FG set to resume court sitting on terrorism cases – Malami


The Federal Government has put machinery in motion to ensure the continuation of court sittings in New Bussa, Kainji, Niger State for the prosecution of Boko Haram cases.

Justice Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation, disclosed this in a statement issued by his spokesperson Umar Gwandu.

Malami reportedly said while receiving the Nigerian Ambassador to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Dr Eniola Ajayi.

The minister commended the ambassador for her tireless efforts and patriotism, recalling that Nigeria has cooperated fully with the court through the submission of relevant documents which eventually led to its exoneration.


“With due diligence to Nigeria’s mandate under Article 86 of the Rome Statute of ICC, Nigeria cooperated fully with the court through submission of relevant documents, reports of panels of enquiry,” he said.

Malami noted that a committee has already been established for the domestication of the Rome Statute in Nigeria.
