Bandits are now officially terrorists, FG issues official gazette

After much dilly-dallying over the issue, the Federal Government is now ready to call bandits by the name ‘terrorists’.

This move is contained in an official gazette on the proscription of banditry in Nigeria released by the Federal Government on Wednesday.

This was disclosed by Dr Umar Gwandu, the Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations to the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, in a statement released in Abuja.

The AGF had on Tuesday announced during his live appearance on the NTA programme “Good Morning Nigeria”, that the Gazette will be out soon.
