According to Osinbajo, anyone who is found guilty of any form of hate speech will be regarded as terrorists.
However, Osinbajo said the Terrorism Prevention Act 2011 as amended, defines terrorism as an act deliberately done with malice, which may seriously harm a country or is intended, or can be reasonably regarded as having been done to seriously intimidate a population.
The Acting President said: “Silence in such situations can only be seen as an endorsement.
“Hate speech and the promotion of the same through history from Nazi Germany and the extermination of Jews to the Rwandan genocide, succeeded in achieving their barbarous ends by the silence of influential voices.
“The silence of leaders at this time in our country, will be a grave disservice to our country, its peace, and its future.”
The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Wednesday, has on Thursday, declared hate speech as terrorism.
