Terrorism: Ndume opposes FG’s application for fresh evidence
Senator Aliyu Ndume, who is standing trial in a Federal High Court over alleged link with the Boko Haram sect yesterday urged the court to refuse application by the federal government to file additional proof of evidence.
Ndume was charged before the court by the office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) in 2012 over alleged links with the sect. At the resumed hearing, counsel to the AGF, E. Orji, prayed the court for leave to file additional proof of evidence and produce more witnesses against Ndume.
But counsel to Ndume, Mr. I. A. Kaigama opposed the motion on the grounds that will overreach the judgment of the court of appeal, which set aside the admissibility of electronically generated documents as evidence against the accused person. After listening to the counsels, Justice Gabriel Kolawole adjourned the suit to May 27 for ruling.
