Senator Ndume told the Court that the government has not in anyway established a case against him or link him with the crime.
In a no case submission argued by his counsel, Rickey Tarfa, he insisted that the charges brought against him by the government since November 30, 2011 had not been proved beyond reasonable doubt as required by law.
Senator Ali Ndume admitted that he had contact with boko haram sect as a result of the fact that he was appointed into a presidential committee on security matters by the government to negotiate for peace with the terrorist group.
He maintained that the charges against him were unjust and unfair because he passed the report of his contact with the terrorist to the then, Vice President Namadi Sambo and the then Director General of the Department of State Services.
On the issue of communication between him and the boko haram sect via mobile phone, he averred that the forensic examination conducted did not reveal any offence committed.
He told the court that the charge of failure to disclose information on the workings of boko haram cannot be sustained against him because the prosecution did not link any evidence to that effect.
Mr Tarfa therefore prayed the court to strike out the charges against the senator on the grounds that no case has been established against him to warrant his going to defend himself.
However, the prosecution counsel Mrs Grace Okafor urged the court to compel Senator Ndume to open his defence in the charges on the grounds that the government witnesses have effectively linked him with the crime.
Counsel to the government also said that the charges against Senator Ndume had to do with the failure to disclose material information to the security agents on boko haram and rendering support to the terrorist group, adding that Senator Ndume in his statements tendered and admitted in court confirmed that he had enough information on the insurgents, which he refused to disclose to government.
Mrs Okafor said that the credible evidence adduced by the witnesses were corroborated by the defendant himself in the statements made to the security agents.
The trial judge, Justice Gabriel Kolawole, after taking arguments from the two parties adjourned ruling to July 4.
It would be recalled that the Nigerian government had arraigned Senator Ali Ndume for allegedly sponsoring the activities of boko haram.
