“Kidnappers Like Evans Deserves Nothing Than Death Sentence” – Governor David Umahi of Delta State
As the News of Evans, the popular and notorious kidnapper in the tight security’s custody has currently been interfered to by the Delta State governor, David Umahi has suggested that Evans and his fellow kidnap kingpins should be sentenced to “Death” as a scapegoat and capital punishment for other people who are also kidnappers like them.
According to Governor Umahi, the kidnappers should be executed publicly in other to serve as a lesson to others.
While the governor was Speaking in Abakaliki during an anti-corruption summit organized by the state government, he said if such the “death Penalty” punishment is carried out and implemented, it will help reduce the high rate of kidnapping in Nigeria.
Governor David Umahi said:
- “What these kidnappers do is worse than death, imagine kidnapping someone, blindfolding and chaining the person in one place for six months or more than that, it is worse than death and people who indulge in such deserve to be publicly executed to serve as a deterrent to others.”
Also at a summit themed: ‘Institutionalization of Good Governance for Sustainable Development’, Ekpo Nta, the chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) said good governance can never be achieved in a corrupt environment.
Mr. Nta said:
- “Corruption thrives where all these processes are prevalent and corrupt persons seize these opportunities. ICPC relies heavily on promoting anti-corruption through robust prevention strategies.
- “The United Nations Convention Against Corruption, UNAC strongly recommends that most of our strategies be channelled into prevention processes. This is the practice adopted by countries that have successfully reduced corrupt processes.”
