“Such declaration to be done through a proscription order can be done pursuant to section 2 of the Terrorism Prevention Act, 2011 (As Amended).

“Such an order will officially bring the activities of bandits and their sponsors within the purvey of the terrorism prevention act. And any person associated with such groups can then be prosecuted and sentenced to penalties in the act.”

Meanwhile, the federal government has refused to tag bandits as terrorists despite repeated calls by Nigerians to do so. On the other hand, Ahmad Gumi, the controversial cleric has called for amnesty for bandits.
