Kidnapping: Informants to die by hanging as Governor Sani Bello assents to some laws, politics and governance in Nigeria, breaking news Nigeria today, what is happening in Nigeria, SD News Blog,


 
Niger State Governor and Chairman North Central States Governor's Forum (NCSGF) Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello has assented to some laws in accordance with Section 100(3) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended).

 

The Laws include: The Kidnapping and Cattle Rustling (Special Provisions) Law, 2021, the Niger State Vigilante Corps (Amendment) Law, 2021; the Niger State House of Assembly Service Commission Law, 2020, the Office of the Auditor-General of the State Law, 2021 and the Office of the Auditor General of the Local Government Law, 2021.

 

Governor Sani Bello, at the brief event held at Government House Minna, said the Kidnapping and Cattle Rustling Special Provisions Law of 2016 is amended to provide for the punishment of informants and all those involved in the aiding and abetting of kidnapping and Cattle Rustling in the state.


 
 

The Governor stated that informants who aid and abet Kidnappers would now have to face death sentence by hanging in public as now enshrined in the state law.


 
 

According to him, the law now provides that "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"

 

Governor Sani Bello said the punitive measure is a good stride and has become necessary given the security challenges that has continued to threaten the peaceful coexistence of the state in particular and the country in general.

 

He regretted the unpatriotic activities of informants who, according to him, have contributed to thwarting efforts of the security agencies in combating the nefarious activities of Kidnappers and Cattle Rustlers.
