Abuja Court Strikes Out Terrorism Charges Against Amigo Supermarket Boss


An Abuja court on Wednesday struck out a case of illegal arms importation filed against the co-owner of Amigo Supermarket, Mustapha Fawaz and three other Lebanese. The matter is becoming very complicated as is usually the case whenever Nigerian security agencies are prosecuting big men.
 
The men are also seeking an apology for their detention and asking for N50billion as damages...
Their bail application will be heard on June 21 in the fresh suit filed by the Lebanese at a Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking their release from detention.
.
However, Magistrate Muyiwa Oyeyipo of the Chief Magistrate Court in Karu, an Abuja suburb, stuck out the terrorism charges suit against them following an application by the prosecutor, Cliff Osagie.

Mustapha Fawaz, Talal Roda, Abdulla Tahini, and Kossay Nourdin were charged for terrorism and alleged importation of firearms. 
 
At the resumed trial, the prosecutor, in his application to withdraw the charges, told the court that they have just discovered that the offences for which the three men were charged before the court are outside the jurisdiction of the court.

As usual, the SSS is now expected to start the process of filling fresh charges against the men before a High Court.
