On Friday, the Federal Government brought charges against Bello Bodejo, the detained leader of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, at a Federal High Court in Abuja, accusing him of terrorism in a three-count charge.

Bodejo, apprehended on January 23 in Nasarawa State, has been held by the Defence Intelligence Agency.

The allegations stem from purportedly organizing an armed militia, which the government contends threatens national unity, contravening the Nigerian constitution.

Seeking to detain Bodejo for 15 days pending investigation and court proceedings, the Attorney-General’s Office filed a motion ex-parte.

According to a report by Punch, the motion, dated February 5 and presented by the Director of Public Prosecution, cites Bodejo’s actions as potential violations of the Terrorism (Prevention and Prohibition) Act of 2022.

In response to the Federal High Court’s ultimatum to file charges within seven days, the prosecution filed charges on March 12, serving Bodejo accordingly.

Following arguments presented by Bodejo’s counsel on March 13, the case awaited the judge’s ruling, which was delivered on Friday.

The judge noted the prosecution’s submission of an affidavit on March 15, confirming the filing of charges and service on the defendant after the case was adjourned.
