Boko Haram kingpin sues the FG

  
The Federal High Court, Abuja has fixed February 4 to hear a fresh suit lodged against the FG by Kabiru Umar. a.k.a. Kabiru Sokoto, who has convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for masterminding the
Xmas day bomb blast that killed about 44 persons and wounded 75 others at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church at Madalla, Niger State, in 2011.

Sokoto who had earlier filed a N300m suit against the FG over alleged torture, yesterday, re-approached the high court, accusing the FG of frustrating his efforts to get his conviction upturned at the Court of Appeal, by making it impossible for him to have access to his lawyer.

The motion is seeking an order from the court, to allow Sokoto, who is currently detained at the Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison, Lagos, to have access to his legal team. He is equally seeking a declaration that the FG, by denying him access to his lawyers, have thus violated his right to fair hearing, right to counsel and access to justice.
