The trial of some identified sponsors of the dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram would commence in a couple of weeks, says the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
Malami said this during an interview with Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ on Monday, monitored by VANTAGE NEWS.
While refusing to name the identities of those involved, the minister stated that the prosecution will be done publicly when the time comes.
He said, “It has been a work in progress. Prima facie case seems to have been established, but proof of evidence has to be developed and eventually prosecution will take place,” Malami explained after several of such promises to arraign the suspects failed in the past.
“So, there is nothing that is hidden as far as prosecution is concerned; it is traditionally a public prosecution,” the AGF said against the backdrop of recent allegations of government compromise in bringing alleged sponsors of terrorism to justice.”
“In a couple of weeks, these people will be charged and arraigned in court. In a number of weeks, you will have something tangible and cogent by way of prosecution.”
