Members of the House of Representatives had during plenary on Thursday, voted against a prayer seeking to recommend castration for rapists.
The House, had during the plenary, considered and adopted a motion on the rising cases of sexual violence in Nigeria.
A member, Mr James Faleke, had recommended that persons found guilty of rape should be castrated.
Just before the prayer was subjected to a voice vote, the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, however, asked what would happen to an older female who rapes a younger male.
The comment according to The Punch, generated noise in the chamber. Putting the prayer to vote by the House Speaker, the nays had it.
