IS “DEATH”, THE PUNISHMENT FOR SNATCHING BALLOT BOXES IN NIGERIA.

Snatching of ballot boxes is an electoral offences and like all other electoral offences, it’s punishment is not death. The maximum punishment for snatching ballot boxes in any part of Nigeria is imprisonment for not more than 2 years.

Persons suspected of snatching electoral boxes are to be arrested by Police or private persons and handed over to Police. Then, Police can prosecute such suspects in court. It is only a judge after a trial in court that can declare punishment where an accused person (ie, suspect) is found guilty. No person has right to kill or beat any suspect of any crime including ballot box snatching.

My authorities are section 118(1)(j), section 118(2) and 158 of the Electoral Act, 2010.
