Kabiru Sokoto Biography
Kabiru Umar Abubakar Dikko, also known as Kabiru Sokoto, is a Nigerian terrorist and member of the Boko Haram group. Born in northern Nigeria, he is responsible for the bombing of the St. Theresa Roman Catholic Church in Mandalla Niger state.
He did the act on Christmas Day 2011 in Madalla, Niger State, which resulted in the deaths of about 50 worshippers in the church. After being arrested, he fled custody and was rearrested a month later.
In 2013, he was sentenced to life in prison. The judge noted that Sokoto did not express remorse for his actions during the trial. 
HURIWA on Kabiru Sokoto Case
The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to clarify if Kabiru Sokoto, a convicted Boko Haram terrorist responsible for the killing of over 50 worshippers at the Mandalla Catholic Church near Abuja, has been released.
In 2015, Sokoto was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 2011 bombing of the St. Theresa Catholic Church in Mandalla, Niger State, which resulted in 44 deaths and 75 injuries.
HURIWA has expressed concern over reports on social media that Sokoto may have been released as part of a deal to secure the release of missing Chibok schoolgirls.
The rights group also criticized the government for not aggressively prosecuting terror suspects and for making secret deals with armed terrorists, which it claims is unconstitutional and undemocratic.
HURIWA also questioned why political prisoners like Nnamdi Kanu are still in detention while a convicted terrorist may have been released.

Maureen Said, If the rumor is confirmed to be true, then this government is playing with fire. Imagine releasing hardened criminals, this is dangerous. It is indeed unconstitutional to negotiate with these criminals as it puts us in bad light and at a disadvantage.
If these criminals who actually killed thousands of innocent people were let off the hook what is the justification in incarcerating Nnamdi Kanu? Double standard of justice indeed.
Someone Said, they worked for him, and it is the reason why the war in NE seems to be cooling down except for some Kanuri radicals. I can now categorically state that an average southern Nigerian is a coward.
Igbos and people from the SS should hide our faces in shame. We will rather maintain our daily bread (which has been reduced by half by Buhari) rather than stand and fight for tomorrow.
Another Person Said, they said Buhari hates corruption and is fighting Insurgency, yet the government have not arraigned anybody for terrorism since he came onboard. while the few that were arrested under GEJ are being granted amnesty.
Seyiadesina Said, if this is true then Nigerians must have a re-think of the government they voted inn, may God help us out! [wpdiscuz-feedback id=”wqyyersppl” question=”Please leave a feedback on this” opened=”0″]Drop your own comment below.[/wpdiscuz-feedback]
