Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja has ordered the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and the Nigerian Army to produce in court, a medical ‎doctor, Mohammed Mari Abba, who was accused of link with Boko Haram.

In her ruling on a suit filed by Abba, through‎ his counsel, Ocholi Okutepa, to challenge his continuous detention, ordered the Army to in the alternative charge him to court.

Abba, a consultant with World Health Organization (WHO), was arrested in Yobe State in 2012 and has remained in detention, according to Okutepa.

“The first thing I wish to raise in this case is on the case of the applicant (Abba). This applicant who is suing in person is “missing”‎.

“The applicant, according to his wife, who deposed to the affidavit in support of the application, is being kept by the respondents in an undisclosed place.

“However curiously, I have come across a process in the file dated 10/06/16 on behalf of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th respondents, which claimed that the applicant has been charged in suit number FHC/ABJ/CR/138/2015.

“If this is correct, then it will be safe to assume the 1st, 2n‎d, 3rd and 5th respondents have an idea where the applicant may be. So as not to embark on exercise in futility, I hereby order the 1st, 2n‎d, 3rd and 5th respondents to produce the applicant before the court within 60 days‎ or charge him to court.

 “On the alternative, they should show cause, why I should not order them to release the applicant unconditionally,” Nyako said.
