The Senator representing Kogi Central in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, is sponsoring a bill that will make giving tribal marks illegal in the country.

The flamboyant Senator who has been involved in a lot of skirmishes in the Senate, took to his Twitter account to post the photo of a toddler with a decapitated face as a result of tribal marks.

Melaye who calls the act barbaric believes that the National Identity card is enough to identify individuals instead of tribal marks.

This is what the Senator wrote:

“This barbaric act must stop. National Identity card is enough to identify where individuals come from. Support my bill to stop this ….”

From the look of things, Nigerians are in support of Senator Melaye as many people have retweeted his original tweet.
