The Federal Government has come out to say that rape will no longer be bailable very soon.

Minister of State in the FCT, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu recently revealed that FG is determined to make rape a non-bailable offense in the nearest future.

According to her, laws are being worked on to ensure rapists suffer for their crime and this will serve as a deterrent to potential culprits.

She added that President Muhammadu Buhari is a man who believes in the worth of the girl-child and he will not let them down.

Her words, “It is also gratifying to know that our dear President, Muhammadu Buhari, in him lies a man who believes in the worth of the girl-child. We have been able to present to him various cases of gender-based violence in the Federal Executive Council.

“Let me assure you that laws will soon be rolled out, to serve as a deterrent to culprits who are guilty or people found culpable of abuses of the girl-child. Unlike before that rape cases are ‘bailable’, we are now working towards a situation where it would no longer be a bailable offense.

“In the Federal Capital Territory, we have been able to give succour to the girl-child, we have been able to encourage the girl-child, we have been able to make them believe in themselves. The girl-child is not subordinate to any other child. The Administration will continue to boost this, and continue to preach this experience and embark on advocacy.”
