On Wednesday, the Federal Government informed a Federal High Court in Abuja that it had withdrawn its intention to pursue the alleged terrorism charge against Alhaji Bello Bodejo, the President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Kore. Prosecuting lawyer, Mrs. Aderonke Imana, disclosed this at the resumed hearing in the case on Wednesday. In a oral application, Mrs. Imana  said she was applying pursuant to Section 108 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA),  2015.

She said the request was further predicated on the power of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) under Section 174 of the Constitution. Mrs. Imana said: “Consequently, the Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation has instructed me to withdraw this charge against the defendant in the interest of justice. “That is our humble application my lord. Defence lawyer,  Ahmed Raji, SAN, did not oppose the prosecution’s application.

Raji thanked the AGF for his “magnanimous gesture,” adding: “We urge your lordship to discharge the accused person under the sections refers to by the prosecutor.” Ruling, Justice Inyang Ekwo ordered the discharge of  Bodejo. Justice Ekwo said: “The court is hereby moved to consider the application for the discharge of the defendant. “Consequently, an order is hereby made discharging the defendant. That is the order of this court.”

Abba Kyari granted bail, kidnap kingpin Wadume also from North released from prison. Sunday Igboho freed. And now , the leader of the murderous Fulani herdsmen released while a freedom fighter Nnamdi Kanu remains in custody. Thanks for bringing back our old National Anthem. NIGERIA WE HATE THEE
