Senator Ndume told Boko Haram to threaten the Attorney General of the Federation– SSS

The State Security Service on Wednesday told an Abuja Federal High Court that Senator Aliyu Ndume asked a self-confessed spokesman of the violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram, Ali Kodunga (a.ka Al-Zawahiri), to call and threaten the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice,Mohammed  Adoke (SAN).

Konduga has since been convicted on two counts of criminal breach of public trust and intimidation through anonymous communication. He is currently serving a three-year prison term.
 

The SSS said it made the discovery when Ndume’s mobile telephone call logs were analysed during investigations. The Senator  is facing terrorism charges brought against him by the Federal Government.
On June 14, 2012, a Federal High Court in Abuja presided by Justice Gabriel Kolawole,  ruled that Ndume must face trial on four counts of terrorism.

The court also dismissed a motion filed by his counsel, Chief Rickey Tarfa (SAN), seeking the dissolution of the charges against him. Ndume is accused of having links with  Boko Haram and also being involved in its activities.

When the trial resumed on Wednesday, a chief investigative officer in the SSS, Mr. James Inneh, told the court that Ndume gave Adoke’s phone number to Konduga.

According to Inneh, the alleged threat by Konduga  was to force the AGF to influence the outcome of the election tribunal sitting in Borno State in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Inneh said , “Konduga, in his confessional statement told the SSS that Ndume gave him the phone number of the AGF to threaten him (AGF) that they would make Borno State ungovernable if he did not ensure that the Borno State Election Petition Tribunal gave judgment in favour of the PDP.”

The agent admitted that Ndume gave some materials he obtained from Boko Haram to Vice-President Namadi Sambo and the Director-General of the SSS, while he served as a member of the Presidential Committee on Security Challenges in the North-East.

 Inneh said, “We investigated his claim by using our tradecraft. We did not have any audience with the VP but we investigated. His (Ndume) phones were sent to experts for analysis and after the phones were analysed, we did not tell him about our findings.

“He was not there when the analyses were  carried out. Some of the materials we took from his house were laptops, GSM phones, an international passport and other things.”

Inneh said he could not recall if Ndume had written a letter to the Inspector-General of Police to ask for protection.

Justice Kolawole, however,  adjourned the trial to November 1- 5 and December 11, 2012.
Ndume had asked the court to acquit him of the charges, arguing that the proof of evidence filed by the prosecution did not link him with the sect.

Ndume said his alleged relationship with Konduga, which formed the basis of the charges against him, came as a result of his membership of the presidential committee set up to address the security challenges in the North-East.

Ndume told the court that before his appointment as a member of the committee, he had no contact with Konduga or any other member of the sect.

However, in a counter-affidavit, the prosecution counsel, Mrs. Olufumilayo Fatunde, had asked the court to hold that Ndume’s trial must proceed summarily in line with Section 33(2) of the Federal High Court Act.
Ruling on the matter, the court maintained that, after studying the charges brought against the Senator, it found that he had a case to answer.

Kolawole said, “There is a link between the accused person and the offences listed in counts one to four.
“The mere presence of a probable defense to a criminal charge is not enough to quash the charge. The fact that an accused person denied the charges is not enough to quash the charges. There is a link between the accused person and some members of the Boko Haram.”

Ndume I pity you o. You see that Mrs Olufunmilayo Fatunde, she is fierce. You guys need to hear her speak. She's very articulate and brilliant so I trust she will deliver excellence in this matter. And as for Justice Kolawole, no nonsense judge. He is a role model for young Lawyers. So, Ndumeh, I pity you once again. I suggest you fire Rikky Taffa and just speak for yourself. Rikky Taffa was definitly confused the day he said an officer in the office of Attorney General can not sign charges on behalf of the Attorney general. such rubbish coming from a whole SAN Smh . May God help us in Nigeria. Our leaders have become our own enemies.

May God Almighty expose all the underground evil doers in Nigeria. Also, the best government can do for the masses is to ensure none of the convicts on terroist cases go scot free. Capital punishment should be used against them.

That's how they keep deceiving us with news headline in vain repetition ... Let justice be done this our so-called leaders knows what they are doing just because they want to maintain their own selfish desire they equally forget about the people that voted them in and come in return killing them through bombing cause they have dissagreement against themselves ... E.g making a vow that the country will not be in peace cause somebody else won the election instead of them ... Ah pity people judgement D̶̲̥̅̊ɑ̣̣̝̇̇ÿ̲̣̣̣̥ is near
