The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Smart Adeyemi, has proposed the introduction of Shariah law to fight corruption in Nigeria.

Adeyemi stated this at a media retreat organised by the Senate Press Corps in Lokoja, Kogi State, themed “Democracy and Development in a Federation: Roles of Media, States and Parliaments”.

According to the lawmaker, public officers will not steal funds if their hands are cut off.

Adeyemi said that he was working on Bills to amend the Acts establishing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and would soon be introduced in the Senate.

“If we want this country to be great, we must look at some acts of parliament, moreso the ones that have to do with anti-graft agencies.

“Very soon I’m coming back to the chamber to bring bills on ICPC and EFCC. I want us to introduce Mosaic law, what you call Shariah law. By the time you cut the hands of 10 or 20 people in this country, nobody will want to steal again.

“If you say that is too harsh, let us have mechanised agriculture of about 200, 250 acres. Once you are involved in corruption, you will spend your life farming for us. We must look at how we can make Nigeria a better place,” he said.
