Senate To Pass Anti-Hate Speech And Jungle Justice Bills

President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has highlighted that due to the rising tensions in the polity, the passage of Bills to mitigate against hate speech and jungle justice will comprise a major part of the Senate’s social impact agenda when it resumes in September.





At this point in time, when people are heating up the political and social space with their utterances, the Hate Speech Bill will help to mitigate against verbal attacks or expressions against individuals or groups on the basis of ethnicity, religion, and even gender.



This will help to send a clear message with accompanying punitive measures to those negative elements in our society that are fond of distasteful comments that hurt, offend and provoke retaliation,” he said.



Saraki also stated that the Anti-Jungle Justice Bill (SB. 109), which is sponsored by Senator Dino Melaye, (APC-Kogi), will also help to curtail, protect and prohibit Nigerians across the country from meting out extra-judicial justice to perceived offenders without recourse to statutory legal channels.

Stupid senators. You have to pass a bill on jungle justice?! Pathetic bastards. What about murder? E no follow for crime? Until you get them on that area,the other one doesn't stand, ignorant scums posing as leaders. Before September,there might not be a Nigeria to pass a hate speech bill. Disgusting cretins.

Jungle Justice is happening because of our failed judicial system and corrupt police officers. Our people don't have faith in the judiciary anymore.

Jungle justice is unacceptable in any civilized society. We should not justify wrong actions like jungle justice by the populace because of the ineptitude of our leaders. Essentially, two wrongs do not make a right. Thanks.
