Many of the perpetrators of terrorist acts across the country are now in lawful custody as a result of the diligence and steadfastness of law enforcement agents and security operatives across the country.

President Goodluck Jonathan made this revelation Tuesday at a New Year service held at the Saint Anglican Church in Abuja.

According to him, adherents of the dreaded Boko Haram Islamic sect who attacked the Police headquarters in Abuja, the United Nations building and the Saint Theresa's Church in Madalla have been apprehended.
