Senator Ndume Names Vice President Namadi Sambo As Boko Haram Sponsor



The ongoing trial of the sitting lawmaker representing Borno South Senatorial District, Mohammed Ali Ndume, over his alleged romance with the Jamaatu Ahlil Sunna Lidawati wal Jihad, otherwise known as Boko Haram terrorist sect, may have assumed a dangerous dimension, considering that the accused person has sworn before a Federal High Court in Abuja that the Vice President, Namadi Sambo, was fully aware of his relationship with the sect.

While challenging the legal competence of the 4-count criminal charge that was entered against him by the Federal Government, Ndume, through a 24-paragraph affidavit he attached in support of his motion seeking to quash the charge, admitted having telephone exchanges with members of the Jammatul Sunnah Walid Jihad though denied furnishing them with classified information that has aided their terrorist operations in the country.

The embattled lawmaker who said the first telephone exchange between him and the sect was on October 4, 2011, insisted that the reason the sect approached him was as a result of his being a member of the Presidential Committee that was inaugurated on August 2, 2011, with a view to addressing the security challenges in the North Eastern part of the nation.

It would be recalled that Ndume was arrested by the States Security Services, SSS, on November 21, after a self-confessed spokesman of the sect, Ali Sanda Umar Konduga, fingered him as one of the major sponsors of the sect.
He was docked before the high court on December 12, 2011, and subsequently released on bail after he had spent 26-days in detention.

    Those that God has decided to destroy, He first make stupid. I think its time for the army to come back so that we can wash away these sycophants and start a new democracy afresh.
    1. we asked for good governance, they enriched themselves and removed fuel subsidy and brought hardship to the masses,
    2. They promised us good electricity supply and brought generator, candle light, and reduced the Megawatts of electricity the country is using,
    3. we asked for police reform and they changed the currupt criminals their uniforms.
    4. Now they want to remove the only machinary we have to show our grieviances by destroying the NLC.
    I think its time for a change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    it is only God that will come to our rescue when time come’s and he will destroy those who has turn the country into an unsafer place for His children but for the Northerners no one among the top officials is exempted in the sponsors of the so called Boko Haram and this was the reason why CBN president want Islamic banking to be established in our country so that their will be sponsoring the sect through that. The best thing to is just for GEJ to divide this country so that the Northerners will be killing themselves instead of the innocent Nigerians but the young man is acting in silent may be he is waiting for the Bomb to land on his head before he will know what to do but by then it will be too late for him nonsense.

    Many of the writers here reacted wrongly, is it to show their level of iliteracy?. Or what. From what i personaly read, ndume is denying the alegation against in the court. And there is no place that he mentioned sambo as a sponsor of boko harm. The person who posted this information with such an alarming headline is nothing but a traitor. He should be punished for trying 2 stir up stife in the minds of the people. And 2 u, be careful of what u hear.
