Looters should have their hands amputated and hung to death —House of Reps member says

A member of the House of Representatives, Umar Yakubu Barde has advocated for the amputation of hands of those found guilty of stealing from the Nation's treasury. Speaking in an interactive session with the some journalist in Kaduna state yesterday January 18th, Barde who is a PDP member representing Chikun/Kajuru Federal Constituency of Kaduna State, said those who stole in millions of Naira should have their hands amputated, while those who looted in billions of Naira should be hanged to death.


He called for special court rather than the conventional courts, saying that looters usually use such courts to delay justice.
“I am a believer of the fact that, people should be punished for whatever offence they commit. And I am also of the belief that punishment should also be segregated according to the offence. At least, your punishment should be commensurate with what you have done. For me, if you ask me, if someone steals from N1million to N100 million, they should cut his hand. Yes, there is nothing wrong with that, so that when we see him, we will know yes, he stole. And those that steal from billions upward should be hanged and their property confiscated. You can imagine this issue of arms deal. If you knew this money was meant for the procurement of arms, weapons, my brothers and sisters here, if you have a brother in the Army, he is sent to the warfront and because his weapons are archaic, he is killed. Do you now want to have sympathy for someone who knows that the money was meant for arms and he pocketed it? It is so painful, we have lost loved ones. If I am a judge and such a person is brought before me, I will confiscate his property and make sure he is killed also. Because he is guilty of the blood of the people killed in the warfront. We are living in a very funny country where people steal N1, 000 and they are put in jail for years. And where some people will steal billions and use that same billion to escape justice. That is not good enough. For me personally, let me let the cat out of the bag, some members of the National Assembly and I are of the believe that, we should have special courts for corruption cases. Because, if you look at the quantum of corruption in the country today, we are just talking about Dasuki Gate and look at the quantum of money and the number of people that are involved. You have not gone to the ministries yet. You have not even gone to the states and it is only ICPC and EFCC that are to do all these jobs. If we are fair to ourselves, the work is overwhelming. And you know, people will want to use the legal system to delay justice, and that is what is happening today. So, why don’t we have dedicated courts to handle all these corruption cases, so that justice could be dispensed quickly? I am aware of former governors who have cases with EFCC and they have not gone to court for the past eight years. So, this does not encourage the young people. It rather encourages them to steal, because if you can delay justice for 10 years, it means that is a good one. So, I think we need to put our heads together because corruption like hunger, does not know party, it does not know tribe or religion. We must as Nigerians take a very bold stand” he said.

God bless this man for such thought. In countries like China and some other Asian nations, the penalty for stealing even $30k is death. Its high time we woke up to the act that corruption is tantamount to murder because these same people deny us the money to fund our hospitals, military, safe roads etc..

As far as I am concerned no senator or member of d house is free from corruption. So start by stretching out ur hands for amputation otherwise shut up.

If Sharia law was all about people looting our money and destroying our economy, I wouldn't hesitate to raise my hands and legs up in support of it. Some of us might not really understand the rate at which this nation has been looted. If all the money that has been squandered by different individuals for their private gains had been utilized at least on the educational, agricultural and infrastructural sectors of this country accountably since independence, there's no way we would be were we are today. WE NEED DRACONIAN LAWS IN A COUNTRY LIKE OURS so people can learn to respect themselves more. China is a good example.

You are right. Buhari should choose judges with integrity to judge the cases so that the looters will not be able to bribe them. The looters are insisting on being charged to court so that they can bribe the judges and use their lawyers to delay the cases. Buhari should set up a seperate panel to judge cases of corruption with instant judgement.

Emmy Igwe said...

Please, this is not a sharia country. Let the normal punishment be given to them. I think Nigeria has her own punishment for offenders.

Exactly! In as much as his suggestion may sound much like a sharia law and thus arousing religious fanatics disagreement, but what I know an believe is we should introduce a very stiff punishment for corruption. That's the only way to go. It was when China did dis that dey began to grow economically and today heading back to back after America. I detest how less concerned our youths speak when economic issues are brought up. Thats why we can never be that leaders of tomorrow. Wake up Nigerian youths do something reasonable with ur data sometimes and not just to crack jokes and have fun online.

Yes. Let's bring in sharia law. Also anyone who gains wealth that is more than their nass salary during their tenure in office should have their eyes plucked out first and their tongues cut and their balls cut off and then stoned to death. I bet you will be the first victim because I know what it costs to run election in Nigeria these days. Show me how you made all that money and how you plan to recoup

He talk as if he is not one of the looter of public funds. That is why they are called politicians the no how to talk,he is painting other black while he paint himself white as if he is a saint. We all no that from 1960 till date no politicians will come out and say he has never stolen public funds during his tenured in office,because they are all thief. They are always not satisfied with what they have. The major problem of Nigeria politicians is that they are very greedy. Unless that bad habit of greediness is eliminated among other political leaders,Nigeria as a nation will never,ever develop and reach it potential even in the next 50years to come Nigeria will not reached the promises land. We need to change the way we think,the way we approach problem and the way we solve those problem. Nigeria is to bless to be wasted.

Umar Yakubu Barde is not a Muslim but a Christian. I know him he is a friend, we did MSc Agricultural Economics together in ABU Zaria. What this man is saying makes alot of sense. We need dedicated courts to handle corruption cases......Nigerians complain about corruption but when someone is caught and been punished they begin to get sentimental. The comments I have read here today clearly show that an average Nigeria supports corruption, and if they ever get "there" they will do more. It is a shame!!

I like this your idea very well. But you must not cry foul when most of the people with amputated arms are northerners. In case you don't know it, this country has been ruled by northerners for the greater part of 40 years. They instituted corruption as a way of life and elevated mediocrity instead of merit with their 'educationally disadvantaged' and 'quota' bullsh*t. Just in case you have a log of wood in your eyes, let me spell it out for you: northerners don't have any source of income other than governance. That is their workshop and 'na where person dey work na him in dey chop'.

If someone who's educated and enlightened have to speak in this manner in judging looters, then we have no need blaming Boko Haram men for lack of education. The reason for Boko Haram existence is not far-fetched from this fool's existence, if he can suggest judgement in this manner and also wish if he was a judge and such punishment he mentioned above be metted on looters, then Boko Haram have every sense of reasoning unlike we all thought they don't. Same reason I've always said that Boko Haram existed and would probably be existing for a very long time because the northerners have this myopic way of thinking and life style and just as the bible said it "those who live by the sword, die by it". The northerners in this case reason all alike, the Boko Haram, so it shouldn't be surprising seeing them killing by same men. An information to the house of Reps member who said, the style the present administration to carry out their anti-corruption fight will surely hunt them back soon, I mean very soon! Just read my lips, its gonna do them more damage than the glory they wish to take for it.

The real issue is a broken system, with no real structures in place to discourage corruption. A legal system that needs to be fixed, for speedy trial, modern jail houses to lockup offenders. And a more sensitised population that can look at issues dispassionately without falling back to religious or ethnic lines. If we really want Nigeria great, then we must see her as one entity. Then and only then, will politicians not use us, play us and abuse us and our resources.
