Death Penalty For Cultism, Robbery, Kidnapping In Rivers State by Groovenaija360(m): 9:33pm On Feb 02, 2018
The bill prescribing death penalty for cultism, armed robbery, kidnapping and light arms proliferation in Rivers is now at the committee stage, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The Executive Bill seeks to amend an existing law that assigned 10 years imprisonment for cultism and related offences in the state.

During debate on Wednesday, members of the Rivers State House of Assembly, expressed support for the amendment process, noting that death penalty was most suitable to discourage perpetrators of such crimes.

Mr Ahiakwo Christian, representing ONELGA Constituency 1, also condemned criminal activities across the state and sued for urgent steps by the government toward ending the menace.

He said one of such actions was to prescribe stiffer punishment for culprits.

“Cultism has ravaged our society, we need to take urgent steps to avert the danger ahead,’’
he said.

Also, the Speaker, Mr Ikuinyi Ibani, said there was the need for stiffer punishment for cultism and related offences.

He said that until the issue of light arms proliferation was well regulated, insecurity might continue to threaten humanity.

“It is our wish to live in a society where legitimate activities will remain unhindered, this is the reason Rivers House Assembly must continue to support laws and policies that will protect the people,’’
he said.

The Speaker also constituted a committee that would collate contributions and relevant reports that would enhance easy passage of the bill.

He urged members of the committee to allow contributions from stakeholders, including Civil Society Organisations and the public to enrich its report.

Also at the committee stage is a bill seeking to establish the state security outfit that will support the existing security agencies in the state.

And treasury looters, any penalty for them? No, I doubt that!

Bunch of hypocrites....
The enactment is good however, but they won't make any law that will have effect on them!

Why are laws been made?
To ensure that the higher class citizens have peace of mind enjoying their loots.

You have your money? Then you buy the judge.
Laws are always made to control only the poor!

So that the poor can't kidnap the rich, so that the poor can't rob the rich....

These idiots are bunch of scumbag.

I'm peace loving citizen however but the truth must be said...
Don't bother quoting me cuz I may not reply.

But provide full evidence before executing anyone through the law.

Enough of arbitrary killings.

If Rivers had no Oil & Gas people would have deserted that place long ago like Sambisa with all the violence going on
