Senator Ndume Spotted With Former President, Jonathan Days After His Release From Kuje Prison

Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume was found in a meeting with former president, Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja a few days after his release from a correctional center.

The meeting was attended by former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, who posted photos of the event on his social media page.

Also in the photo posted by Jonathan is Bala Ngilari, the former governor of Adamawa State.

Ndume spent a few days in Kuje prison after Justice Okon Abang ordered the arrest of Borno-born senator for failing to present Abdulrasheed Maina, a former pensioner.

Ndume, who is the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Armed Forces, stand as a guarantor for Maina during his trial.

Senator Ndume's arrest, however, has sparked controversy among northern groups who say his arrest is unfair.

One of the groups, the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), condemned what it described as the senator's illegal detention because he refused to present Maina.
