Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has signed the Anti-kidnapping, Abduction and Forced Labour Bill into law after its passage by the state House of Assembly.

Ganduje signed the bill‎ on Tuesday during the weekly State Executive Council (SEC) meeting at the Government House, Kano.

He said that the signing of the bill into law would reduce rampant cases of kidnapping and abduction in some areas of the state.‎

He added that “I am happy to assent to this anti-kidnapping bill as it will help the security agencies in the fight against kidnappers and their sponsors in the state.

“The law has been in existence since colonial era, but it did not provide serious punishment for kidnappers, therefore, the house has to amend it to suit the current situation.”

He explained that under the new law, any person found guilty of kidnapping would face life imprisonment without an option of fine.‎

‎Ganduje also signed the 2016 supplementary appropriation bill of N20 billion into law.

The governor commended members of the state assembly for putting the interest of the state first in considering bills.‎

Rivers, Enugu, Abia and Anambra are among the states that have signed the anti-kidnapping bill into law. (NAN)
