The proposed legislation, sponsored by Senator Oluremi Tinubu, is titled, “A bill for an Act to amend the Criminal Code Act CAP. C.38, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 2004.”
It seeks to delete the statute of limitations on defilement, increase punishment for the offense of kidnapping, and remove gender restrictions in the offense of rape and other related matters.
The bill eliminates the time frame for prosecuting defilement cases by increasing the period from two months to as many years as the victim decides to take up the manner.
It also removes gender restrictions on the offense of rape by explaining that both males and females could be raped.
