The Federal Government has officially declared bandits as terrorists.
The gazette proscribing bandit groups in the North as terrorists was made on November 25, 2021 by a court order but was unfolded on Wednesday.
The gazette was signed by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN).
The gazette said henceforth, bandits will face trial under the Terrorism (Prevention) Act 2021.
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, will be violating the provisions of the Terrorism (Prevention) Act 2011 and liable for prosecution.
