Shehu Sani, former senator who represented Kaduna Central in the eighth assembly, has condemned the decision of the federal government not to disclose the identities of terrorism sponsors in the country.
Last week, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) included six Nigerians on its terror list.
Following the development, Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, in an interview on Channels Television on Monday, said the federal government is not interested in “naming and shaming” sponsors of terrorism in the country.
He said the suspected sponsors of terrorism will be dragged before the court of law.
“Naming and shaming won’t be the motive. Rather, bringing malefactors to justice would be it. Nigeria is not interested in naming and shaming anybody. Rather, it wants to bring them to justice,” Adesina had said.
While reacting to Adesina’s comment in a Twitter post, sani accused the Nigerian government of being complicit in terrorism if it will not expose the financiers.
He wrote: “If the Nigerian Government can’t expose the sponsors of terrorism, then it can’t absolve itself from the horror and tragedy our people experience every day of their lives.”
