By Attah Michael Onazi

Popular Congolese warlord, Bosco Ntaganda, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after being found guilty of committing 18 counts war crimes and other crimes against humanity in July.

The sentence was issued, on Thursday, by an international criminal court.

It states that the crime was marshalled during the period when Ntaganda led the Patriotic Forces for the liberation of Congo (FPLC) military wing of the union of Congolese patriotic political group in North-Eastern Ituri province in 2002 and 2003.

He was charged for several offences ranging from childhood sexual slavery, murder, attack on civilians, mass recruitment of baby soldiers as well as rape said Robert Fremr, the presiding Czech Republican Judge.

Ntaganda who is popularly known as ” Terminator” surrendered to the U.S Embassy in the Rwandan capital Kigali in 2013 after he has escaped arrest for seven years.

He, however, maintained his grounds of having no idea of crimes levelled against him. He maintained that he was only but a revolutionary in his last statement.
