BREAKING: Federal High Court In Abuja Strikes Out Case Against 29-Year-Old Pharmacist, Solomon Akuma Arrested for Twitter Banter Against Buhari

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has struck a case filed against a 29-year-old pharmacist, Solomon Akuma, who tweeted that he would “pay a Russian sniper to kill Buhari and his former Chief of Staff, the late Abba Kyari".

The trial judge, Folashade Giwa- Ogunbanjo while ruling on the matter on Monday struck out the case on the ground that it was defective.

The judge said there was no valid charge before the court and that the matter was not diligently prosecuted.

She said the case file would be returned to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in the office of Attorney General of Federation for further action.

The judge added that the judgement does not give protection to the defendant from future investigation.

The defence counsel, Emmanuel Ukaegbu prayed the court to discharge the defendant who was in a correctional centre.
