Terrorism Charges: Ndume Asks Court To Stay Proceedings

The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division has fixed October 2nd, 2013 for the adoption of addresses in the appeal brought before it by Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume asking it to stay proceedings in his trial for terrorism charges.

The trial is being conducted by the federal government at the Federal High Court in Abuja following the indictment of the senator on alleged involvement of sponsorship of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.

The senator had approached the court of appeal to overturn the ruling of the Federal High Court Judge, Justice Gabriel Kolawole, who admitted as evidence against the senator alleged call logs from GSM providers, which indicated that the lawmaker had telephone conversation with one of the Boko Haram commanders, Ali Konduga.

He asked the appellate court to invalidate the admitted evidence on the ground that the judge erred in law when he admitted non admissible documents, which the senator described as radical and fundamental against him.

However, his motion for stay of proceedings could not be entertained by the Justice Dauda Yahaya-led three man panel following the sudden objection to the motion brought by the federal government to the court by its counsel Mr. Thompson Olatigbe

The court ordered both parties to file their written addresses and exchange same between now and October 2, 2013 when they will be formally adopted.

Justice Kolawole had on December 11 and 14, 2012 admitted in evidence certain, DVDs containing call-data records, including findings based on investigations carried out by a Special Investigation Panel (SIP), of the State Security Service (SSS).

Its only in Nigeria that you have a mountain of evidence to prosecute an egregious villain and we continue to play to the gallery. what better evidence do you need?. How I wish it was for October 1st,so you guys can celebrate this gross miscarriage of justice and as usual,a humongous failure of the government of the day. I thought they were ghosts!!
