Continuous detention of Dasuki, Kanu, Wicked and Barbaric – Fani Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to release some political detainees in the country, saying their detention was illegal and barbaric.

The former Aviation Minister called on the President to release former NSA Sambo Dasuki, leader of the Indigeous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Warimpa Dudafa and former FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed.

All accused persons are currently in custody of security agencies over their alleged involvement in corrupt practices and for alleged treason.

Reacting via a series of tweets, Fani-Kayode said: “Col Sambo Dasuki has been illegally detained under the most hideous condition for one year, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for one year, Mr Warimpa Dudafa for eight month and Sen Bala Mohammed for one month.

“This is wicked, barbaric, and inhuman. It is a gross violation of their human rights and civil liberties.

“None of them have been convicted of any crime and the courts have ordered that each of them be released.

“I hereby call on President Muhammadu Buhari to RELEASE them and allow them to go home to their families.”


  1. This is my problem with Buhari's administration. Mr president is the most lawless man in Nigeria. Even after court told them to stop the 50 naira deduction from current account, they still do it. Even after court in Nigeria and Ecowas court told them to release Dasuki, they refused. How can you say that change begins with you and yet you don't obey the law? What are you encouraging others to do? This is why we couldn't acquire the fighters jet we went for in Brazil. I am so disappointed in Mr President, this is not the political development we want. This is a sign of dictatorship.

  2. but what they stole is not illegal bah?

  3. Olu, are you there?
    FFK please keep you mouth shut if you want to spend this xmas with your family. Just save yourself or you go in for it.

  4. Fani have some point, this is to show that Nigeria doesn't practice democracy and the fundamental human right is not fully practice..

    Sorry to say,Nigeria is a country anything can go..

    If Nigeria is not a lawless country,i see no reason,why they should still keep all those people in custody for months now,without the proper process..
