Sheriff sues Borno State Government over links to Boko Haram.

Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has sued the Borno state government after being recently accused of having knowledge about Boko Haram.

Speaking in Abuja on Monday, Deputy National Chairman for his PDP faction, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh who represented him said Sheriff has sued the Borno State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, ‎Barrister Kaka Shehu Lawan‎.

He said in Suit No. FCT/HC/CU/2494/2016, that Barrister Lawan and three other persons are the defendants.

‎He said, “It is on record that when Sheriff was Governor of Borno State, he suppressed and completely routed the Boko Haram like Buhari did in 1993.

“‎Boko Haram Killed 5 members of his family in the process of his fight against them.

“But when the current Governor of Borno State, Shetima took over office Boko Haram became emboldened, virulent and malignant.

“Note also that Shetima became Governor because Boko Haram killed the man who was to be Governor. “His death paved way for the emergence of Shetima who willingly and deliberately encouraged Boko Haram,” Ojugboh said.
