Elder Statesman, lawyer, and Second Republic Politician, Chief Guy Ikokwu, has spoken about the national commission for the prohibition of hate speech bill, sponsored by the deputy chief whip, Aliyu Abdullahi,
Ikokwu in an interview with Premium Times said that was not the first time the bill was introduced, adding that was introduced in the 8th Assembly.
He said: “It is not the first time it is being introduced. It was introduced in the 8th Assembly it was shot down and has now been brought back in the 9th Assembly.
“It is a bill that is dead on arrival because these are abnormalities. Even the people who are promoting it should be the first to be killed or hanged.
“You have to define what is hate speech, describe when it was made, who takes the decision and who kills and so on. Those who are promoting hate speech bill have been guilty of hate speech in the last 10 years.
“They should be killed first. There are things you tell a child and the child will look at you and say how can you be telling me this when you are guilty of it, you are not a good teacher.”
