Boko Haram ThisDay Bomber Jailed For Life

Mustapha Umar, the Boko Haram member arrested in connection with the 26th April, 2012 bombing of SOJ Plaza in Kaduna state occupied by ThisDay, The Moment and The Sun Newspapers, was on Friday (today) found guilty of a one count charge of terrorism and sentenced for life.

The convicted terrorist was alleged to have driven a white Honda Academy car with improvised explosives devices into the premises of SOJ plaza with the intention to detonate them.
The incident claimed the lives of three persons and caused several degrees of injuries on others.

The convict had pleaded not guilty during his trial but the court placed heavy reliance on his recorded interview which he granted to investigators during interrogations where he claimed to be a member of the deadly Islamic fundamentalist group, Boko Haram, as well as the testimonies of ten witnesses comprising of police officers who participated in the investigation and were led in evidence during the trial.
