Kidnapping now attracts   death sentence in Oyo State in the event that the kidnap victim dies in captivity.

However, a convicted offender will be liable to life imprisonment if the victim is released or rescued unhurt upon the payment of a ransom, while the kidnapper will be compelled to pay back the ransom.

Similar punishment awaits any person who procures, engages or gives information culminating in the kidnapping of a victim, an offence the law considered to carry the same weight of kidnapping.

These are the highlights of the new Kidnapping (Prohibition) Bill 2016 signed into law by the State Governor, Senator Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi, last Friday, copies of which were made available to journalists in Ibadan on Tuesday.

While signing the bill into law at the Executive Council Chamber of the Governor’s Office, Ajimobi commended the lawmakers for its accelerated passage, saying that it would help in curbing crime and criminal activities in the state.
