Nigeria’s senate proposed a draconian law that would stifle speech and make it a crime to criticize the country on social media. Critics stand the chance, if convicted, to be sentenced to a seven year prison term or a 5Million Naira fine.

The Senate has reached an advanced stage to pass a bill that seeks seven years jail term for social media critics found guilty of inciting the public against the government.

The proposed legislation which has scaled second reading in the upper legislative red chamber of the National Assembly indicates the following:

“Anyone who intentionally propagates false information that could threaten the security of the country or that is capable of inciting the general public against the government through electronic message shall be guilty of an offense and upon conviction shall be sentenced to seven years imprisonment or N5 million (fine).”
