The Nigerian government has officially published in its gazette the declaration of two bandits’ groups operating in the North-western region of the country as terrorist organisations.
This followed a ruling of the Federal High Court in Abuja in November ordering the federal government to declare the activities of Yan Bindiga and Yan Ta’adda bandit groups as acts of terrorism.
