In a new bill by the Senate, any person found guilty of any form of hate speech that results in the death of another person shall die by hanging upon conviction. The hate speech bill, which has passed second reading in the senate, has generated a lot of opinions since the pubic got to know about it .
Nigerians are afraid that this new bill if it becomes law may be used against political opponents by unscrupulous members of the political elite, it might also gag journalists and ordinary citizens and trample on the right to freedom of speech.
What do you think??
