The Federal Government has brought charges against a suspected Boko Haram member, Abdulmannan Obadiki being held in connection with the 2012 attack on the Deeper Life Church, Lokoja, Kogi State. About 20 worshippers were shot dead a mid-night attack, when gunmen stormed the church where the people were holding a night vigil in August last year.
Obadiki is charged with offences of engaging in terrorism activities and illegal possession of firearm, in a six-count charge filed against him by the office of the Attorney General of the Federation.
He is alleged to have committed the offences in collaboration with some others, now at large.
Obadiki, light in complexion and dressed in native attire, was taken before Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court, Abuja yesterday by security operatives.
His planned arraignment was aborted owing to his inability to secure the service of a lawyer.
Justice Kolawole adjourned to December 12 for his arraignment.
