Boko Haram: Judge withdraws from trial of suspects

October 3, 2017

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 defendants are facing trial at an Abuja Division of the court for the alleged murder of 5 foreigners who were kidnaped from a construction site in Kebbi State in 2011.

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.
