Ransome-Kuti acquitted of cowardly behaviour charge

-

- Advertisment -

A General Court Martial sitting in Abuja today has struck out the charge of cowardly behaviour preferred against a former Commander of the Multi-National Joint Task Force, Brig. Gen. Enitan Ransome-Kuti.

Ransome-Kuti’s trial will continue as he has two other charges of failure to perform military duties and miscellaneous offences relating to loss of the army’s armaments still pending against him.

The senior army officer is a son of the late pro-democracy and human rights activist, Doctor Beko Ransome-Kuti, and nephew to the late Afrobeat maestro, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

He was arraigned before the court along with others in June this year, for the charges which arose from the attack by Boko Haram terrorists on the Headquarters of the MNJTF, then in Baga, Borno State, on January, 2015.
