Boko Haram: Judge withdraws from trial of suspects
A Federal High Court Judge, John Tsoho, on Tuesday withdrew from the trial of 8 Boko Haram terror suspects charged to his court.
Tsoho made the decision following an application by six of the defendants asking that their case be transferred from his court.
The suspects are also accused of alleged culpability in the murder of seven other foreigners in Borno State.
The seven were abducted from another construction site in Bauchi State in February 2013, and taken to the Sambisa forest, as spelt out by the charge.
