A group which identified itself as Voice of the Voiceless yesterday protested at the National Assembly to demand a legislation which would prescribed death penalty as punishment for corruption in the country.
In seperate letters they addressed to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, the protesters asserted that there was no way Nigeria would make progress if corruption in public office was not brought under control.
The group noted in the letter to the House, signed by its National Coordinator, Mr. Oliver Ezeala, that, “Corruption, as we are all aware of, has eaten so deep into the fabric of this great nation and we are strongly advocating the death penalty to anybody who is found guilty of corrupt practices, no matter how highly-placed such an individual is in the society.
