JUST IN: Nigerian government resumes prosecution of all Boko Haram suspects in detention

The Nigerian government has announced plan to resume the prosecution of Boko Haram suspects held in detention facilities in Kainji, Niger State.

The National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, stated this during a two-day High-level African Counter-terrorism Summit on Monday in Abuja.

According to Ribadu, Nigeria is not only prosecuting Boko Haram detainees but also actively gathering intelligence on the activities of Boko Haram and the Islamic State–West Africa Province (ISWAP).

He noted that this comprehensive approach aims to tackle the terrorist groups head-on and address the evolving security threats they pose.

Ribadu emphasized that the summit underscores Nigeria’s strategic commitment to the UN Counter-terrorism agreement.

He highlighted the diverse terrorist groups threatening Africa and stressed the importance of exploiting digital assets in countering terrorism.

On his part, Vladimir Voronkov, the Under Secretary-General for Counter-Terrorism at the United Nations Office on Counter-Terrorism, echoed the significance of collaboration among African countries in combating terrorism.

He emphasized that the success of the United Nations in addressing terrorism relies on African-based solutions.

The 2-day high-level summit convened leaders from across Africa, including President Bola Tinubu, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, and President Faure Gnassingbé of Togo.

Representatives from Chad and Niger also attended the summit, alongside over four hundred delegates from various African countries.

Organisers say the summit aims to generate solutions to the multifaceted security threats facing Nigeria and Africa.
