Nov 30, 2013 – Nigerian Senator Yariman Bakura Arrested For Armed Robbery In Zamfara

The police in Zamfara on Friday have docked Senator Yariman Bakura and 29 others at a Zamfara High Court over alleged conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Counsel to the police, Mr Oloye Torugbene, sought the leave of the court, pursuant to the Criminal Procedure, to prosecute the case.

He told the court that all relevant documents, including affidavits, exhibits, names and addresses of accused persons, as well as written statements of witnesses and the accused persons, had been submitted to the court.

He therefore urged the court to proffer a criminal charge based on the evidence provided for prosecution.

He said already, the accused persons who had been served arraignment notice, were released through police administrative bail and pleaded with the court to fix a date for hearing.

In her ruling on the application, the judge, who is also the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Kulu Aliyu, said the court was competent to handle the case.

Aliyu urged the prosecutor to serve the accused persons with all the relevant documents and fixed 13 January 2014 for hearing.

Rep. Ibrahim Shehu, representing Gusau/Tsafe constituency, had in June alleged that some people mobilised some thugs to kill him.

He alleged that during the incident, the attackers removed large sum of money from his vehicle.

He, however, reported the case to the Inspector-General of Police, who set up an investigation that led to the court case.
