Following series of consistent condemnation by activists and the international community, the Federal Government has ordered
the release of former National
Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo
Dasuki and founder of online Newspaper, Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore.
The Minister of Justice and Attorney
General of the Federation,AGF,
Abubakar Malami made this known in
a statement today, Tuesday, 24 December .
Malami explained the decision of the Federal Government to release
them was in compliance with the
bail granted the two by the court.
“The two defendants are enjoined to
observe the terms of their bail and
refrain from engaging in any act that
is inimical to public peace and
national security as well as their
ongoing trial which will run its course
in accordance with the laws of the
land,” Malami said.
Malami however remained mute on the fate of the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN , Sheik Ibrahim El Zakzakky .
This latest move by the All Progressive Congress,APC led Federal Government is bound to illicit little or no commendation as the government is seen as flouting court orders on regular basis .
