FG arraigns two Nigerians suspected to be members of Al-Qaeda

The Federal Government has arraigned two Al-Qaeda suspects before a high court sitting in Abuja for allegedly aiding and abating terrorist activities in the country.

The two accused persons Olaniyi Lawal and Lukman Babatunde both pleaded not guilty to the six counts and were later remanded in prison custody pending their next appearance in court.

The first accused person Mr Lawal, 31, is said to have received monies in Saudi Riyals and in US Dollars equivalent to N1 million from a terrorist organisation known as Al-Qaeda in May 2011 to recruit and transport new members to Yemen for combat training in terrorism.

Mr Lawal alongside the second accused Mr Babatunde, 30, allegedly convened a meeting in June 2011 to further the objective of the proscribed organisation.

Also in the charge sheet, the second accused person was said to have provided facilities and logistics for the meeting.

The offence committed by the duo as stated in the charge is punishable under the terrorism and prevention act 2011.

The trial judge adjourned the case to October 2 and 3.

    Yoruba men as Boko Haram?  This govt is not serious.  They know the real BK but decided to arrest yahoo-yahoo boys and frame them to Boko Haram

    • Primesamitos

       Yes, Yoruba men as BH, if the biz brings money to their wallet.

      Hmmm I can’t just stop laughing. Its unfortunate the way things have turned in the country. Unemployment and poverty could anyone into such nefarious acts irrespective of tribe oe ethnic background. Truth remains that FG knows the real BH, so they go forward and deal with them, rather than harass innocent citizens trying to erk a living.

    • AngryNigerian

      That tells you these people are not BH. BH is not about money, but ideology. Clearly these boys just wants to get paid, although they are going about it the wrong way.

    What else do we need to here again? Kabiru Sokoto mentioned all the BIG MEN behind boko haram but nothing was done. Instead, FG hide all his (Kabiru Sokoto) confession under the carpet  while the poor masses and security agents die in thousand everyday. Government, pls, stop fooling us.

  • Hisgrace3ng

    When are we going to put a permanent end to Boko haram spread? Our govt. should please stop sacrificing innicent souls. Something should be done fast.

  • den

    My Allah SWT intervene in the problems confronting this great nation. If we are mourning on one, another one will be announced again. where are we going Nigerians and our leaders. let there be justices, because injustice is one of our major problem in this country. The creator of the universe had said, he had made Injustice prohibited on Himself, and He enjoin us all to be just to all mankind including the animals as well.  Abdul Quadri Abd. Fatai.
