A Nigerian man, Akin Tomide, has taken to ‘X’ formerly Twitter to opine that any type of p*netration, whether forced or consented, within the confines of marriage cannot be considered as r*pe.
He stated this on Tuesday, October 3, while responding to another X user, Abubakar Suleiman, who said forced p*netration can be considered as r*pe legally.
“You are wrong. A man cannot r*pe his wife. The law does not consider any type of penetration (consented or forced) within the confines of marriage as r*pe.
You consented to any type of s3x & penetration the day you both agreed to be man & wife. Section 6 of the Nigerian Criminal Code defines unlawful carnal knowledge as that which takes place OTHERWISE than between husband and wife; and the offence is complete upon p*netration.
In other words, marital r*pe is not an offence in Nigeria,” he said.
