Senator Ben Bruce has disclosed that the biggest problem being discussed on the floor of the Senate is the issue of rape.

The ‘Common Sense’ Senator said that the issue of rape has become so prevalent in recent times that it must be checked because of its devastating effect.

Senator Bruce who made the statement last Monday at the launch of Western Lotto in Lagos frowned at a situation where victims of rape are dropping from adults to minors.  

At the senate, rape is the biggest problem being discussed. It is bad for adults to be raped but bad enough for children to be raped,” he said.

When you hear the ages of some of the rape victims you will be shocked. Some of them are 9-month old or less, which shows what our society is degenerating into.

One will not understand how bad rape can be until the devastating effects are felt in all strata of the economy if not checked. The effects ranges from creating generations of low self-esteem and a society with people full of bitterness in their heart and in most cases, the cost of integrating the people back to the society will be higher.”

The Bayelsa Senator was of the opinion that rapists should face death penalty especially when the victims are children.

Some time ago I discussed with some of my colleagues in the Senate on the need to propose a Bill that stipulates death penalty for anyone involved in rape, but was talked out of it.

But, with the alarming rate of rape cases, something urgent has to be done to stop the tide.

I will propose a death penalty for anyone who rapes a minor especially 9-month olds,” he said.

He observed that he would rally round his friends to support the Bill and called on Nigerians to call their representatives in the senate to support the bill as according to him, is one way to discourage people from involving in rape.

He, however, advised potential rape victims to make themselves as hideous as possible whenever they are being attacked by rapists.  

Before rape occurs, rapists will be attracted to their potential victims, so at this stage, when a rape attack is about to happen, the victims should dip two fingers into their mouth and throw-up on themselves to make themselves as disgusting as possible. This act will discourage the attack because at this point the potential victim will be hideous and not as beautiful as she originally was,” Bruce advised.
