Written by on June 26, 2024

Peter Obi, has recommended that capital punishment be handed out to drug traffickers, as a way of stemming the tide of the menace in Nigeria.

Obi made the call in a series of tweets on X, as the world celebrates the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

He also advises the federal government to invest in rehabilitating those already caught in the web of drug abuse.

If you may recall, the Senate had on May 9, 2024, suggested the death penalty as the new maximum punishment for drug trafficking, as against previous life imprisonment.
