The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke (SAN), yesterday stated that the Federal Government had secured 11 convictions of Boko Haram members in the last one year.

He also disclosed that the government is currently working out a scheme of compensation and rehabilitation for victims of Boko Haram attacks in line with the recommendation of the Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North.

Adoke, who made this known at the 3rd Plenary of the 12th Session of the Assembly of State Parties, World Forum Theatre at The Hague, added that the Federal Government of Nigeria believes that the rehabilitation and compensation of victims of heinous crimes are matters of serious concern.

He said that in this regard, Nigeria is supportive of the Trust Fund for Victims of International Crimes, and called on State Parties to contribute generously to the Fund.

The AGF added that Nigeria remains committed to the ideals of the Rome Statute and greatly appreciates the work of the Court since its inception about 15 years ago.

According to him, “My delegation firmly believes that the Court can only succeed in its mandate with the cooperation and goodwill of State Parties. We are, therefore, naturally concerned about the frosty relationship between the Court and the AU, which appears to have worsened over the years”.
