An FCT High Court in Maitama has fixed June 24 for a hearing of enforcement of fundamental rights suit filed by a former spokesman of Boko Haram, Ali Sanda Konduga.
Konduga had sued the Director-General, State Security Services (SSS) and the Attorney General and Minister of Justice of the Federation over allegation of unlawful detention.
Konduga, who was convicted and sentenced to three years imprisonment by a Chief Magistrate Court in Abuja for criminal intimidation in 2011, alleged that he was kept in detention for an extra three years before he was released in 2016.
The court was told yesterday by counsel for the DSS, O.J. Odu, that the legal department of the DSS was yet to get a copy of the court process said to have been served on the office of the DG of DSS since March 21. He said this could be as a result of an administrative bottleneck.
The presiding judge, Justice Samira Umar Bature thereafter adjourned the proceedings to June 24 for hearing.
