Nigeria has identified, detained Boko Haram sponsors – AGF Malami


The federal government of Nigeria has announced that the sponsors of Boko Haram have been identified and are being held.

This was revealed by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in New York.

The AGF made it known that the government was detaining “high profile individuals” responsible for funding terrorists’ activities in the country.

Malami assured the Buhari administration was determined to take stringent measures to counter-insurgency.

“We have succeeded in identifying those that are responsible for funding terrorists”, he said.

“We have blocked the leakages associated with the funding and embarking on an aggressive investigation that is indeed impacting positively in terms of the fight against terrorism.

“Investigation is ongoing and for investigation, I wouldn’t like to be pre-emptive in terms of making disclosures that would have the effect of undermining the successes we are recording.

“One thing I can tell you for sure is that whatever we do in terms of detention and arrest is indeed backed by judicial process.

“We have indeed obtained a legitimate court order taking into consideration what we have presented before the court; the court eventually exercised its discretion in terms of granting orders that we can have them in custody,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian authorities are being lambasted for failing to publicize the names of Boko Haram financiers after the revelation by the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
