Financing of terrorism has been identified as a high risk in the nation’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML)/ Combating Financing of Terrorism (CFT) risk assessment and indeed the need for greater concerted effort to combat terrorism financing as envisioned in the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Action Plan which Nigeria is expected to implement before May 2025.

In particular, the FATF also has identified a need for greater collaborative efforts and overall coordination of counter-terrorism financing operations which are also within the mandate of the NCTC.
