Bandits, Kidnappers & Their Informants To Be Hanged To Death In Niger State
Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger state has signed a new law that proposes public hanging for convicted kidnappers, cattle rustlers, and their informants.
In a statement issued on Friday, July 16, the governor stated he had agreed to some measures, including anti-kidnapping and livestock rustling legislation.
According to him, the Abduction and Cattle Rustling Special Provisions Law of 2016 was changed to provide for the punishment of informants as well as all those involved in the state’s aiding and abetting of kidnapping and cattle rustling.
Governor Bello stressed that people who serve as informants for kidnapping operations would be sentenced to die by hanging. He said;
“Whoever instigates any person to kidnap a person or rustle cattle, or intentionally aides, abets or facilitate by any acts of omission or commission of the offence of kidnapping and or cattle rustling is guilty of an offence and is liable on conviction to death by hanging in public,” he said.

In other news, Ghgossip earlier reported that popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo fondly called Sunday Igboho is seeking a new passport to leave the country according to the Federal Government.
It went on to say that the government had put Igboho on a no-fly list in order to make his apprehension easier, and that security forces had been ordered to apprehend him wherever he was discovered.
A person whose name is on the stop-list is denied all constitutional rights and privileges that a citizen is entitled to in the security circle.
A letter from the Nigeria Immigration Service dated July 9, 2021, sent to the Director General, Department of State Services, the Inspector General of Police, and the DG, National Intelligence Agency, included the Federal Government’s directive against Igboho. READ HERE
