Will the law allow a man profit from his own wrong doing? Will the law forbid Boko Haram from being proscribed on account that it’s not registered?

Is the smartest way to affront a society’s laws to keep an organization faceless and unregistered and in that protection wreak unremediable havoc on society? Is law to exist as a hater of society and as an antithesis to good sense? Should we not trust a fool to have better sense than to expect a terror group to seek and obtain registration before it can be said to exist, in spite of trails of blood it leaves? Are we going to use the excuse of a claim that IPOB is unregistered to clothe Boko haram with legal protection by default? Is law a vehicle to justice or a sole representative of justice by itself?
