Boko Haram  Kingpin Kabiru Sokoto has  filed a N300 million suit against the government over alleged torture, and frustrating his efforts to get his conviction upturned at the Court of Appeal.

Sokoto further alleged that the Comptroller of Prisons and his men have made it impossible for him to have access to his lawyer, to enable him perfect his appeal process.

The High Court had on December 20, 2013, convicted and sentenced Sokoto to life imprisonment after he was found guilty of masterminding the Christmas day bomb blast that killed about 44 persons and wounded 75 others at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church at Madalla, Niger State, in 2011.
