Abaribe: Grant Him Bail Or Charge Him To Court- Falana Reacts
Following the arrest of a Senator, Eyinnaya Abaribe, the Human Rights Lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana has ordered the Federal Government to call the Department of State Services, DSS to order.
NIGERIA NEWS in earlier reports covered the arrest of the Senator who is from Abia.
Falana made this known via a statement which reads, “The state security service has said that senator Enyinnaya Abaribe is being detained on account of his links with the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).”
“It is common knowledge the senator had stood surety for Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB; since Mr. Kanu failed to show up in court the senator has been asked by the federal high court to produce the defendant in the treason charge the federal government ought to have allowed the law to take its course.”
“However, if there is evidence that the senator has committed any other criminal offence whatsoever he should be arranged in court without any further delay and if the state security service has not concluded the investigation of the allegations against the senator he should be admitted to administrative bail pending his possible arraignment in court.”
