Court Sentences Three Boko Haram Members To 75 Years In Prison


A Federal High Court in Lagos, yesterday, sentenced three alleged
Boko Haram members to 25 years imprisonment each, for acts of terrorism. The
convicts were among 17 accused, who were earlier charged before the court on
November 27, 2013.

The Lagos State Government had arraigned the accused on an
eight-count charge of acts of terrorism and possession of prohibited firearms
and ammunition.
It was gathered that although 17 of the accused had earlier
been arraigned, the A-G had discontinued proceedings against 13 of them, before
sentencing three to 25years imprisonment each. While the fourth person who was
charged with allegedly sponsoring the sect, was discharged and acquitted, on
the grounds that the prosecution failed to establish his guilt.
