Kidnappers to get life imprisonment in Kano

Kidnappers in Kano will be sentenced to life in imprisonment if caught.

This is according to the Kano House of Assembly which passed into law, the bill seeking life imprisonment for kidnappers in the state on Monday.

The Majority Leader of the Assembly, Yusuf Atta, read the Kidnapping, Abduction and Forced Labour Amendment Bill 2016 before the Assembly.

“The law has been in existence since 1963, but did not provide serious punishment for kidnappers, therefore, we have to amend it to suit the current situation,” he said.

The House also stipulated a 15 year jail sentence without an option of fine for anyone found guilty of raping or forced labour.
