Governor Sule vows to sign death warrant of r.a.p.i.s.t, kidnappers brought before him

The Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has said he will sign death warrants concerning r.a.pists and kidnappers brought before him.

Sule made the statement while inaugurating the sensitisation programme for action against the persistence cases of r.a.pe and kidnapping across the 13 local government areas of the state on Wednesday.

He said r.a.pe and kidnapping were the most stringent security challenges that had been confronting the state, adding that the 36 states, as well as the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, had their peculiar security challenges.

He said, “I will sign any death sentences regarding r.a.pe and kidnapping brought before me.”

The governor added that he would soon institute death penalty as consequences for r.a.pe and kidnapping, pointing out that a stiffer penalty for rapists and kidnappers would deter those who had the intention of embarking on such act.

“If the state Assembly come up with a law to make death sentence a penalty for r.a.pists and kidnappers, I will sign that into a law.”
