Ex-Boko Haram spokesman, Konduga admitted in psychiatric hospital | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The Borno state police command claimed it has placed Ali Konduga, a former spokesman of the Boko Haram sect, under psychiatric investigation.

Victor Isuku, spokesman of the command, disclosed this in a statement, saying the move became necessary after the suspect exhibited abnormal behaviour last week.

Isuku said Konduga was arrested after a complaint by one Muhammadu Kala.

“On September 14, one Muhammadu Kala lodged a complaint at the GRA Police Station, Maiduguri, that Mallam Ali konduga of Gwange ward had trespassed into the premises of the house of Senator Muhammed Ndume,” he said.

“The DPO led a team of policemen to arrest the trespasser where he had gone to receive treatment for injuries he sustained as a result of a mob action.”

The police spokesman said investigation revealed that the suspect was of unsound mind.

“On investigation, he was behaving abnormally and was not responding rationally to questions put to him, a situation that suggests that he is of unsound mind,” he said.

“Hence, he was taken to the Federal Neuro Psychiatric Centre, Maidguri, to ascertain his sanity. Meanwhile the suspect is still under observation at the hospital.”

Isuku, who said the suspect was sentenced to three years imprisonment for complicity in Boko Haram activities, added that the police had commenced investigations into his case and would take necessary action once he is discharged.
