The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, has again reiterated that the Muhammadu Buhari administration will not name sponsors of terrorism at the moment.

According to Malami, this is so it won’t jeopardise investigations.

The AGF stated this while speaking to journalists in New York, according to a statement by his spokesperson, Umar Gwandu, on Wednesday.

The Federal Government has faced a lot of criticisms lately for not naming terror sponsors despite the help offered to Nigeria by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other countries.
