On daily basis, the Niger state’s first lady said, she receives between one or two cases of rape in the state.

She decried the present punishment for offenders, saying, “It is not stringent enough to deter people from committing the crime.”
According to her, “If life sentence is the maximum punishment for rapists those involved will think twice before committing the offence.”
