FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SET TO GAZETTE ORDER CLASSIFYING GUNMEN TERRORISTS

Date:

The Federal Government is set to gazette the Court order classifying bandits as terrorists.

The November 26, 2021 Judgment by Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja has also become a critical factor in the deployment of Super Tucano Aircraft in the fight against terrorists, kidnappers and bandits.

Also, the Attorney-General; and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said President Muhammadu Buhari would be guided by public interest while considering the request to release the detained Leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

On the process of gazetting the order declaring bandits as terrorists, he said the gazetting of a court order or judgement is a process, but what matters fundamentally within the context of international convention is the judicial declaration and that has been obtained.

The Minister said Government acted promptly in declaring IPOB and Boko Haram as terror groups because of the threats to lives and properties they have caused in the nation.

He stressed that government has a responsibility to act, but within the context of acting, must operate within the confines of international best practices associated with engagement.
