Archbishop of Lagos, most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins

The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins, has referred to that capital punishment as unnecessary and does not serve as a deterrent.

The Archbishop, who frowned on the developing trend of jungle justice within the land, stated that if not checked, it could place back our judicial system and turning the nation to an era of pre-civilization.

According to him, capital punishment as being encouraged by some Nigerians, was not only inhuman, but additionally pointless in a civilized nation like Nigeria.
