FG to begin trial of 5000 Boko Haram suspects in detention

The trial of about 5000 suspected Boko Haram fighters in various detention facilities across the country will commence soon, Aliyu Abubakar, DG, Legal Aid Council, said Tuesday during a courtesy visit to Borno governor Babagana Zulum in Maiduguri.

Many of the suspects have been detained for years without trial in Giwa Barracks, Maiduguri, Kainji Correctional facilities, amongst others for their alleged involvement in insurgency.

The report noted that the trail of the suspected jihadist fighters would be carried out via the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation alongside office of the National Security Advisers in synergy with Theatre Command “Operation Lafiya Dole.”

Mr. Abubakar disclosed that his department has been saddled with the responsibility in providing defence for the inmates on commencement of the trial, Daily Trust reported.
