POLITICS: Alleged Boko Haram Sponsor ALI NDUME Emerges Majority Senate Leader

The Nigerian Senate on Thursday ratified the candidates put forward by the All progressives Congress, APC, North-West and North-East zonal caucuses for the positions of Senate Majority Leader and Deputy Majority Leader. While Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume from Borno State got approved for the Majority Leader, Senator Bala Na’Allah from Kebbi central was ratified as Deputy Majority leader, Olusola Adeyeye as Chief Whip and Francis Makhana as deputy.

It could be recalled that in 2012, an official of the State Security Service, Mr. Abdulfaruk Dauda, told a Federal High Court in Abuja that former spokesman for Boko Haram, Kudunga Abdul, named Senator Ali Ndume as a financier of the group. Abdul was sentenced to three years in prison after he confessed to being the spokesman for the group.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ndume was arraigned on December 12, 2011 on four counts of having links with Boko Haram. He had refuted the allegation on the grounds that the prosecution did not establish evidence linking him with the terror group. Ndume, a Senator from Borno, said he only made contact with the group while serving as a member of the Presidential Committee set up to help quell the hostilities in the North-East. He said the transactions with some select members of the group were lawful and targeted at resolving the security challenges.
