Death By Hanging For Hate Speech Offenders In Nigeria Senate's New Bill...

Any person found guilty of any form of hate speech that results in the death of another person shall die by hanging upon conviction, reads a new bill by the Senate.




The bill, which reflects the growing concern over the spate of violence in the nation, was sponsored by the spokesman of the upper chamber, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi (APC, Niger).

It also seeks the establishment of an 'Independent National Commission for Hate Speeches', which shall enforce hate speech laws across the country, ensure the elimination of the menace and advise the Federal Government.For offences such as harassment on the grounds of ethnicity or racial contempt, a culprit shall be sentenced to "not less than a five-year jail term or a fine of not less than N10 million or both."

The bill notes: "A person who uses, publishes, presents, produces, plays, provides, distributes and/or directs the performance of any material, written and/or visual, which is threatening, abusive or insulting or involves the use of threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, commits an offence, if such person intends thereby to stir up ethnic hatred, or having regard to all the circumstances, ethnic hatred is likely to be stirred up against any person or person from such an ethnic group in Nigeria."

So tired of this country called Nigeria. There will be no hate speech if people don't wait too long in the labour market after graduating. There will be no hate speech if the standard of education improves,There will be no hate speech if those at the top are accountable,There will be no hate speech if .......

  8. To be sincere this is good as all these hate speeches are practised majorly in the north. Most especially after their Friday prayers where some of them preach against the Christians being infidels. Or where they say one political party is haram and should not be voted for. This in turn gingers their illiterate followers who take laws into their hands.
