Best Blogger Tips
I think Nigeria needs help if the people that are supposed to be protecting lives and properties are the same ones aiding corruption and violence. It is just evidence that some people are not supposed to be in the position of power. Recent report revealed that
FORCE Disciplinary Committee (FDC), the panel set up  by the Police Service Commission (PSC), to conduct the trial of police commissioner Zakari Biu and five other for alleged negligence of
duty in the case concerning the escape of Kabiru Sokoto in January 2012, has heard further evidence from the re-arrested Madalla Christmas Day Bomber on how he escaped from captivity.
National Daily Security Source revealed that Sokoto stunned his interrogators by confessing that senior police officers masterminded his escape after they were allegedly induced financially by underground members of the Islamic fundamentalist sect, Boko Haram.
Sokoto's oral evidence made to interrogators at the State Security Service Headquarters in Abuja thus confirmed the initial suspicion by the presidency that there was police collaboration in Kabiru Sokoto's escape on January 15, 2011.
Panel of Investigation
The combined Security team constituted by the National Security Adviser (NSA), to investigate Biu and suspected accomplices in the Sokoto matter had recommended them for trial by the FDC based on its finding that they have a case to answer. The Police Commission headed by Parry Osayande then proceeded to set up a five man committee made up of five Assistant-Inspector Generals of Police to conduct the trial.

Commissioner for Polic Biu

Sokoto who source said has had five interrogation sessions since he was re-arrested claimed that he was purposeful released by the police in an arranged manner to make it look like an escape. “It was agreed that I will first of all go to Toto in Nasarawa State before moving over to Taraba from where I would than flee to neighboring Cameroun a day before I was captured.” Sokoto was quoted as saying, he disclosed that “After my initial arrest, I know I was in trouble and was desperate to secure my freedom, you know Boko Haram has many police officers among our membership, so my leaders contacted policemen who agreed to facilitate my escape on the understanding the he will be financially rewarded. So, it is a contract for the police to help me escape.”
Competent source was not certain about the names of all the officers who Sokoto said conspired to pave way for his escape but stated that Zakari Biu was directly fingered. It was further gathered that the SSS has marked the suspected officers some of which are already undergoing trails for further investigation.
Sokoto who is being grilled by intelligence officers who are under instruction not to use force to secured the facts from is said to have voluntarily made useful confessions on Boko Haram's operation and details of how the deal on his escape was final done.
Dastardly  acts
Sokoto has so far owned up to being involved in the bank raid in Kogi State and bloody attacks on police stations severally wounding and killing hapless victims. Sokoto agreed that he Habibu Bama, Suleiman Gambo aka Babangida, Muhammed and Muhtari Keifanchan were all involved in the conspiracy to Bomb worshippers at St. Theresa's Catholic Church, Madalla. There is manhunt to tract down the run-away suspects.
Kabiru Sokoto-Boko Haram
Sokoto expressed bitterness that Qaqa gave the initial information that led to his arrested. “I though he will be a real man, see , He started talking soon as they arrested him and told them how to get me” he was quoted as saying.
As National Daily earlier reported, Sokoto arrest was largely made possible by Abul Qaqa who was arrested earlier. Before his arrest, the SSS monitored his calls and text messages to Sokoto through the GPS. After his arrest he was said to have given more information that nailed Sokoto.
Giving details of how the Boko Haram Islamic sect operates, Sokoto said that, the leader, Imam Abubukar Shekan operates from Borno State, the headquarters of Boko Haram, he is the group's key strategist. Abu Mohammed is in charge of North Central.
Sokoto admitted that he is a member of the Sura Committee, the highest decision making body of the group and was involved in the planning of all operations of Boko Haram. He allegedly disclosed the source of Boko Haram's funds, sponsors and training ground.
Sokoto was said to have made more disclosures on the involvement of the police in Boko Haram's operation “we get our arms from police amoury, dealers and arms smugglers into the country as for the bombs, we were trained in North African countries and Afghanistan on how to manufacture bombs, we have large quality of bombs making materials.”
The security agents were said to have secured a vital evidence when they seized Sokoto's mobile phone. It  alleged revealed his phone contact with influential Nigerians suspicious text messages which were latter verified at the network providers office.
Counter claim
Sokoto was made to react on the claim allegedly made by Biu during his appearance before investigators and the Force Disciplinary Committee that it was just the efforts of the youths that enabled him to escape. “It is not correct, it was the police who contacted my Boko Haram members to come and secured mu released. It was not the youths alone, Boko Haram members were involved” he allegedly said, adding: “My group came with a get-away vehicle which took me away as was agreed with the police. I was in the vehicle that detonated the second bomb that exploded on the road, leaving a deep hole and one of my accomplices the drove the vehicle disappeared after my escape.”
This is contrary to Biu's alleged Defence at the Abuja FDC panel sitting at WU Bassey Military Barracks Abuja. Biu had heen quoted as saying: “We arrested Sokoto and after his arrest, we seized some vital material from him. The materials could have helped us prove his involvement in the Madalla bomb blast. We therefore decided to visit his house in Abaji. About five policemen under my command took him there, Sokoto, was in handcuff. But few poles to the Buttect House where Sokoto lives, we were confronted by some armed youths who pretended to be playing football on the street. They attacked us with gun and other dangerous weapon, while we were trying to engage them, Sotoko escaped into the crowd. We did not want to kill passers-by, that's why we did not open fire.”
However during interrogation, Sokoto was said to have insisted that the armed men among the Abuja youths were Boko Haram members who were stationed in the area to affect his release.
Biu awaits verdict
Meanwhile, there were indications that the Force Disciplinary Committee had concluded the trial of Zaraki Biu and five other alleged accomplices in the Sokoto escape saga. The committee according to competent source may have submitted its report to the chairman of the Police Service Commission, Parry Osayande, who may have also handed it over to the acting Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Dikko Abubakar.
The PSC was said to have taken into consideration the evidence of kabiru Sokoto who source said contradicted Biu's own statement.
“The FDC got the report and submitted it to the IGP for vetting before the IGP will give it back to PSC for necessary action. The FDC has the power to declare Biu and other accused persons guilty or not guilty.”
Now, Zakari Biu may be sleeping with one eye open awaiting the final verdict of the FDC. While Kabiru Sokoto will have to keep a date with the Court of law for alleged terrorism activities and attempt to escape from justice. Source: National daily.p
