Political Thugs Risk 7-Year Jail In Borno


Borno State governor, Prof Babagana Umara Zulum, has assented to the state’s Criminal Justice Administration Laws 2023, Amendment Bill that prescribed seven years imprisonment to anyone guilty of political thuggery.

The governor assented to the bill alongside eight other bills passed by the State House of Assembly at the government house, on Wednesday in Damaturu.

Zulum said it was a proactive measure taken to curtail the increase in number of reported cases of raping and political thuggery in the state.

“Therefore, those found involved in political thuggery risk seven years imprisonment, and their sponsors will not go unpunished,” he said.

He noted that within the last four years, the Executive had sent over 80 bills to both the 9th and 10th Assembly.

Zulum commended the state assembly for the cordial working relationship accorded to him as the governor of the state.
