By Kalu Nwokoro Idika
Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has reaffirmed that the government’s panel will soon resume the prosecution of Boko Haram suspects.
While receiving the Nigerian Ambassador to Netherland, Eniola Ajayi, Malami said necessary measures were in motion to continue the special courts’ proceedings in Kainji, New Bussa, Niger State, for prosecution of suspected terrorists.
The AGF, in a statement by his spokesman, Umar Gwandu, said: “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, etc”.
He said a committee had already been established for the domestication of Rome Statute in Nigeria.
