Nigeria: Efficacy of Anti-Terrorism Law
Leadership (Abuja), 9 March 2013
The coming into force of the Terrorism (Prevention) Act 2011 on June 3, 2012, has not brought relief for Nigerians. The Act prohibits acts of terrorism and other ancillary offences. Specifically, sections 1, 2, 3 and 33 of the Act aspire to bring the existence of organised hoodlums to an abrupt end.
