The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA has demanded the release of National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd), and the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzakky.
Dasuki and Zakzaky have been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since 2015 despite being granted bail at different times.
NBA President, Abubakar Mahmoud said this while addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday.
He said, “The NBA wishes to use this opportunity to call on the Federal Government to continually demonstrate religious adherence to the tenets of constitutional democracy. In this regard the NBA is appalled at the continued detention of certain individuals in blatant disobedience to court orders.
“We call on the government to without further delay respect these orders.”
