    Nigeria: Death Penalty for Kidnappers

    The Lagos State House of Assembly recently okayed death penalty for offenders under a new anti-kidnapping law. Tagged "A bill for a law to provide for the prohibition of the act of kidnapping and for other connected purposes," it will become law after Governor Akinwunmi Ambode's assent. The bill prescribes death sentence for kidnappers whose victims die in their custody. Kidnappers whose victims did not die in their custody will get life jail. The bill was passed following the adoption of a report presented by Chairman of the House Committee on Judiciary, Petitions, Human Rights and Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) Mrs Adefunmilayo Tejuosho.

    A copy of the bill soon to be sent to Governor Ambode for assent and the bill states that "Any person who kidnaps, abducts, detains, captures or takes another person by any means or tricks with intent to demand ransom or do anything against his/her will, commits an offence, and is liable on conviction to death sentence." The bill criminalises attempt to kidnap and stipulates life imprisonment for anyone who attempts to kidnap another person. Also, the bill is against false representation to release a kidnapped or abducted person. This attracts seven years' imprisonment.

    The lawmakers also approved 25 years imprisonment for whoever threatens to kidnap another person through phone call, e-mail, text message or any other means of communication. The bill provides that any person who knowingly or wilfully allows or permits his premises, building or a place to which he has control of to be used for the purposes of keeping a person kidnapped is guilty of an offence under the law and is liable to 14 years imprisonment without an option of fine.

    Airman receives death penalty for killing girlfriend

    A General Court Martial of the Nigerian Air Force arraigned one of its personnel, Kalu Bernard to death by hanging for the murder of his girlfriend, Oladipupo Sholape on March 12, 2017.

    Mr Kalu, a regular airman of the 533 Central Armament Depot, NAF Base, Makurdi had, on March 12, allegedly killed Ms Sholape, an aircraftswoman, for cheating on him.

    The President of the General Court Martial, Group Captain Elisha Bindul handed him the death penalty after the defense failed to prove his innocence in the March 12 tragedy. The accused is also standing trial for housebreaking, impersonation as a commissioned officer on Facebook with the intent to defraud the public, and attempt to murder one Samuel Onah.

    “On the First charge of murder, contrary to section106 sub-section A of the Armed Forces Act Cap A20, Law of the Federation of Nigeria 2004, the convict is sentenced to death by hanging”.

    “On the Second charge of house break-in, contrary to section110 sub-section B of the Armed Forces Act Cap A20, Law of the Federation of Nigeria 2004, the convict is sentenced to five years imprisonment”.

    “To the Fourth charge of attempt to commit an offence, contrary to section 95 of the Armed Forces Act, Cap A20 of the Law of the Federation of Nigeria 2004, the convict is sentenced to life imprisonment”

    Meanwhile, counsel to Air Craftsman Kalu Benard, Mr. A. M Ewuga, is heading on appeal, noting that his court is innocent of the five count charge preferred against him and accused the general court martial of not evaluating the evidence before it.

    He said, “The court has not evaluated the evidence before her properly”.

    “The case of the defense is not considered by the court and in our own very candid opinion, the decision of this honourable court need to be tested and surely we are going to move to the court of appeal to consider this decision of the court today”.

    Man sentenced to death for armed robbery

    An Ekiti State High Court on Wednesday sentenced one Kingsley Okorowande to death by hanging for armed robbery.

    Justice Lekan Ogunmoye in a judgment held that the prosecution has proved the case against the convict beyond reasonable doubt.

    He said the convict was guilty of the charge preferred against him.

    The judge held that the offence was contrary to Section 1(2)(a) of Robbery and Firearms (Special Provision) Act Cap R11 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2014.

    According to the charge sheet, the incident occurred on or about the 6th November, 2013 at Ori Apata Natha area of Basiri, Ado-Ekiti.

    Okorowande robbed one Mrs. Medinat Babatunde of her laptops, handsets, jewelry, wristwatches and the sum of N210,000.00 while armed with guns and cutlasses.

    The convict was first arraigned on February 21, 2017 when the charge was read to him and he pleaded not guilty to the crime.

    Six suspects were initially arraigned for the offence but four of them Eze Stephen, Toyin Faturoti, Ojo Gboyega and Alomaja Sunkanmi escaped during the Ado-Ekiti jailbreak.

    The fifth accused person, Sulaimon Sunday, who was on bail, jumped bail.

    The charges were later split to give room for the trial of the convict.

    The prosecution counsel, Mr. Ayodeji Jayeoba, called four witnesses including two police officers and the complainant.

    The defence counsel, Mr. Lekan Olatawura, who handled the matter pro bono, did not call any witness.

    Exhibits tendered included statement of the accused, a hammer, a saw blade, a live cartridge and cut-to-size pistol, among others.

    Justice Ogunmoye said: The mandatory sentence in a case of the defendant convicted for armed robbery is death penalty.

    The defendant is hereby sentenced to death by hanging. May God have mercy on your soul.

    Nigeria: Why Govt, States May Not Execute 2,359 Death Row Inmates

    By John Chuks Azu
    The Daily Trust

    There are indications that the recent directive by the Federal Government to state governors to take action on the 2,359 death row inmates may not lead to their executions.

    The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN), had at the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting presided by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on July 19, asked the 36 state governors to act in line with Section 212 of the 1999 Constitution on the number of inmates sentenced to death as a means of decongesting prisons, which have about 73,631 inmates nationwide.

    The Solicitor General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Justice, Dayo Apata, said the advice by the AGF centered on a review of the situation of the death row inmates using available legal options such as prerogative of mercy or remitting the sentences and not necessarily executing them.

    He said during the nationwide tour as part of the prison decongestion directive of the president, the AGF found that some governors were very reluctant to act on the death row prison inmates either due to religious, social or other reasons, while others were taken to states other than where they were sentenced.

    He said this category of inmates were constituting security risk at prisons by committing crimes right in the prisons.

    "Since the governors were not forthcoming for reasons best known to them, the AGF now presented a memo before the National Economic Council that they should review and also suggested other avenues, since the people have been in detention for many years without anything being done about them," he said.

    "He only made suggestions about maybe those who have been transferred to other states, that maybe they should bring them back so that the governors can take absolute control of the powers conferred by the law or maybe they can review them by way of prerogative of mercy, remitting the death sentence, and not going ahead to execute them," he said.

    Section 33 (1) of the 1999 Constitution provides for the death sentence. Also, offences of murder, treason, treachery, and armed robbery are punishable with death. The applicable sections are Section 221 of the Penal Code and Section 319 of the Criminal Code.

    However, state governors under Section 212 of the 1999 Constitution have the prerogative of mercy under the advice of the State Advisory Council to review or commute the death sentence to other forms of punishment.

    Meanwhile, several human rights organizations had criticized the advice to the state governors on the death row inmates.

    The Executive Director of Citizens United for the Rehabilitation of Errants (CURE), Sylvester Uhaa, said it was worrisome that the country was planning the executions as a way of reducing the prison population in the country, noting that they constitute only two percent of the prison population.

    Also speaking, the director of Avocats Sans Frontiere France (ASFF) otherwise known as Lawyers Without Borders, Angela Uwandu, advised the Federal Government to adopt the existing international moratorium on death sentence as a way of showing that it has "respect for the sanctity of human lives."

    The Executive Director of Prisoners Rehabilitation and Welfare Action (PRAWA), Dr Uju Agomoh, suggested the use of other forms of punishment and the adoption of the pre-trial reforms in the Act on Criminal Justice Administration, which provides for non-custodial measures like community service, probation and parole as means of decongesting prisons.

    "This cannot be the way to decongest our prisons. The high proportion of persons who are in prison is actually attributable to pre-trail detainees. If anybody in Nigeria wants to decongest the prison, the first place to look at is the number of persons in pre-trial detention as well as reducing the duration spent in pre-trial detention, so we need to encourage speedy trial," Agomoh said.

    The senior special assistant to the Executive Secretary of National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Lambert Opara, said although Section 33(1) of the Constitution provides for the death sentence, there is need for "constitutional amendment to remove the death penalty in our statute books."

    However, the Executive Director of Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), Emmanuel Onwubiko, said the death penalty remains part of Nigerian laws and advocated the amendment of the law especially, to include death penalty for terrorism-related offences involving death of persons.

    "The constitution recognizes capital punishment and since we operate on the basis of the constitution and the person sentenced has the opportunity to appeal the judgment to the Supreme Court, I don't see anything wrong with carrying out the executions," he said.

    Nigeria sentences prisoner to death via video-app Zoom

    Rights groups have condemned as “cruel and inhumane” Nigeria’s decision to sentence a prisoner to death via the video-conferencing app Zoom.

    Olalekan Hameed, who was attending the online hearing on Monday last week from the Kirikiri maximum security prison in Lagos, was found guilty of the 2018 murder of his mother’s 76-year-old employer, a charge he had denied.

    “The sentence of this court upon you, Olalekan Hameed, is that you be hanged by the neck until you be pronounced dead and may the lord have mercy upon your soul. This is the virtual judgment of the court,” Justice Mojisola Dada announced at the end of a three-hour hearing at Ikeja High Court in Lagos.

    The proceedings were approved by Chief Judge, Justice Kazeem Alogba, in line with the Lagos State Judiciary Remote Hearing of Cases COVID-19 Pandemic Period Practice Direction.

    Justice Dada conducted proceedings from High Court 10 in Ikeja, the defendant Hameed was at Kirikiri Maximum Correctional Centre, Apapa, while the counsels were at different locations.

    Judicial Officers including Justice Alogba, Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye, Justice Josephine Oyefeso, Justice Sherifat Solebo, Justice Afeez Dabiri, Justice Roli Harriman, amongst others, also participated.

    The court session for the charge marked ID/9006C/2019, held online via a video app Zoom. It began at 11am and ended before 2pm.

    The judge, defendant, his team of counsel, the prosecution team led by Lagos State Solicitor-General Ms Titilayo Shitta-Bey and all witnesses participetd in the session remotely from different locations via the Zoom app.

    Hameed was arraigned on March 6, 2019 on a two-count charge of murder and stealing on Charge No. ID/9006C/2019.

    The court heard that he committed the offence at about 12:30pm at plot 83, Owukori Crescent, Alaka Estate, Surulere, Lagos.

    He pleaded not guilty, following which trial commenced.

    The prosecution called several witnesses and tendered exhibits including the coroner’s report, stolen N97, 500 and $117 recovered from the defendant and a confessional statement, among others.

    “The only money I took was the N1,000, any other money I don’t know about it. I did not kill Mrs Jolaso Ogunsanya,” Hakeem told the judge during the trial.

    But Justice Dada noted that prosecution witnesses’ testimonies that Hakeem was the only one with the deceased at the time of death and he was also seen scaling the fence of the deceased’s building afterwards, among others, were not disproved.

    He's not going to get executed. I don't believe that Lagos has executed someone in this millennium.

    The last time Nigeria performed executions was 2013 when they hanged four inmates. Before then there hadn’t been an execution since 2006
    I believe in the death penalty
