Washington DC [United States] March 15 (ANI): The officials of the US State Oklahoma have announced to use nitrogen gas as a preferred method of execution, when it resumes using the death penalty, making it the first US state to do so.
Hunter and Allbaugh made an announcement that the state will move forward with executions by the method of "inert gas inhalation."
Hunter said, "We can no longer sit on the sidelines and wait for the drugs. Using nitrogen will be effective, simple to administer, easy to obtain and requires no complex medical procedures."
Authorities will work together over the coming months to develop new protocols, the two men added.
However, it is unclear as to when the executions will resume.(ANI)
