Outspoken activist, Dr. Peregrino Brimah has tweeted an additional option for Nigeria’s looters if they wish to avoid jail.
He said, “#GoodNews: Any corrupt official who wishes to avoid time in jail can be let off immediately if he opts for a Shariah hand slicing sentence.”
Mathew 5:30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell. [NIV]
Proposing that for Nigeria’s corrupt officials who will not want to be locked up in prison, they should be allowed to get their sentences by the Shariah courts across the nation who readily cut the hands of thieves in instant sentencing and allow the thieves to immediately go home to their families.

Responding to a twitter commentator, Dr. Brimah clarified: “Those are the punishment options after they return the moneys. We are giving them more choices…the choices petty thieves have.
