Senator Ndume gave AGF’s mobile number to Boko Haram – SSS

Senator Ali Ndume

More drama as details regarding Ndume’s transaction with Boko Haram emerges.

 

An Assistant Director with the State Security Services, SSS, James Ineh, told the Federal High Court on Wednesday that a Senator, Mohammed Ndume, gave the telephone number of the Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke, to the Boko Haram.

Mr. Ndume, a serving Senator from Borno, is standing trial for allegedly having links with Boko Haram.

The accused has, however, said he established the link to facilitate peace as a member of the Presidential Committee on Security in the North East Zone.

Mr. Ineh, who was the Chairman of the Special Investigation Panel, SIP, set up to investigate Mr. Ndume, said that a former spokesman of Boko Haram, Ali Konduga, revealed the information to the panel. He said Mr. Konduga informed the panel that the senator provided him with the telephone number of Mr. Adoke.

The witness allegedly told the panel that the number was used to bargain a governorship petition filed by the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Borno state.

Mr. Ineh said that the former Boko Haram spokesman testified that the calls to Mr. Adoke were threats to spur him to influence the Governorship Election Tribunal members to cede the state’s election victory to PDP or risk mayhem in the State.

He explained that the name of the Attorney General was dragged into the panel report submitted on November 25, 2011 on the grounds that his GSM number was found in Mr. Konduga’s telephone set.

Mr. Ineh, in his testimony, further said that the items found in the senator’s telephone were indicative of his close connection with the dreaded group.

“The fact that Konduga was tried and convicted of terrorism acts is enough to show that the accused is also liable,’’ he said.

The judge, Gabriel Kolawole, adjourned the suit to November 1, November 5 and December 11.

    KONDUGA WAS TRIED AND CONVICTED OF TERRORISM ACTS NOT MEMBERSHIP OF BOKO HARAM, THE FIRST CHARGE AGAINST HIM! HE LIKE THE RECENT BOKO HARAM “COMMANDER” CAPTURED IN ALI MODU SHERIFF’S HOUSE ARE POLITICAL THUGS WHICH THE GOVT AND THE MILITARY IS USING TO COVER UP THEIR FAILURES. A DRUG ADDICT DOES FIT THE PROFILE OF A PURITANICAL JIHADIST WILLING TO GIVE UP AN INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS, HIS FAMILY AND ENTIRELY WEALTH TO THE CAUSE LIKE THE FIRST SUICIDE BOMBER IF THE SECURITY AGENCIES WILL CONTINUE TO CHASE SHADOWS THERE WILL BE NO SOLUTION TO THIS BOKO HARAM CRISIS. FORGET ABOUT A POLITICAL LINK BETWEEN BOKO HARAM AND ANY NORTHERN POLITICIAN OR POLITICAL PARTY, IT DOESNT EXIST. THOUSANDS OF NIGERIAN HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES BECAUSE THE NIGERIAN GOVT REFUSE TO ACCEPT THAT BOKO HARAM IS BEYONG ALL EMIRS, ELDERS AND POLITICIANS IN THE NORTH OR ANY WHERE IN NIGERIA. SHEIKH YUSUF DISREGARDS THE SULTAN WHEN HE WAS ALIVE, HE GAVE THE EMIRS OF KANO, MAI OF BORNO AND ALL TRADITIONAL RULERS THE DEROGATORY NAME IN HAUSA OF “SARAKAN GARGAJIA”. HE AND HIS FOLLOWERS REFUSED TO FAST WHEN THE SULTAN ANNOUNCE, THEY DONT DO THE EID WHEN THE REST OF US DO EID.
    THE PRESIDENT’S INFERIORITY COMPLEX AND COWARDICE IS MAKING MATTERS WORST. HE SAID ONCE IN A CHURCH THAT BOKO HARAM ATTACK INNOCENT NIGERIANS BECAUSE “SOMEBODY DONT WANT TO SEE YOUR FACE”. ALLUDING TO A NORTHERN CONSPIRACY TO UNSEAT HIM AS A WAY TO GAIN FAVOURS FROM THE SOUTHERN PEOPLE AND CHRISTIANS IN GENERAL. HE MISCHIEVOUSLY REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BOKO HARAM TROUBLE BEGAN IN 2007. CULMINATING IN THEIR HEARTLESS MASSACRE IN 2009 BY YARADUWA, THE ONLY PRESIDENT THEY DECLARED A FATWA ON.

        GO FIND OUT ABOUT HIS CONVICTION FIRST, HAVARD EDUCATED MAN!. HE WAS ACQUITED BY THE COURTS OF THE CHARGE OF MEMBERSHIP OF BOKO HARAM, AND THREE OTHER CHARGES. HIS ACTUAL CONVICTION WAS NOT EVEN ON TERRORISM IT WAS EXTORTION ACCORDING TO THE COURTS, BECAUSE HE POSED AS BOKO HARAM MEMBER TO OBTAIN MONEY BY DECEIT!

    I think there are questions to clear the complicity or otherwise of the senator, Mr Mohammed Ndume. The prosecution should get to know when he began connecting Boko Haram members through phone which the service providers could help with. How he, Ndume also came to be a member of the Presidential Committee on Security in the North East Zone should be inquired into. He should also be asked what he knew about the Boko Haram which made him think he could be useful enough to serve on the security committee. He should be questioned severally with refashioned questions to confirm or refute what he had answered earlier.To nail him if he is culpable is very possible only if the prosecution could provide the trial judge enough evidence to sentence him. But some times, I fear government prosecutors because some of them work as if nothing is really at stake. It is the carefree attitude of a government attorney that a relation who was murdered by her husband is yet to get justice. One of them even indirectly asked us for money and when given, he took it yet he did not have the strength and legal expertise to conclude the case. It is well.
