The Northern Youths Council of Nigeria expressed satisfaction at the Federal High Court in Abuja’s declaration of bandits throughout the country as terrorists.
On Friday, a Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Taiwo Taiwo ruled on an ex-parte request filed by the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Justice.
The organisation expressed excitement over the news in a statement jointly signed by its President, Isah Abubakar, and Director-General, Media and Publicity, Mock Samuel Kure, in Kaduna on Friday.
“We will welcome a complete military operation in the Northwestern and North Central regions of the country, as is occurring in the Northeast, against Boko Haram and ISWAP forces that have significantly reduced their operations,” the statement stated.
Additionally, the group asked the nation’s military services to go all-out against anyone viewed as providing moral support to the terrorists, whether materially, morally, or otherwise, regardless of their rank or position.
“The Northern Youths will join you in your efforts to eradicate terrorism in the North and throughout Nigeria,” it continued.
