Reinstitute death penalty to help curb ritual murders– PNC

The People’s National Convention (PNC) is urging the government to reinstate the death penalty, which has been in place in the country’s laws but has not been used in more than 30 years.

According to the PNC, the law must be applied to ritual murderers.

“The PNC believes that the only way to stop these ritual murders is for the government to reinstate the Death Penalty, which is still on our books, in order to save women and children and deter others from following in their footsteps,” the party said in a statement on Sunday, September 25.

“Retaining ritual murderers in prison would only result in financial loss to the country,” said a statement signed by General Secretary Janet Asana Nabla.

It also advocated for the arrest of all spiritualists involved in ritual murders.

“It is past time to consider registering all individuals who claim to be ‘traditional doctors’ with the ability to heal or ease people’s financial or spiritual difficulties.” Their activities could thus be monitored.”

This comes after several cases of ritual murders in the country, the most recent being in Mankessim, where a prospective nursing student was buried in a room by a chief and a pastor.

According to the PNC, the government must order the National Communications Authority (NCA) to prohibit all television programs from advertising ritual money.

“In general, television programs that contain scenes that seek to encourage ritual killings, such as Kumawood and Nollywood films, should be prohibited from airing on national television.”
