Boko Haram: Senator Ndume Arraigned On Terrorism Charges

Mohammed Ali Ndume
By SaharaReporters, New York

The Nigerian senator detained in connection with links to islamic militant group Boko Haram appeared at an Abuja Magistrate court today to face terrorism charges.

The Peoples Democratic Party Senator, Mohammed Ali Ndume from Borno earlier confessed to knowing the spokesperson of the dreaded Boko Haram sect operating in the northeastern parts of Nigeria.

Senator Ndume represents Borno South Senatorial District at the Nigerian senate.

The Boko Haram spokesperson, Ali Sanda Umar Konduga, aka, "Usman Al-Zawahiri" was arrested and paraded in public yesterday by the Nigerian secret police, State Security Services (SSS).
He spoke openly about Senator Ndume's support in helping the group frame threat messages to various politicians and Nigerian officials via text messages.

The embattled senator was arraigned alongside the self-confessed spokesperson of the Boko Haram sect, Ali Sanda Umar Konduga (A.K.A) Usman Al-Zawahiri at magistrate court Abuja.

 The court was still in session as at the time of filing this report, but state prosecutors said they will oppose any bail application for the senator.

What about Bonu Sheriff?

Sherriff should be arrested and charged to court with these two men. Where is he and why is he not in court?

HE USED HIS BLOATED SALARY AND ALLOWANCES TO KILL.

As one of the highest earning senators on the face of the earth,his salaries and allownces are enough to sponsor,aid and nuture a terrorist group that kills the very people he is supposed to represent.
Everthing is indeed possible in our country, we need to do some soul searching,what manner of people we vote in to act on our behalf,who can be blamed for always suspecting the ruling class?
He must face the full weight of the law,please the security agencies have to expose those politicians calling for his release because they are the real enemies of Nigeria.

Peoples Democratic Party Senator?

PDP will always represent evil no matter what their claims are. The party and its scumbags fornicate with the devil and in the end Nigerians are the ones that suffer most.
Again, where are those mindless people that are quick to blame Buhari for the post-election violence? I believe that PDP has been responsible for all the violence and including the bombings that has taken so many innocent lives in Nigeria. They set the nation on fire and blame their political opponents. This has been the ill luck and forte of how PDP play politics in Nigeria.

Jamaa huta lafia.

Jamaa huta lafia.

sultanofsokoto, I thought you

sultanofsokoto,
I thought you were a kind gentleman from the Najeriya. Why are you prescribing such harsh punishment for a Mohammedan fighting for his freedom of religion? Temper justice with mercy, comrade. I am a Biafran, I don't want you to treat my neighbor from the Islamic Republic of Arewa in such an inhumane manner.

senator ndume

It's a̶̲̥̅̊ clear case that a̶̲̥̅̊ serving senator doesn't want progress for this country and I don't it wise if he judgement would not be passed accordingly. If peradventure people like this should ever walk freely on the streets of our society again, I bet we are dragging our nation into a̶̲̥̅̊ state of anomie

Nigeria security agencies always screw up their....

Nigeria security agencies always screw up their investigations. They rush to the press without concluding their investigations thereby giving the accused the opportunity to mess up their work. Instead of gathering hard evidence against a suspect using someone already apprehended, Mrs Marylin Ogah of SSS would go and prematurely address the press while investigations are still ongoing.
Bug his line( if you people have what it takes)by obtaining the leave of court if necessary. Get the suspect to make calls to him.Put him under surveillance 24/7. Record all conversations. Video all encounters. Get the BH guy to agree with the fact that he would have his sentence ligthened if he cooperates with the investigations. CIA, FBI, e.t.c do that.

whap about senator iyiola

Ali and the Angel. Animal in human skin.

I wonder

Is this not the same person who as a member of the house of reps was always calliong for a state of emergency in Plateau state? Na wa o...

this is just the beginning of

this is just the beginning of the revelation, every Nigerian know that there are prominent Politicians sponsoring the dastard activities of the sect, those that are pointing accusing fingers on Gen. Buhari will begin to know that PDP members are behind all the woes and agony that are bedeviled the country

Buhari & CPC are vindicated!!!

Thank God with what is unfolding. The Nigerian masses will now see beyond religious sentiment and vote for Buhari come 2015. Boko Haram like many other groups in Nigeria are sponsors by politicians most of whom are PDP leaders.

hope they can substantiate this claims

substantiate this claim and indeed hope the sss have more proof to prosecute this case.my concern his,if it's the testimony of this self confessed member of this illegal organization versus nigerian senator,this acquisition might not carry enough weight in court.

Breaking news, Nigerian Senate to back Senator Ndume

We can now see that the Nigerian Senate is made up of mostly idiots and mass murderers with their collective determination to back one of the major sponsors and backers of Boko Haram, Senator Ndume. So this is what Nigerian oil money is used for. To maintain a Senate that encourages terrorism and kill it's people. Nigerians rise and let us occupy the Senate and drive away those idiots who call themselves Senators.

PDP

PDP!!! Poison Destroying People!!! This is a man that was cleared, ecected and presented by PDP as their best candidate for the election. Just see my people

Where are the Jonathan Haters?

Where is the credit to the Nigerian intelligent agencies for fishing this scum out?

Where are the haters of President?

The next shoe to fall will be General Boko Haram and Pastor Boko Haram.

Tip from the Holy Book

"He who live by the sword, must die by the sword" You dont need a human judge for this and no appeal. End of tori

Just the beginning

This is the man that said that subsidy removal is unconstitutional and anti-people. But this undesirable element was secretly sponsoring a criminal gang that have wasted a lot of lives.
President Jonathan, call him weak, dumb or stupid, but you can't take away his calmness in the mist of pressure. I think he is getting somewhere, those who abandoned Nigeria on his head and sit aside watching and calling him weak, dumb, stupid etc will now realize that it takes careful planning to achieve lasting result. The degree of Jonathan's success can only be determined by the co operation and contribution of Nigerians. Those who think that Jonathan is master of all circumstance are ignorant, dumb and stupid.

Treason, not terrorism!

From the senator's confession the first thing that should happen is to impeach him; and this process needs no further collection of evidence for the confession seals his fate. Such a person has no business being in the senate. Unfortunately he is being arraigned on a lesser charge of terrorism. The correct charge should have read, 'treason'. Should a magistrate court be the competent court here? If not, then the prosecution is wasting time.

REVOLUTION

The only thing to do if military comes back is only to
1) Kill all the thiefs-Babangida,Abubaka Abdulsalam,Atiku,Obasanjo, Aneni and political thugs like Buhari etc
Army should not go into politics but clean up the mess including all the so called Islamic leadership and the enemies of peace in Nigeria

An eye for an eye judgment

An eye for an eye judgment not pdp judgment pls

scape goat

He is just a scape goat out of all, ther are mor politicians in d PDP who know the boko haram very well.

You are very funny

That would be very easy my friend. However, the rule of law must take its course. The defendants must be given a fair trial and allowed to defend their asserted actions.

Its a setup by Ali sheriff

Its a setup by Ali sheriff and obasanjo

Ndume's arrest

Is't possible?if so then no doubt that PDP is the co-financer.since obj said it that power strugle is a Do or DIE affair.as far as they can't get the governorship in Borno let everyone go to hell.

Re: Drama
