A spokesman for terrorist sect, Boko Haram has been arrested at the home of Senate Leader, Ali Ndume in Maiduguri, Borno State.

Ali Sanda Umar Konduga was said to have been arrested on Wednesday, September 14, after sneaking into Ndume’s home, according to Vanguard.

Konduga was reportedly released from prison last week after serving a three year sentence.

The suspect had earlier accused Ndume of being a Boko Haram sponsor leading to the senator being charged to court.

According to one of Ndume’s relatives, Konduga “kept on coming to the Senator’s house purposely to apologize to the immediate family for indicting Ndume, who was charged for providing Konduga with politicians’ phone numbers and not disclosing information to authorities under Nigeria’s Terrorism Prevention Act.”

“When the Maigadi (Gate man) accosted Konduga that the senator was not in the house, requested to see Justice Aisha Ndume, one of the senator’s wife, but was asked to come back the following day,” a source told Vanguard.

“As luck will have it, Konduga revisited the house on Wednesday at exactly 4pm, where he was identified by some Ndume’s close associates, who accompanied the senator to the Federal High Court, Abuja then.

“Policemen in charge of G.R.A police station were alerted and swooped into action leading to the re-arrest of Konduga. He is now in police custody, while Senator Ndume has been informed,” the source added.
