Prosecute Goodluck Jonathan if he is found guilty– Senator Ndume

The Senate leader also said that he expects justice to be served, in the ongoing arms scandal trial, adding that nobody should be spared.

Goodluck Jonathan

Ndume said “I do not want to dabble in that, being one of the victims of the insurgency. My house was taken over by insurgents and my town was declared a caliphate of the insurgents. My Emir was killed while these people were laughing all the way to the banks with the money that was meant to buy arms and ammunition.

“It was for lack of ammunition that the Nigerian Armed Forces had to run away. As far as I am concerned, these people are living on blood money; the blood of so many innocent citizens of this country particularly from the North-East.”

He said “Over 10,000 people have lost their lives. At one time, you could see my people were slaughtered like chickens and the reason why this happened was because our Army was not equipped and not well kitted.

“Somebody made away with the money meant for the procurement of arms and ammunition.”

Ndume also said Jonathan should be made to face the law, if he is summoned at any time.

“Nobody is supposed to be above the law. If Jonathan is a culprit, he should face the law. If there is evidence that the former President should face the law, then, he should. After all, he is presumed innocent until proven guilty,” he said.

You will recall that Senator Ali Ndume was accused of being a sponsor of the terrorist group- Boko Haram.
