Toyin Adegbola, a Nollywood star, has recommended castration as the suitable punishment to deal with the recent upward push in the spate of rape instances in Nigeria.
The 59 years old veteran actress, spoke on the rape situation on Tuesday while she featured on ‘Parrot Xtra Hour on Radio,’ a Space FM Ibadan’s programme, anchored by Olayinka Agboola.
Conversations about rape have ruled social discourse when you consider Vera Omozuwa. A student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), died after she was attacked and raped while reading at a Church in her hometown in Edo State.
On probable answers to the menace, Adegbola also stressed the need for parents to set up a better bonding with children, in particular the girls, with out shying away from sex education.
Making an analogy of herself, the thespian additionally highlighted the need to prioritise kids as her cause for refusing to get re-married after her husband’s demise more than 20 years ago.
The actress also spoke about her hiatus from the film space. She attributed her seeming absence to growth, explaining that she now cautiously selects roles.
When asked about her stage name ‘Ajoke Ashewo to re Mecca’, which readily inspires practices pertaining to prostitution, the Adegbola defined that she got it from a position she acted in a movie.
“There was a time I went to buy some things at Dugbe Market in Ibadan and a particular woman started shouting ‘Ashewo’, you know,” she said while recounting an experience with a fan.
“It was so embarrassing. I found it offensive initially but I just had to get used to it eventually. Besides, this is what I’m getting paid for.”
Adegbola’s stance comes after members of the house of representatives voted against castrating of rape convicts in a punitive measure suggested by James Faleke from Lagos state.
