Ter­ror­ism: Ndume op­poses FG’s ap­pli­ca­tion for fresh ev­i­dence

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By John Chuks Azu

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.
