Self-confessed Boko Haram spokesman seeks Ndume’s ‘pardon’

Senator Ali Ndume

Five years after he told a high court judge that he was a former spokesman of Boko Haram, and that the present senate majority leader, Muhammed Ali Ndume, was a sponsor of the deadly sect, Ali Konduga, alias Azzawahiri, fresh out of jail, says his claims were false.

Mr. Konduga now wants Mr. Ndume to forgive him.

His quest for pardon took him to the Maiduguri home of Mr. Ndume on Wednesday where he was beaten by angry family members.

Mr. Konduga had claimed that as a Boko Haram spokesperson, he specialized in sending threat messages to politicians who were in opposition to the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said he did all that under the sponsorship of Mr. Ndume.

Mr. Ndume denied the allegation at the time. But the State Security Services, SSS, said it had details of phone contacts between the senator and Mr. Konduga.

One source told PREMIUM TIMES that “the man just came to the gate of the senator’s house and introduced himself as Ali Konduga, the one that implicated our boss as Boko Haram sponsor”.

“We were shocked but we held our cool and went inside to inform the family about his presence in the house; and when some of the senator’s younger brothers came out to clear their doubts about the visitor, they were shocked to behold Ali Konduga alias Azzawahiri staring at them.

“When they asked him his mission in the house, he said he was there to meet the senator and apologize to him for all the wrong he did to him.

“Before he could end his statement, the brothers descended upon him and beat the living light out of his life; it took the intervention of some persons who immediately called the police to save his life,” the source said.

At the time, Mr. Ndume was away in Saudi Arabia for the 2016 hajj (Islamic holy pilgrimage).

The senator confirmed the incident to PREMIUM TIMES.

“Yes, I was informed about the sad incident this evening that Ali Konduga of all people was in my house to apologize to me but ended up being beaten up by my younger brother,” he said by text message.

“I learnt the DSS had released him, and he was in my house to apologize. Though, he is not the kind of person I should welcome in my house, I was not happy with the way my younger brother treated him. Thank God he was taken to the GRA police station; and I have instructed that he should be taken to the hospital for treatment. But the police must allow him to tell the whole world how he was used,” Mr. Ndume said.

Mr. Ndume said before his trip, Mr. Konduga’s father had earlier approached him to apologise on behalf of his son.

A police officer at the G.R.A Maiduguri police station confirmed the development to PREMIUM TIMES.

The officer, who asked not to be named because the matter was being investigated, said Mr. Konduga to be mentally unstable.

“He was brought in on Wednesday evening by some persons who claimed he was trying to invade Senator Ndume’s house located along off Damboa road on Wednesday,” said the source.

“He had some bruises on him. We tried to find out what happened to him and he said he was there to apologise to the senator, just as those that brought him to the police station had also claimed.

“But from the way was speaking; he does not seem to be in his stable mind. So we want to take time to investigate his mission to the house since he returned home after his jail term, as we have also found out that he was in the house on the eve of Sallah. But was told that the Senator was not in town,” the police source added.

The SSS could not be reached for comments. There has been no known spokesperson for the service since 2015.

  • ndume is boko haram agent

    ALL of our coup Generals HEADED BY BINGO BUHARI aspired to be the richest lazy fools in the world–just by sitting like an over-fed baboon atop the tallest tree in our devastated and rotting vineyard, savoring their exploits amidst squalor, hunger and decaying corpses along the federal capital territory ati the Niger delta. General Muhammadu Buhari was one of such military heads of state that tried to destroy Nigeria more than 30 years ago. Aware everyone of our Luciferic military heads of state like Bingo Buhari, simply got up from bed one chosen morning, pistle around the hip, blood stained jackboots on their shaky Fulani legs–ready to besmear our constitution to loot our treasury to their hearts content. As we saw in his theft of our 2.8b and the Aisha Halliburton missing case files –They soon made up on the job for their lack of proper education and war or soldiering experience by detaining, tear gassing, shooting and bombing citizens protesting against their high-handedness and misrule in Nigeria via their Gestapo the DSS and EFCC-

    For the avoidance of doubt, Mr. President, Nigeria & Nigerians have changed. We have changed:

    – From being the largest economy in Africa;

    – From having an average 6% GDP growth per annum over the last 5years to a recession GDP of -2.38% in your first year in office;

    – To a country where 4.58million people have lost their jobs in 16 months of your leadership;

    – To a country where inflation has risen to 17.1% from the 9.6% that your admin inherited;

    – To a country with the worst performing currency in Africa & third worst in the world;

    – To a country where non-oil exports have fallen by 43.2% ;

    – To a country on the brink of what most western media calls the worst food crises ever seen happening in the North Eastern part of the country;

    – To a country where its citizens are increasingly unable to afford food and other basics (a bag of rice has gone from N9000 to N20, 000) & where hunger now reigns supreme, etc.

    MR. PRESIDENT, CHANGE BEGINS WITH YOU

    5. Mr. President, you need to realize that change begins with you. Indeed, change will come when you begin to fulfil the 81 promises you made during your campaign.

    6. Again, for the avoidance of doubt and in the event that you may have forgotten, these promises include:

  • Watch man

    I hear! Wonderful PR!

  • This is unbelievable…. Boko Haram visited a senator. Wonders shall never end in Nigeria.

    • Otunba

      Justice delayed is Justice denied! Can you blame them for fashioning out this? Unfortunately Nigerians have a very short and poor memory. He is the Senate’s Majority Leader now so what else?
