According to the laws of Nigeria, rape is punishable by at most life sentence. But actor Yul Edochie believes the punishment must be changed to death sentence.

He made this proposal on Twitter while reacting to the recent cases of raping of prostitutes in Nigeria.

According to the son of veteran actor Pete Edochie, there is absolutely no justification for rape, even if the victims are prostitutes.

He said prostitutes are also human beings and deserve respect.

Ashawo na human being. They do not take nor give by force, they are entitled to their rights. Rape is rape. And there is absolutely no justification for rape. Rape victims live with the trauma forever.I propose death penalty for rapists,” he tweeted.
