Nigeria: Senators Planning to Invoke Laws to Trigger Release of Dasuki, Nnamdi Kanu
According to a report from the Nation, the senators may invoke relevant Senate rules to compel the Attorney General of the Federation, Mallam Abubakar Malami to order the release of the two men.
The leader of the concerned senators, Chief Mao Ohuabunwa, drew the attention of the senate to the matter on Tuesday.
"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 the same way he advised the Customs boss to ignore Senate invitation on the ground that the matter was in court” he said.
According to him, the continued detention of Kanu and Dasuki amounted to disobedience of court orders and that he is discussing the matter with some senators to formally draw the attention of the Senate to the long detention of the duo.
