LAGOS—President of the Association of Industrial Security and Safety Operators of Nigeria, AISSON, Dr. Ona Ekhomu has applauded the conviction and sentencing of four members of the Boko Haram terrorist group for multiple bombings and killings in parts of the Federal Capital Territory and Suleja, Niger State between March and July 2011.

Acknowledging what he described as courage and wisdom of the Abuja Federal High Court Judge, Justice Bilikisu Aliyu, Ekhomu stated  that terror trial judgments should show the capacity of the judiciary to contribute in combating terrorism.

Speaking with Vanguard  in Lagos, he called for capital punishment for terrorist crimes, saying, “the life which they took from innocent victims must be avenged”, even as he called for severe and swift justice for terror suspects, pointing out that justice delayed was justice denied.

Describing terrorism as “mala in se” meaning the personification of evil, Ekhomu advised Nigerian jurists to rebuff attempts by some unscrupulous lawyers to frustrate or delay trials by raising endless frivolous motions.
