Prince Dapo Abiodun, the Ogun State Governor, on Monday announced the proposal of the death penalty for kidnappers in the state.

The Chairman of Heyden Oil made this disclosure when the league of Islamic scholars paid him a Sallah visit at his Iperu Remo residence

“As a peace loving state, we are currently considering sending a bill proposing capital punishment for kidnapping to the House of Assembly,” he said.

Abiodun described kidnapping as an economic crime that must be stopped by all means.

He said most of the kidnappers are foreigners who disguise as herdmen, adding that it would be dangerous for the state to harbour such criminals.
