First, it was the same s3x bill which has stirred controversy worldwide. Now, our president has proposed another.
This new bill states a death penalty should be meted on people â€œwho hack into the Critical National Information Infrastructure or computer networks resulting in the loss of livesâ€.
If the offender causes grievous body injuries to another person, the bill states that he/she will be sentenced to 15 years in prison. But using any computer network for terrorism attracts life sentence.
The bill will also criminalizes child pornography (a 10-year jail term or a fine of N 20 Million or both) and forcing children to engage in se3ual activities (a 10-year jail term or a fine of N 15 Million).
Is death penalty a fitting punishment for a cybercrime offender? I’m never in support of death penalty for any human no matter the offence. What do you think guys?
