Osun speaker reminds rapists of life imprisonment~NEWSEXTRA




The Speaker of Osun State House of Assembly, Timothy Owoeye, on Thursday restated that anyone found guilty of rape in the state would be sentenced to life imprisonment.

Owoeye, during plenary, said the growing rate of rape cases in the country was becoming alarming, noting that the issue must be quickly addressed.

He said, “Osun has enacted a law that imposes stiffer sentences on perpetrators of rape.

“Section 358 of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol. 11, Laws of Osun state, 2002 prescribes a life sentence on anyone found guilty of committing rape, while an attempt to commit rape attracts imprisonment of fourteen years.
