Obey Court Orders And Release Dasuki, El-Zakzaky, Sagay Tells Buhari Govt

Former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) He has been in detention for over a year despite court orders ordering his release

Prof. Itse Sagay, an insider of the government of President Muhammadu Buhari and Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, has advised the Federal Government to obey court orders and release former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.); and the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky from illegal detention.

Prof. Sagay gave the advice during an interview with The Punch while reacting to calls by the Nigerian Bar Association for the release of Dasuki and El-Zakzaky.

He said Federal Government should obey the court orders by immediately releasing them or appeal the orders.

He said, “The court orders should be obeyed and I don’t know what reason the government has for not releasing them. If they have good reasons, they should canvass the reasons before the court and leave the court to decide.

“If the court rules against them, then they should appeal against the ruling and then apply for stay of the ruling pending the appeal. That is what the government should do rather than detaining them perpetually.”
