Senate Proposes 15-year Imprisonment For Anybody That Pays ransom to kidnappers

The Senate has proposed a 15-year-jail term for any Nigerian who pays ransom to kidnappers.

The bill seeking to prohibit the payment and receipt of ransom for the release of any person kidnapped, imprisoned, or wrongfully confined and sponsored by the Senator Imo East Senatorial District, Francis Onyewuchi, scaled reading in the upper legislative chamber on Wednesday.

The bill read: “Anyone who transfers funds, makes payment or colludes with an abductor, kidnapper or terrorist, to receive any ransom for the release of any person who has been wrongfully confined, imprisoned or kidnapped, is guilty of a felony and is liable on conviction to a term of imprisonment of not less than 15 years.”

Onyewuchi added that kidnapping has become a fast and lucrative business in the country as “it has now remained the most virulent form of banditry in Nigeria and the most pervasive and intractable violent crime in the country.”

“Kidnapping is on the increase in Nigeria and it is prevalent across all the geopolitical zones.

“Some blame the rise of this criminal activity on poverty, religion, politics, deficiency of existing laws, unemployment, connivance of security agents, corruption, and greed among others.

“Our unemployed youths are also turning out to kidnapping to get money (ransom) as a survival strategy.

“Whatever the reason, it is most obvious that kidnapping in Nigeria puts everyone at risk, the rich and the poor, old and young, male and female, foreigner or indigene, expatriate or non-expatriate, traditional rulers and religious leaders, among others.

“The reason behind payments of ransom is rooted on the fact that people easily identify with individual suffering.

“However, History has shown that even where ransom is proven to have been paid, the life or safe return of a kidnap victim may not be guaranteed.

“The continuous payment of ransom must not be encouraged; in addition, government should provide adequate security and strengthen the economy as a matter of urgency, accelerate its poverty alleviation programs, provide employment opportunities targeting youths who are mostly involved in abductions and kidnappings, strengthen our law enforcement agencies, and provide the necessary support to end the menace of kidnapping.”
