Nigeria: Boko Haram Threatens To Kill Judges If Al-Mustapha Is Hanged

The dreaded Boko Haram sect has on Monday threatened to kill judges and attack the Govt if they hang Major Hamzat Al Mustapha, the Chief Security Officer to the late General Sani Abacha, who was given a death sentence over the killing of Kudirat Abiola, wife of the late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola.

The group said once the death sentence is executed, it would extend its attack to judges and courts all over Nigeria.

In statement on Monday night, the group’s spokesman, Abul Qaqa, said: “Should the Nigerian government dare carry out the sentence announced earlier today on Major Hamzat Al-Mustapha (retd), the full-scale attacks will be expanded from security agencies and agents to the judiciary, from police stations to courts and so on. All chief justices, High Court judges and Appeal Court judges should take note. The blood of Al-Mustapha is the blood of the Nigerian masses.”

Al-Mustapha and Lateef Shofolahan was sentenced to death by hanging on Monday by a Lagos State High Court for their involvement in the conspiracy to kill and for killing Kudirat on June 4, 1996.

Also reacting to the death sentence, leader of the Niger Delta Volunteers Force, Mujahid Dokubo-Asari said Al-Mustapha must not be executed.

Dokubo-Asari insinuated that the decision to sentence Al-Mustapha to death at this period was meant to destabilise the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.

He said that during past administrations, those trying Al-Mustapha could not get a conviction, asking why it was now that Jonathan was in power that they were able to do so.

This is what Dokubo-Asari wrote on his wall on Facebook: “This is a day of shame for us all….shame on you Nigeria….al-Mustapha and other innocent men will not die….they will live. Insha Allah…the treachery and conspiracy against Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan will fail. When your man OBJ (former President Olusegun Obasanjo) was there for eight years, you did not get a conviction…Umar Musa Yar’Adua, you did not get a conviction….Shame on you…your conspiracy will fail.”

Meanwhile, chieftains of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, and emirs from across the North have converged in Kaduna on Tuesday for a secret meeting on how to confront the issue.

    This Asari Dokubo is been living with mental problem that many had point to it and his latest utterrances confirmed just that. You see a cold blooded killer like Al Mustapha getting justice that many of his victims never had instead of praising the judgment you hear this kind of utterrance simply tell why this phoney so called fragile nigeria is going nowhere but huge joke!

    The truth is that Nigeria does have ttreorisrs. even America has home grown ttreorisrs. What baffles me is that a Nigerian would want to kill himself and for what reason??? Now people have a reason to stare at us some more and stereotype..
