scream: “male oppression and chauvinism!”

      Sex offenders Register in Nigeria, ok…………
      Does Nigeria even have any form of data xcept that Census they did decades ago.
      I don’t blame Florence ita Giwa for making that statement.
      That’s how my neighbours security guard was accused of sleeping with girls as little as 9 from that mini ghetto behind TPH lekki.
      I won’t be surprised if he’s been released. The problem is our legal system in dis country is crap, coupled with ppl making xcuses dat such and such is devils work.

      you are not speaking as a victim of rape, bcos if you had that experience you would not be objectively talking. and the fact of the matter is rape is one of the worst experience a human being can have, not to talk of a child, it will change your life and your mind. people self destruct usually after the trauma never goes away. there is no middle ground in dealing with rapists of children. they shall pay the price and that may and should include cutting off their dicks. i agree with her.

      Your suggestion will work in a developed country but definitely not Nigeria. We can’t even get the simplest stuff right, so how are we going to handle something like this? The best way to deal with rape in Nigeria should be what Florence Ita Giwa suggested

      I think madam Ita- Giwa was being sarcastic. Doubt if she meant it literally.A sex offenders list in Nigeria? That’s a tough call in a country with no functional database system. Who lives where, who works where or what is our demographic, can we even tell? There are existing laws against child abuse. The government should encourage speedy court hearings and ensure justice is served.

      No one hates the penis, just the rapist. CUT IT OFF . LISTS DO NOT WORK IN MY BOOK, WHAT WILL THE LIST DO? JUST CUT IT OFF. If you catch a woman raping a child cut off what you want. As log as they are guilty. Tje worst sin in the world is to rape a CHILD!!!! CUT IT ALL OFF!!!!!

    I second your opinion ma’am. The same punishment should be extended to other rapists ( not only child rapists), as well as, pedophiles who hide under the name of religion to marry and defile children I would love to witness the cutting-off of senator yerima’s penis. Sick bastard!

    Y are you so bitter? Since you guys have decided not to stop it’s high time we took the bull by the horn n cut off that organ right from the roots. Nonsense. !! It hasn’t happened to anyone related to you that’s why.

    Uncle Bruno! Pls it’s no time for this nonsense.. Abeg! Don’t be here comparing anything! As far as I’m concerned, a man/woman, who for whatever reason finds the need to rape an innocent child should be dealt with seriously and should be left with a scar that will serve as a reminder for his or her act of stupidity and also a warning to other fools who may want to tread on this path! What has a little child (boy/girl) done to you? Why do you want to leave them emotionally scarred for life? It’s just disgusting and saddening to think of. It’s not just men, cause women sexually abuse children as well ? Speaking from personal experience of a driver almost molesting me, I can’t stress how important it is to let these demons know they won’t be tolerated!

    It might besomething popular to say but in a civilized society you can’t do that there are laws that takes cares of it ones someone rapes a minor he or she will face the law and mostly spend many years in prison or may be the rest of there life in prison depending on the nature of the case and I have to point out that even though majority of rape cases of minors many are done by Men but according to many data Women need to be included in this because the rape minors too. most of the victims go as young as less than 10 year old boys and girls.

    Unfortunately we r a country of capital punishment! An offenders list, don’t think that will work in a country like ours where we barely read and there are numerous other things we seem to get into. People are scared of inflicted injury and jail term so if it works, I’m sorry I align with Iya Bakassi! I love the initiative and I will definitely be sharing the information.

    Madam Ita-Giwa, in as much as rape is a heinous and unconscionable act genital mutilation shouldn’t be encouraged it only makes you as barbaric and callous as the perpetrators. Capital punishment as bad as it is serves as a better deterrent. Chop off their organs!!! Lol medically?? Or with an axe?? Madam we are in a civil world today.

    why shouldn’t it be cut off?? men know nothing but to use their organs to disrupt people’s lives. Men who rape children are animals and they deserve to be treated as such. Would a sane man rape a child?? their organs should be cut off and trust me, we would see a drastic reduction of rape in the society.

    Yes!!!! Anybody that molests a child should also feel the pain of molestation. They should definitely have their organs cut off. By the time this happens to a few men, this madness will stop.

    Yes! CUT IT OFF. Since they ruin the lives of harmless children

    I do not agree because there have been many cases of people falsely accused of rape. If you cut of someone’s genitals and tomorrow you find out he is innocent, how will you compensate him when the procedure is irreversible? Instead they should be given a life sentence

    • Rose okwy

      May 25, 2016 at 5:03 pm

      How do you compensate the victim? There will always be those cases but majority are true

    So what about women who rape little chldren? What would be the suggested punishment for them??

      cut off their fingers or whatever. Am sick of child molesters

    Having their penis cut off won’t do a damn thing. This is where we need research. The rapists can use foreign objects, their hands, dildos, anything.

    • Rose okwy

      May 25, 2016 at 5:01 pm

      At least the penis is sexually non functional!!!!

  16. Declan nkechinyere

    April 18, 2016 at 4:22 pm

    Ma pls if u know what to do about this mess, pls do, both men and women who rape children they should be well punished, so that others will learn there lessons.

  17. Rose okwy

    May 25, 2016 at 5:05 pm

    If found guilty cut off arms, fingers, legs, penis, breast, whatever!!! That way the use of foreign objects to rape is not possible, cut of their mouths too. I don’t care. Child molesters are the worst scum of scoiety
