Exposed! Senator Ordered Boko Haram to Threaten Attorney-General

The State Security Service on Wednesday told an Abuja Federal High Court that an embattled senator standing trial over his alleged involvement with the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, Senator Aliyu Ndume ordered a spokesman of the sect, Ali Kodunga to call and threaten the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke (SAN).

The SSS said it made the shocking discovery when Senator Ndume’s mobile telephone call logs were analysed during investigations.

While the Senator is facing terrorism charges brought against him by the Federal Government, Konduga has since been convicted on two counts of criminal breach of public trust and intimidation through anonymous communication. He is currently serving a three-year prison term.

When the trial resumed on Wednesday, a chief investigative officer in the SSS, Mr. James Inneh, also revealed that Senator Ndume gave Adoke’s phone number to Konduga.

According to Mr Inneh, the alleged threat by Konduga was to force the AGF to influence the outcome of the election tribunal sitting in Borno State in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Mr Inneh said, “Konduga, in his confessional statement told the SSS that Ndume gave him the phone number of the AGF to threaten him (AGF) that they would make Borno State ungovernable if he did not ensure that the Borno State Election Petition Tribunal gave judgment in favour of the PDP.”

“We investigated his claim by using our tradecraft. We did not have any audience with the VP but we investigated. His (Ndume) phones were sent to experts for analysis and after the phones were analysed, we did not tell him about our findings.

“He was not there when the analyses were carried out. Some of the materials we took from his house were laptops, GSM phones, an international passport and other things,” the SSS official added.

Justice Kolawole adjourned the trial to November 1- 5 and December 11, 2012.

It would be recalled that Sentaor Ndume had asked the court to acquit him of the charges, arguing that the proof of evidence filed by the prosecution did not link him with the sect.
