New Law: Sharing Fake News In Kenya Now A Crime

Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta has signed the controversial Computer and Cyber-Crimes Bill 2018 into law.

The Act – which spells out stiff punishment to cybercriminals – provides for timely and effective detection, prohibition, prevention, response, investigation and prosecution of computer and cybercrimes.

It deals with offences relating to computer systems including but not limited to unauthorised access, unauthorised interference, unauthorised interception, unauthorised disclosure of passwords, cyber espionage, false publications, child pornography, cyber terrorism and wrongful distribution of obscene or intimate images.

Following the passing of the Bill, generating and spreading fake news on social media could now land you in jail for at least five years, or leave you with millions of shillings to pay in court fines.

WhatsApp group administrators who condone sharing of fake news or information meant to incite ethnic hatred are also marked for severe punishment.

The Computer and Cyber Crimes Bill, 2018 sought to provide a framework that will prevent and control the threat of cyber crimes and other offences committed by means of computer systems.

One such crime is drafting, publishing and spreading false information, popularly known as “fake news.” The bill, tabled in the House by Majority Leader Aden Duale, proposed a Ksh.5 million fine or two years imprisonment for those found guilty of spreading fake news.

“Fake news is an offence under this bill, even when you receive fake news and forward it to another person, that’s an offence in this bill,” Duale had said.

Cultists Reveals The Consequences of Putting on His Red Regalia

A member of the Eiye Confraternity, Azeez Idris, paraded by the Lagos State Police Command alongside 15 others, allegedly said whenever he puts on his red regalia it means that somebody must be killed.

The state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, during the parade said Azeez Idris, as the leader of the Eiye Confraternity in Ilasan, confessed to the killing of many citizens in that location.

“He told the police that once he puts on his red regalia it means that somebody must be killed.

I haven’t killed anyone since I was initiated in 2016

But the suspect denied, saying: “I am a member of Eiye cult confraternity. I was initiated in 2016 by a friend called Honey.

Since I became a member of the cult, I haven’t killed anyone. The clothes I wore while sleeping is what the police alleged is the cult uniform. “I have gone to prison before for a related offence.

I was in Kirikiri for over three months before I was released. Because the police officer knows my house that is why they came to my house to arrest me. “The police officer said we were the ones terrorizing the community. I am not the leader of the gang. The current leader of the gang, Jide, is serving a jail term, while the founding leader is Andrew.

“Members of the gang usually contribute money to assist each other. The weapons recovered by the police were found in Andrew’s house. He said he is using the weapons at the site. He was the gang leader in the previous administration before Jide, who is now in prison, took over. Another member of the gang paraded, Andrew Awalebi, popularly called Flying Bird, confessed that he was initiated into the group in 1990 by one Efrebor.

He confessed to being a two-time ex-convict and had at one time been charged to Ebute-Meta Magistrate’s Court as a result of inter-cult clashes in Ajah/Lekki areas in which many lives were lost.

“I was a cultist before now but I am no longer a cultist. I was arrested in my house. I have been arrested for cult related activities.” Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said nine of the cultists, who have made life a nightmare for the inhabitants of Jakande Estate and Lekki area of Lagos State, were arrested on May 9, at Jakande Estate, Lekki, Lagos based on their mission to attack rival cult group.

Weapon recovered from the suspects include a locally made single barrel pistol, two battle axe, two daggers, one cutlass, charms and a pair of red regalia. The other cultists were nabbed in Ketu area of Lagos. CP Edgal Imohimi noted that the suspects will be charged to court at the end of the investigation.

The 17-year-old, who according to Russian State TV has confessed to the crime, has not been able to provide a motive for the killings but told police: "I was sleeping, then I woke up, took a knife and killed."

According to local media, the young woman was training to become an economist.

After allegedly stabbing his mother and sister to death, the teenager left the city and went to the Krasnodar Krai region in south-western Russia where he was arrested near the Black Sea on May 13.

Police Warn Doctors Over Rejection of Gunshot Victims

The Lagos State Police Command on Wednesday warned hospitals and doctors to henceforth desist from rejecting gunshot victims, saying such act constitutes a flagrant violation of an existing law.
Edgal Imohimi
Reacting to a media report on the refusal of an hospital to treat a victim who was shot and wounded by armed robbers, the police said it must be noted that doctors who do so are criminally liable on account of the provision of the Compulsory Treatment and Care of Victims Of Gunshot Act, 2017.

In a statement by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, the police said it would henceforth arrest and prosecute any medical practitioner who rejects gunshot victims on the ground of police report.

“The attention of the Nigeria Police, Lagos State Command, has been drawn to the Punch Newspapers publication of Monday, May 14, 2018, captioned ” Hospital rejects victim over bullet injuries.”

“The story goes that one Engr. Adebayo Akinwunmi, a senior engineer with an Information and Communications Technology company, was shot and wounded by armed robbers in his house at Ofada-Mokoloki, Ogun state and was brought to Reddington hospital, Ikeja for treatment only to be refused admission on the unlawful and inexcusable grounds that there was no police report.

“The Command considers the action of the hospital as cruel; perhaps, an indication that the hospital management may be ignorant of the “Compulsory Treatment and Care of Victims Of Gunshot Act, 2017,” Oti said.

He said the Act demands that every hospital in Nigeria whether public or private ‘shall accept or receive for immediate and adequate treatment with or without police clearance any person with a gunshot wounds.’

“The Act, however requires the hospital treating such a patient to report the fact to the nearest police station within two (2) hours of commencement of treatment,” Oti clarified.

He said the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Imohimi Edgal was saddened by the allegation against the said hospital, and had henceforth directed the arrest and prosecution of any medical practitioner who violates the law.

“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Imohimi Edgal, saddened by the allegation against the Reddington Hospital, has directed all Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers in Lagos State to henceforth arrest and diligently prosecute any medical practitioner who rejects a gunshot victim on the ground of no police report.

“The CP wants doctors to note that the Act recommends a 5-year-jail term for any person, hospital or authority who stands by or omits to do his bit which results in the unnecessary death of any person with bullet wounds,” Oti said.
