Criminals and more terrible crimes!!! Yet no leader has been convicted or jailed for their fraudulent acts! 🤐. Anyway, Nigeria Records Second-Highest Number Of Death Sentences In 2016
Nigeria handed down 527 death sentences in 2016, tripling 2015’s figure and placing it second only to China in death sentences recorded throughout the world in 2016.
According to the human rights organization, 2016’s figure represent a “massive and worrying” spike from 2015, as and when the country recorded 171 death sentences.
“By handing down more death sentences last year than any other country except China, Nigeria has tripled its use of this cruel and inhuman punishment and skyrocketed up the shameful league table of the world’s death penalty offenders,” said Damian Ugwu, Amnesty International’s Nigeria Researcher.
