The Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi wants the death penalty for kidnappers in the state.
He said he wants that as he feels that is what can put an end to kidnapping.
He disclosed this during a courtesy visit by the traditional rulers of Iwo land to Gov. Gboyega Oyetola in Osogbo yesterday.
His words, “We traditional rulers want to beg the governor on behalf of other royal fathers to strictly enforce a harsh penalty for kidnappers when apprehended.
“If possible it should be death penalty instead of life imprisonment as the case may be.”
“I am convinced that when a death penalty is enforced, that will make the perpetrators to have a rethink and by that, the evil act might be reduced or stopped.”
“I want the success of this administration with the support of the royal fathers and the citizens.
“We want you to create a synergy between chairmen of local governments and traditional rulers in the area of Internally Generated Revenue through taxation, mining, among others.”
