Some lawmakers said they are set to invoke the relevant laws of the Senate to compel the Attorney General of the Federation, Mallam Abubakar Malami to ensure the immediate release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
The leader of the group of senators agitating for the release of the two detainees, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa while speaking with journalists yesterday at the National Assembly decried the continued disobedience of court orders regarding the detention of Kanu and Dasuki.
Ohuabunwa also asked the Senate to urge Malami to advise President Muhammadu Buhari to free both Kanu and Dasuki.
He said the continued detention of the IPOB leader and the former NSA despite court orders to free them was violation of their fundamental human rights.
The senator added: “I still stand by my prayers last week on the floor of the Senate that the Attorney General of the Federation should advice the President to release Kanu and Dasuki. I believe their continued incarceration was disobedience of court order.”
