Court declines trial against Hon Ndakene, asks police to investigate allegations

The Upper Area Court, Karimo, Abuja has declined the commencement of trial in the direct criminal complaint filed by Mahmoud Babako against Hon. Ahmed Ndakene.

Recall that Babako, through his Lawyers, had on the 3rd day of June 2020, prayed the Court to allow him to prosecute the Legislator whom he alleged to have made false declarations.

Hon. Ndakene’s team of Lawyers argued that Babako and his Lawyers lacked the power to prosecute him as they are not prosecutors and have not secured any fiat to prosecute him.

The Court in its rulings agreed with the submission of Hon. Ndakene and ordered that the matter be investigated by the police. It further stated that the allegations are so weighty that it would be wrong to go ahead with prosecution without investigation.

The Court cautioned both parties to admonish their supporters to refrain from publishing false information about the proceedings of the court thereby misleading members of the public. The court warned that such acts may attract contempt proceedings.

However, the constituents have pledged their loyalty to Hon Ndakene saying, ”this will only make him stronger and more committed to his legislative duties, and that they are ready to support him in all his endeavours.”
