    This guy should not be remanded, but rather he should be counselled that he should allow the girl grow up a little, these two are in love and should be left alone. The magistrate must be under some kind of influence.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
