Buhari Govt Finally Declares Bandits As Terrorists

The Government of President Muhammadu Buhari has finally declared bandits as terrorists.

The declaration is contained in a gazette proscribing their existence and restraining any person or group of persons from participating in activities of bandit groups.

This follows weeks of footdragging, after Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja, granted an ex parte application for Yan Bindiga (Hausa word for gunmen) and Yan Ta’adda (Hausa word for terrorists) to be declared as terrorists

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has now gazetted the court judgement.
