Governmental Organisation, Catalyst for Global Peace and Justice Initiative (CPJ) has called for capital punishment for rapists.

The group, reacting to the alleged rape of 13-year-old Elizabeth Ochanya to death in Benue State recently by her 52-year-old uncle, Andrew Ogbuja, a lecturer at Benue State Polytechnic, and his son, Victor Ogbuja called for justice. The duo was said to have kept her as a sex toy for five years.

CPJ Coordinator, Abraham Sam Aiyedogbon, said: “Everybody should rise and stand against rapists. Nobody should directly or indirectly excuse any rapists. Everybody must condemn rape. There is no ground on which it must be acceptable.”
