President Jonathan approves order proscribing Boko Haram, Ansaru members

Below is a press statement by the president's Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Reuben Abati.
President Jonathan approves order proscribing Boko Haram and Ansaru members; supporters, collaborators now face prosecution under terrorism prevention act.
President Goodluck Jonathan has formally approved the proscription of Boko Haram and authorized the gazetting of an order declaring the group’s activities illegal and acts of terrorism.
The order which has been gazetted as the Terrorism (Prevention) (Proscription Order) Notice 2013 affects both Boko Haram (Jamaatu Ahlis-Sunna Liddaawati Wal Jihad) and another group – Jama’atu Ansarul  Muslimina Fi Biladis Sudan, was approved by President Jonathan pursuant  to section 2 0f the Terrorism Prevention Act, 2011 (As Amended).
It officially brings the activities of both groups within the purview of the Terrorism Prevention Act and any persons associated with the two groups can now be legally prosecuted and sentenced to penalties specified in the Act.

The proscription order warns the general public that any person “participating in any form of activities involving or concerning the collective intentions of the said groups will be violating the provisions of the Terrorism Prevention Act”.

Section 5 (1) of the act prescribes a term of imprisonment of not less than 20 years for any person who knowingly, in any manner, directly  or indirectly, solicits or renders support for the commission of an act of terrorism or to a terrorist group.

For the purposes of subsection (1) of section, "support" includes -
(a) incitement to commit a terrorist act through the internet, or any electronic means or through the use of printed materials or through the dissemination of terrorist information;
 (b) receipt or provision of material assistance, weapons including biological, chemical or nuclear weapons, explosives, training, transportation, false documentation or identification to terrorists or terrorist groups;
(c) receipt or provision of information or moral assistance, including invitation to adhere to a terrorist or terrorist group;
(d) entering or remaining in a country for the benefit of, or at the direction of or in association with a terrorist group; or
(e) the provision of, or making available, such financial or other related services prohibited under this Act or as may be prescribed by regulations made pursuant to this Act.

Idiot!!!
Y is it now that election is around the corner that you are trying to act serious?
Nigerians cannot be fooled by you again.
What happened to all the countless lives that are already wasted while u were busy squandering Nigerians money with your cohorts?
Y did it take you this long to wake up????
Obviously you don't place any value on the lives and welfare of the Nigerian citizens.
Afo Anu....

I love how all this is coming together, now I am waiting, ANXIOUSLY for the reported list of boko haram sponsors. They have it, it's about time Nigerians get to know the men and women who have robbed them of sleep and peace of mind.

Do u even know what u're sayin. See ur mouth. Calling Jonathan as if he's ur mate. Pp will just come here and be sayin rubbish. U ds small boy of yesterday

Anonymous said...

The right move coming very late. But we can take consolation from the fact that now they've been rightly branded as terrorists there days are numbered and innocent nigerians can be safe again everywhere... God strengthen jonathan. God bless Nigeria

Anonymous said...

Why are Nigerians commending Jonathan? He just disgraced himself in the global view and has indirectly become a laughing stock!

How can a PHD holder offer amnesty to terrorist who killed lots of innocent people! It is after the World powers declared this so called people terrorist (which we were avoiding all these years), that the government realises they are actually terrorist!

Now the search is global and no longer national. Once these people have been caught, they will be treated as an international terrorist even though they are based in Nigeria.

He is doing something now only because USA made a move by offering money for boko haram leaders capture! Don't mind him, then he will take all the credit when it happens, even though it will be the Americans doing!

Granting Amnesty to torrorist who hs inflicted unfogetable pains in the mines of many Nigeria was actually unethical by president jona.... Never negotiate with those idiotic bastard. Anywhere kudus to world president Obama for his concern cos Nigerian's safety is uncertain.
