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.”
