Charly boy seeks death penalty for corrupt officials | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, on Thursday, urged that corruption should be made a treasonable offence for it to be adequately tackled.

He made the call during a news conference put together by the “Occupy Unlimited” group, a civil society group that advocates good governance and corruption-free society.

Charly Boy, who is the National Coordinator of the group, said “corrupt leadership has been killing ordinary Nigerians slowly and steadily over the years.

“It is time to properly define it as ‘murder in disguise’, and treat as treasonable offence against our dear country.

“Over 180 million people are surviving at the mercy of few politicians who have mastered the art of creating division among her own people through religion, ethnicity, corruption, and frivolous issues.”

According to the social activist, death penalty should be introduced for all politically-corrupt persons in Nigeria if the nation really wants to be lifted out of economic hardship.

He noted that countries such as China and Pakistan were striving better because they decided to make corruption a crime that deserved capital punishment.

He advised that the immunity clause in the Nigerian constitution be reviewed, adding that “corruption is hiding under the immunity clause to loot and plunder.”

  1. True talk. If our leaders are sincere even let them forget about yesterday's fraud. Starting from today let the penalty for corruption be death sentence and any discovered previous loots be retrieved while the culprits are in jail. That way there will be sanity from these shameless idiots who are openly now shouting they have not been able to get back their election expenses. Is that not the night if corruption?

  2. I strongly support death penalty but these jokers who are corrupt themselves won't even raise it on the silly floor.

  3. China execute corrupt and satanic souls and live in peace. Unless these devils are eliminated from our societies, many Patriotic Citizens will be dying as a result of crooks among us.

  4. Supported. Long overdue
