The family of Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, yesterday, described the verdict of the court as shocking.

Reacting to the verdict in Kano at their Bompai residence, the family spokesman, Hadi Al-Mustapha, said “the shocking verdict has pulled a temporary setback on our concerted effort to secure his freedom.”

Devastated by the verdict and somewhat broken in spirit, Hadi Al-Mustapha, noted that the long trial, which was brought to the end yesterday, was laden with ‘political undertone,’ stressing “the case would be pursued to its logical conclusion.”

“We strongly believe in the judiciary as the last hope of the common man, but I must confess to you that we are shocked by this verdict.

But in every situation, we should give glory to Almighty Allah,” he said.

Hadi Al Mustapha, hinted “the only thing I can tell you is that we are going on appeal and we will be vindicated at last, I promise you.”

He added, that the judgment had proven beyond reasonable doubt that his brother’s case was politically motivated in the light of years it took to bring it to close. 

“Over 13 years, this man has been standing trial alongside many others but today all of them have been discharged and acquitted and my brother has been sentenced to death by hanging,” he said.
