FG to sack security chiefs over collusion with Boko Haram

Vanguard "The federal government is likely to sack some security chiefs over their collusion with Boko Haram, Saturday Vanguard has learnt.

It was also gathered that the Presidency has commenced investigation into how and when a ‘confirmed and hardened’ adherent of Boko Haram, Mr. Ali Tishau, who was in police detention on allegations of terrorism, was released to the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) on the request of a former Chief of Defence Intelligence (names with-held), found his way to the African Independent Television (AIT) to grant an interview where he claimed that ‘Nigeria police hid bomb warnings from the Presidency’."

Court frees boy prisoner

The Namibian Newspaper: "THE High Court yesterday ordered the immediate release of a 12-year-old boy who became Namibia's youngest sentenced prison inmate after receiving a six-month jail term for housebreaking and theft at Karasburg in October.

In a review judgement handed down by Judge Elton Hoff, Acting Judge Claus Hinrichsen set aside the boy's conviction and sentence and ordered his immediate release from detention.

Judge Hoff agreed with Acting Judge Hinrichsen's decision, which was based on the principle that a child as young as the boy is presumed not to be criminally liable, especially where he had been involved in a crime while under the influence and instructions of a much older person.
The boy was sentenced to six months' imprisonment on October 19, after he had been convicted in the Karasburg Magistrate's Court on a charge of housebreaking with intent to steal and theft."
