“Kidnappers condemn to death by hanging in Katsina”
The Katsina State Police Comand under the leadership of the State’s Police Commissioner, CP Sanusi Buba has reminded the general public that the punishment for kidnapping in the State under Section 243 of the Katsina state Penal Code as amended is “Death by hanging”.
This reminder is contained in a press release by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Gambo Isah and made available to newsmen including Katsina Post.
In the press release, the Police also warned people who now devised new tactics of calling or sending messages to some unsuspecting members of the public, that they are bandits or kidnappers from the forest, asking them to pay ransom or themselves or any member of their families risked being kidnapped to desist from doing so.
The Police also advised parents to be monitoring the activities of their wards as the law is no respecter of person and any person caught will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
