Lagos State Govertnor, MR. Akinwunmi Ambode (2nd left) signing the law
The Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday signed into law, the bill which prescribed death penalty for kidnappers.
The law imposes a penalty of life imprisonment on kidnapping for ransom, as well as death penalty for kidnappers if a victim dies in the course of kidnap, among other, and Ambode has vowed that the penalty will without doubt be implemented.
The governor expressed the hope that the law would eradicate kidnapping and prevent security breaches in schools. While promising to fully implement the law, he said kidnapping had become a major threat in the state, which deserves to be decisively tackled.
He further assured residents that the justice system would be activated to execute the anti-kidnapping law to the letter.
