Terrorism: FG Moves To Ban Okada In Nigeria

Following the continued activities of terrorists in Nigeria, the Federal Government is considering a ban on the use of commercial motorcycles known as Okada, and mining activities in the country.

The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said the measure would cut off funding of terrorists and bandits in Nigeria.

Malami spoke while addressing State House Correspondents at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday, after a meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was flanked by his Interior and Police Affairs counterparts, Rauf Aregbesola and Mohammed Dingyadi.

Malami said the meeting focused on the logistics used by the terrorists to stop their activities.

He said the government needed to act because terrorists had moved from the conventional ways of funding their activities to mining and ransom taking.
