The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has recently warned President Mohammadu Buhari over the detention of some high profile people in the country. In a message posted on his Facebook wall, Mr. Kayode said that “all hell will break loose” if Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, Colonel Sambo Dasuki and Nnamdi Kanu come to any harm. Part of the post reads:
“… President Buhari and his government should please take note of the following:
“Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, Colonel Sambo Dasuki and Mr. Nnamdi Kanu must NOT be beaten, tortured, poisoned or murdered whilst they are in your custody or else all hell will break loose.”
This warning came days after president Mohammadu Buhari had his maiden media chat at the presidential villa where he stated clearly that that government will not release the prominent detainees despite several court orders for their release.
Col. Dasuki who is facing trial for allegedly diverting and sharing over $2.2 billion dollars meant for arms procurement for the anti-Boko Haram war to politicians and cronies, was re-arrested on Wednesday by the State Security Service after he was granted bail by three different courts.
Speaking on his re arrest, president Mohammadu Buhari said Dasuki is not allowed to to be moved around freely.
“If you see the atrocities these people committed against this country! We can’t allow them to jump bail.” he said.
Mr.Kanu, who is the leader of the Biafran sect, was also granted bail by a Federal high Court sitting in Abuja, but he was also re-arrested by the SSS who slammed a fresh charge of treasonable felony against him.
The president had also refused to discuss the situation of Shiite leader Ibraheem Zakzaky, who was detained with four bullet wounds on Dec. 14 in military raids that allegedly killed hundreds of his followers.
