Nigeria labels bandit gangs ‘terrorists’ in bid to stem violence – Al Jazeera

Jan 7, 2022

Nigeria’s government has labelled criminal gangs as “terrorist” organisations. The gangs are blamed for mass kidnappings.

Earlier this week, soldiers rescued 97 hostages, who were abducted more than two months ago.

The classification will lead to harsher penalties.

Al Jazeera’s @Fidelis Mbah reports from Abuja, Nigeria.
