Kate Henshaw Angry Over Bail of Rape Victim

Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, who is ever ready to speak bluntly about any controversial issue, is out again and this time her axe of anger is falling on the Nigerian judiciary system.

The actress is currently angry with the fact that a court could go as far as granting a rapist bail despite the fact that he committed the crime.

She was speaking on the fact that an employee of Exxon Mobil, Ikenna Onuoha, allegedly raped a 14 year old girl on the 4th of January, 2016, and was charged to court only for the court to grant him bail with the sum of N2 million with two sureties in like sum.

The actress used the opportunity to call on parents to teach their children how to speak while pointing that a rapist should not be granted bail to serve as punishment to others.

In her opinion, she said, “Rapists should not be granted bail; this will act as a deterrent. Action should be expedited especially for rape cases so that victims do not wait long for justice and can begin the process of counselling and healing. Teach children to speak out. Thank you to the Lagos state directorate of public prosecutions for recommending the case for trial. Thank you to all the agencies instrumental to fighting this cause.”
