A member of the house, Mr James Faleke, had recommended that persons found guilty of rape should be castrated.

The Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, however, asked what would happen to an older female who rapes a younger male, just before the prayer was subjected to a voice vote.

The House of Representative put the prayer to vote and it was rejected by the majority.
