See The Face Of Chibok Girls' Abductor As High Court Sentences Him To 15 Years In Prison

Haruna Yahaya

A boko haram terrorist whose left arm and left leg are crippled has been convicted and sentenced to prison by a federal high court for participating in the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State.

The Federal High Court sitting in Wawa Cantonment, Kainji, Niger State, yesterday sentenced 35-year old Haruna Yahaya for terrorism offences.

The convict, whose left arm and left leg are crippled, was convicted for being a member of the proscribed Boko Haram terrorist group and participating in the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, in 2014.

He was said to have participated in the group’s attacks in Chibok, Chibok Local Government Area and Gabsuri town in the Damboa Local Government.

Yahaya had pleaded guilty to the two counts preferred against him by the Federal Government but pleaded for mercy, saying he was forcefully conscripted into the terrorist group.

But the judge who sat in one of the four special courts established by the Federal High Court to speed up the trial of over 1,000 suspects said the court was “not fooled” by Yahaya’s story.

He noted the convict was “using the misfortune of his handicap to draw sympathy.”

The judge, therefore, ruled that the 15 years sentence passed on the convict who had been in detention since 2015 would commence counting from Monday.
