Kwara State Government is set to review the State Anti-Cultism Law to include a minimum of 10 years and maximum of 14 years jail term for anyone found guilty of cult related activities, the State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Barrister Kamaldeen Ajibade, has said.
Ajibade, who said this while briefing journalists on the outcome of this month’s State Executive Council meeting, stressed that “this was part of efforts to check the menace of cultists in the state.”
Ajibade, who dispelled insinuations that it had whittled down the law against cultism in the state, assured that “if the bill is passed it would check the excesses of hoodlums”.
On the issue of Share/Tsaragi, Barrister Ajibade said the council agreed to harmonise the 2010 and 2016 white paper recommendations, adding that it took cognisance of various court cases in relation to the conflicts and would be guided appropriately.
Ajibade assured stakeholders that the state executive council would review the recommendations of the white papers at a later date to ensure permanent peace in the communities.
