When the poor or common people in the society are faced with societal difficulties and social problems, they are usually left to fend for themselves.
But, the reverse is usually the case when such problems or ills begin to affect the elites.
#Kidnapping, a societal disorder, now affects the elite and what other ways to quell the menace than a suggestion of death penalty for those who have taken it as a profession.
He said this was to curb incidence of kidnapping in any part of the state.
The spate of kidnapping in the once-quiet Calabar metropolis had been on the steady increase with the latest being the recent abduction of a senior resident pastor of Winners Chapel in Calabar, Mr. Seyi Adekunle.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita, the governor is also seeking, through the bill, to empower the state to seize any property belonging to convicted kidnappers and other criminals.
He is also seeking rewards to citizens who provided credible information to security agencies on activities of criminals.
The statement read, “The Governor has sent an Executive Bill to the State House of Assembly, seeking death penalty for convicted kidnappers in state.
“The bill also seeks to empower the state to seize property belonging to convicted kidnappers and other criminals in the state, even as it offers rewards to citizens who offer credible information to security agencies on activities of criminals.”
