‘We are taking our time’ Malami says on why FG has not named terrorism sponsors

‘We are taking our time’ Malami says on why FG has not named terrorism


Several months after the United Arab Emirate, UAE, jailed some Nigerian sponsors of terrorism, the federal government has failed to named sponsor of the deadly business.

In a television interview in Wednesday, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), gave reasons why the government is delaying on naming the sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria.

According to him, the government was not reluctant in naming the sponsors of terrorism but was only taking its time.

Nigerians have remained persistent on calls for the President, Muhammadu Buhari to publish the names of the sponsors.

“One thing that I think you need to take into consideration is that investigation is still ongoing and the fact that a lot of arrests were made.

“With the fact that judicial orders for the detention of those that have been arrested have been obtained, it is indeed out of place to conclude that nothing is being heard on the matter.

“Work is in progress. It will continue to be in progress and certainly we will do the needful at the right time,” Malami stated.

The AGF, while disclosing that the names include those of locally and internationally recognised individuals, said arrests have been made and that the government is not resting on its oars.

He said, “The fact remains that we have ever been working. There is no dull moment as far as the process is concerned. So, what I am saying in essence is that it is work in progress. Arrests were made, judicial orders were obtained and, indeed, we will do the needful”.

“No one will be spared as far as we are concerned as a government,” he added.
