According to a report by Premium Times, the Saraki-led Senate also approved death sentence for whoever engages in the act and a 30 years jail term for anybody that colludes with an abductor.

While presenting the report, Chukwuka Utazi (Enugu-North), said the bill sought to combat and prevent any form of kidnapping in Nigeria by giving wider powers to the Inspector-General of Police to ensure adequate policing of the crime.
