The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is working to ensure a peaceful Nigeria, the country's attorney-general, Abubakar Malami, has declared.
Malami added that Buhari's government is making serious efforts to end impunity and create an effective opportunity for punishment for perpetrators of evil in the country.
A statement from Umar Gwandu, media aide to Malami, quoted the attorney-general as saying this during the 18th session of the assembly of state parties to Rome statute at the International Criminal Court (ICC), Hague, Netherlands.
Malami, the statement said, told participants at the event that the Boko Haram insurgency had been considerably diminished as a result of the efforts of security agencies and the neighbouring states.
“Nigeria is not a jungle, it is a peace and justice-loving country which is aspiring to develop and create a conducive environment for foreign and other investments, to generate jobs and create opportunities for the teeming population," Malami said while expressing optimism that the country will come out victorious from cases initiated against the country at the ICC.
Malami also noted that Nigeria is eager to work with parties to the statute just as he condemned threats against the ICC and its officials in some parts of the world.
Legit.ng earlier reported that a recent report showed that Malami may be aware of the arrest of his predecessor, Mohammed Adoke, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The report said this is against the earlier claim by Malami that he has not been informed about Adoke's arrest.
