Falana urges Buhari to obey court orders and release Dasuki, Kanu

Lagos lawyer Femi Falana has called on the federal government to obey court orders & immediately release embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, and Biafran leader, Nnamdi Kanu. Falana made the call in a statement which he released over the weekend. In the statement, Falana said President Buhari will be disregarding the rule of law if Dasuki and Kanu are still being detained despite being granted bail by a Federal court.
“The decision of the SSS to ignore the order admitting Col. Dasuki to bail coupled with the failure to re-arraign him on fresh charges is tantamount to impunity in every material respect.
If the federal government were aggrieved by the order admitting Col. Dasuki to bail it should have challenged it in the Court of Appeal. Much as the Nigerian people are fully behind the Buhari Administration in the patriotic move to recover the looted wealth of the nation, the federal government should be advised to ensure that the procedure for the loot recovery meets the tenets of the rule of law. The order admitting the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, to bail should also be complied with.
If the federal government has other charges against both suspects (Messrs. Kanu and Dasuki) it should file them in the court. There is no provision for keeping criminal suspects at the pleasure of security officials. Meanwhile, all valid and subsisting orders made by courts in favour of criminal suspects should be obeyed without further delay,” the statement read in part

And that is how if Shekau is eventually captured, these SANS would cry wolf for his release.I'm sure FG knows the consequences of its action.Sometimes as a leader one has to look at the greater good which may negate everything that human rights stand for.The major thing is to make sure that the detainees are well taken care of & they never die so as not to make em martyrs.
I'm sure a press release from the presidency will follow this with their own version on why the can't release em

Pesin Pikin said...

I couldn't agree more

EDOH ABEL said...

True that. Falana has proved himself beyond doubt that he's only committed to upholding the rule of law. It his left to Buhari and his cohorts to respect court order and release them both, we cannot always trample on the rule of law.

Mr Femi, these people will run away if granted bail. Ibrahim Larmode is on the run, Kingsley Kuku is hiding in foreign country under the guise of medical trip, Alison is also in the UK, Obanikoro is hiding behind the books in the US. Kanu that entered Nigeria without using a valid passport will jump bail. Dasuki too would run. Sometimes, iron hand(veto power) is needed to handle some issues. The Republican Party in the US branded Obama as a Monarch who foists his will on the people, because Obama simply sought for gun control legislation. Sometimes, desperate times calls for desperate measures.omooba

All judges report to him, and all court rulings or judgements are screened in Aso Rock before delivery. Is it the change we crying for? Open your eyes people

Truth be told there is nothing like DEMOCRACY in NIGERIA. I can remember vividly that the only campaign PETE EDOCHIE did for GEJ through his voice on AIT was that NIGERIAN do not need a dictator as a president yet Buhari and his men rigged the election and worn. I am not surprise if he violate the law or not we all know that he has nothing to offer to this country rather than playing blame games. God pass you Buhari you must pay for all your conspiracies. Ann say so.

Well i'm from the south south region but, i voted for President Buhari but these past few months has made me have a rethink. At some point i feel Mr. President doesn't understand how thinks work in a democratic government,he is playing the role of a dictator here. Mr. President please respect the rule of law for the sake of Peace and that of your party(APC),don't forget our vote got you to where you are today and if you betray the trust of the people, trust Nigerians they won't hesitate to vote APC out come 2019.

paparazi said...

Falana should keep quiet, because he did not get political appointment.

anonymous said...

The reason why Buhari is basking on this new found power is that leaders from the north have virtually kept quiet to his lawlessness. He is no longer a military ruler, someone from the north should ring that into his head. If not for democracy that MKO ABIOLA fought and died for, Buhari won't have smelt the seat of power again. Majority of Nigerians support the fight against corruption but also want the government to obey the constitution of the federal Republic of Nigeria

You mean he should release Dansuki with all this staggering amount involved in his case?rule of law indeed.

You this stupid dirty lawyer called Falana or whatever u call your silly self, How much did PDP pay you for this? Did Dasuki follow the rule of law before he looted money? If your family members were among those killed by boko haram because of the looting of PDP hoodlums, you will want the looters killed even before they go to court. So dont come here and talk rubbish. Fool!
