Insecurity: FG Finally Declares Bandits As Terrorists

Following the delay of the Federal Government in declaring terrorists as bandits, it has been reported that the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, has finally gazetted the court judgment that ordered the government to declare bandits as terrorists.

This was reportedly contained in a document released by Malami’s spokesman, Umar Gwandu, on Wednesday, showing that the AGF office had gazetted the court order.

The document read, “Notice is hereby given that by the Order of the Federal High Court Abuja, in suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/1370/2021 dated 25th November 2021 as per the schedule to this Notice, the Activities of Yan Bindiga Group, Yan Ta’adda Group, and another similar group in Nigeria are declared to be terrorism and illegal in any part of Nigeria, especially in the North West and North-Central Regions of Nigeria and are proscribed, pursuant to sections 1 and 2 of the Terrorism (Prevention) Act, 2011.”

It added, “Consequently the general public is hereby warned that any person or group of persons participating in any manner whatsoever in any form of activities involving or concerning the prosecution of the collective intentions or otherwise of the groups referred to in paragraph 1 of this Notice will be violating the provisions of the Terrorism (Prevention) Act, 2011 and liable to prosecution.”
