IN order to checkmate the activities of Boko Haram insurgency and religious extremism in the North, the 19 northern states governors yesterday inaugurated a Committee of Attorney Generals and Commissioners of Justice.
The committee is mandated to review criminal laws and proscribe the recruitment of new membership for the terrorist group.
The Committee members “were selected to critically examine the criminal justice system of the northern states vis-à-vis the current spate of emerging criminal offences prevalent in the region and determine how best to incorporate them into the Penal Code”.
Also the establishment of this Committee is said to be the direct outcome of one of the resolutions of the last meeting of the Northern States Governors’ Forum held last month in Kaduna.
