The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, SAN has come out to express the readiness of Nigeria towards ensuring an end to gender-based violence in the country.

He recently revealed this as the world celebrates this year’s International Women’s Day, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to a recent statement by the Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Office of the AGF, Dr Umar Gwandu, the Federal Government is focusing its significant attention on the issue of s*xual and gender-based violence, and is all working towards the establishment of specialized courts and Judicial Divisions that will focus on s*xual and gender-based violence.

He added that in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, the Complex Case Group under the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice is leading in the effort to bring suspected terrorists to justice.

His words, “Another emerging area of grave concern is the abduction and kidnapping of teenagers in boarding houses for ransom. The perpetrators targeted this group of people possibly to scare them from schooling. This is indeed a sad situation.”

“The Nigerian armed forces and law enforcement agencies are working day and night to combat insecurity, terrorism, kidnapping and abduction of people in the country.”

“We must work to prevent both male and female perpetrators from carrying out these acts and support those who have been victims.”
