Senator Accused Of Sponsoring Boko Haram, Ali Ndume Is Nigeria’s Senate Majority Leader

The Senate on Thursday elected Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume as the Majority Leader of the Senate, in defiance of the party’s anointed candidate, Ahmed Lawan.
Senate President Bukola Saraki announced Mr. Ndume and Bala Ibn Na’Allah as Senate Leader and Deputy Senate Leader respectively.
Interestingly in 2011, this same Senator Ndume was accused of sponsoring the Boko Haram sect.
Back then the Federal Government had alleged that Ndume representing Borno South senatorial district, furnished the sect with information that aided their terrorist operations in Nigeria.

He was among other things alleged to have furnished them with the telephone numbers of top government officials and Judges, among which included the phone number of the AGF himself.

The sect was said to have called some of those whose numbers were given to them and threatened to visit them with‘fire and brimstone’.

The government had earlier tendered a proof of evidence that indicated that Ndume made contacts with the Boko Haram sect 73 times.

Security agents in November 2011 arrested Ndume.
