The Nigerian government has set aside 500 million naira to prosecute some Boko Haram militants and other suspected criminals in the country.
More than 10,000 people are expected to be prosecuted and fined, according to the 2022 budget proposed by the Ministry of Justice.
Nigeria is facing a crisis of terrorism where thousands of suspects have been detained for years in various parts of the country.
Amnesty International has repeatedly reported the deaths of suspected Boko Haram members in detention centres.
Many arrests have been done, but suspects spent years in detention without trial.
