In the spirit of creating a safe and secure environment for Benue people, the Benue State government yesterday, demolished two houses in Makurdi that belong to a notorious and most wanted kidnapper, Cephas Aondofa Shekere, a.k.a Azonto. The action is in line with the state's anti-kidnapping laws implemented by Gov. Samuel Ortom. Interestingly, the government's action won't just send a big message to Azonto, but many other people in the state. In this article, we will look at reasons why demolishing the allege criminal's house is a very good move:
1. The demolition will send a warning message to other criminals: The government's action has told criminals in Azonto's line of trade in Benue state that they should repent as soon as possible, change their ways, else, when they are caught(because they'll absolutely be caught one day), they'll be in loses, they'll lose all the properties they've used their criminally-acquired funds to purchase.
2. The demolition will put Azonto in pains and render him incapacitated: Now that Azonto's two house has been demolished & his family arrested, he has learnt a big lesson. He either has to come or die slowly. He will definitely become weak! I'm sure he has regretted ever going into kidnapping!!
Guys, do you agree that this action can discourage other criminals in the state from further crimes? Let's hear your views.
