November 29, 2016 – New Anti Kidnapping Law: Lagos Approves Death Sentence For Convicted Kidnappers

A new bill  that prescribes death sentence to convicted kidnappers whose victims die in their custody has been passed by the Lagos State House of Assembly.

The bill approved today will also hand life sentence to kidnappers whose victims didn’t die in their custody.

It was sponsored by Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker Hon Obasa Mudashiru.

Hope this will stop the incessant kidnappings in Lagos and its environs.

  1. God will bless Lagos state Govt, and every hands that sign in ,this death sentence for kidnappers,hope all S.W Gov do same b4 2017.pls don forget Ritualist also.

    • MUMU PEOPLE, NOW YOU KNOW THAT YOU WOULD PASS THE LAW!!! EDO STATE OSHOMOLE PASS THIS LAW LONG TIME AGO. THE RATE OF KIDNAPPING REDUCED…

  2. it is too late to pass such law, so many had died and so many had lost their wealth to kidnappers. but this is not the solution to reduce the crime, security needs to be strong in that country

  3. Also arm robbers pick pockets all have to be included in this bill. Dead sentence period. Enough is enough. Nigeria has become unsafe for human beings.

    How can people live in their country with fear all the time. Why. And what took the state this long to pass this bills? Can all Nigeria pass this bill.

  4. I feel delighted about this law recently passed by Lagos State, although this has been long due. At last the Lagos government has finally done it.

    This is what I expect our law makers to be deliberating about not to fold their arm as if the situation doesn’t concern them. I taught they have realized if nothing is done about this crime, the whole State will be in turmoil soonest. At any rate, thanks to all Lagos state legislators.

    Now let see if there is going to be limitation in the rate of kidnapping in this state.

  5. Passing bills or making laws is not as good as execution,we all love sentiment in nigeria that’s why nothing is working.l will love to begin to see execution,not just the kidnappers,arm robbers money laundrer,political brigands etc.and justice system need to speed up their operations.
