Terrorism Financiers: Nigerians Will Get Something Tangible In A Few Weeks — AGF, Malami

The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, on Monday, urged Nigerians to be patient with regards to the issue naming financiers of terrorism in Nigeria.

While appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today, the Justice Minister assured Nigerians that in a couple of weeks, the citizens will get something tangible to hold on to.

“You will be happy with what we are doing as a government in a couple of weeks. Perhaps these people will be charged and arraigned before the court of law,” the AGF stated.

The minister explained that the prosecution of those involved is a work in progress, one that cannot be categorized as to the time of conclusion.

“Proof of evidence will have to be developed, and then the prosecution will take place,” he stressed, adding that “there is nothing hidden; as far as prosecution is concerned, it is traditionally a public prosecution, nothing will be hidden both in terms of names, associated facts, and circumstances”.

The Attorney General further assured that processed have been consummated in line with the dictates of the law.

Malami’s comments on the burning issues come a few days after the Federal Government said it has uncovered 96 financiers of terrorism across the country, especially those backing Boko Haram and the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP).

Also, he said if he was not satisfied and if the reviewed electoral bill was against the public interest, he would advise the president accordingly.

Malami said this last night while featuring on Channels TV programme, Politics Today, monitored by our correspondent.

“If I am not satisfied, and I am of the opinion that it is against the public interest, the national interest, and against the dictates of the democratic process, I will advise accordingly.

“But then, one thing I can tell you is that we can all be interested in leaving behind a legacy of a lasting democracy that accommodates the interest of Nigerians,” he said.
