CONVICTED KIDNAPPERS TO DIE OR FACE LIFE JAIL IN OYO STATE

Convicted kidnappers in Oyo state are now liable to death penalty or life jail term, following a bill passed by the state house of assembly.

Under the bill titled ‘Oyo state kidnap prohibition bill 2015’, anyone convicted of kidnaping, abducting or seizing a person or group of people, is liable to a death penalty.

If the kidnapping or abduction does not result in death and the victims are released after ransom payment, those convicted are liable to a life jail term without an option of fine, and the refund of the ransom.

For people convicted of attempting to kidnap or abduct, the penalty is 20 years, while those abetting or aiding them are liable to 15 years.
