Kano House Of Assembly Passes Law That Jail Convicted Kidnappers For Life

The Kano House of Assembly today passed  into law, the bill seeking life imprisonment for kidnappers in the state.

The House Majority leader, Alhaji Yusuf Atta, read the Kidnapping, Abduction and Forced Labour Amendment Bill 2016 before the Assembly.

Speaking shortly after the plenary, Atta said the Committee of the whole House passed the bill after considering the amendment of the bill.

“The law has been in existence since 1963, but did not provide serious punishment for kidnappers, therefore, we have to amend it to suit the current situation,” he said.

Atta, who is a member representing Fagge Constituency, explained that any person found guilty of kidnapping would face life imprisonment without an option of fine.

According to him, anyone found guilty of raping or forced labour will also be sentenced to 15 years without an option of fine.
