27-Year-Old Boko Haram Suspect To Remain In Prison
Suspected member of Boko Haram terrorist group, Adamu Anas Mohammed is not going home any time soon.
This is because the Lokoja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Friday ordered that the 27-year-old suspect be remanded in prison for his alleged membership.
Mohammed was arrested by security agents on April 6 at Obajana in Kogi, following intelligence report.
According to the prosecutor, Muhammed is a member of Boko Haram sect from Jimeta in Adamawa State and had been severally arrested for alleged involvement in terrorist activities.
Abaji further alleged that the accused recently moved to Obajana for undisclosed undercover terrorist mission being investigated by security operatives.
He said the offence contravened Section 16 of the Terrorist (Prevention) (Amendment) Act, 2013.
Mohammed, who denied the allegation, said he used to worship with some members of the sect at NEPA Mosque in Jimeta, Yola.
He admitted that he was arrested and remanded in prison for eight months in Adamawa over alleged membership of the sect but was later released.
Chief Magistrate Alhassan Husaini then ordered that the accused be remanded in Koton-Karfe Prison pending further investigation into the alleged offence.
Husaini adjourned the case until May 31.
