According to reports, the Borno State Police Command said on Monday that it had placed a former spokesman of the Boko Haram sect, Ali Konduga, under psychiatric investigation.

This, the police said, followed Konduga’s display of abnormal behaviour since his arrest last week.

Victor Isuku, the spokesman of the command, said this in a statement he issued in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

Isuku said Konduga was arrested after a complaint by one Muhammadu Kala.

He said: “On September 14, one Muhammadu Kala lodged a complaint at the GRA Police Station, Maiduguri, that Mallam Ali Konduga of Gwange ward had trespassed into the premises of the house of Senator Muhammed Ali Ndume.

“The DPO led a team of policemen to arrest the trespasser where he had gone to receive treatment for injuries he sustained as a result of a mob action.”

The police spokesman said investigation, however, revealed that the suspect was of unsound mind.

Isuku added in the statement: “On investigation, he was behaving abnormally and was not responding rationally to questions put to him, a situation that suggests that he is of unsound mind.

“Hence, he was taken to the Federal Neuro Psychiatric Centre, Maidguri, to ascertain his sanity.

“Meanwhile the suspect is still under observation at the hospital.”

Isuku, who said the suspect was sentenced to three years imprisonment for complicity in Boko Haram activities, added that the police had commenced investigations into his case and would take necessary action once discharged.

He added: “It is note worthy that in line with our constitutional mandate which includes protection of lives and properties, any complaint received must be properly investigated to determine culpability or otherwise.

“In this instance, a case of trespass was reported and in pursuance of our mandate, we are bound to investigate it regardless of the status of the complainant.”
