Nigerian public commentator, Deji Adeyanju has called out the Department of State Services, DSS.
He urged the DSS to release sacked former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele and suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa.
According to him, President Bola Tinubu’s administration should release Emefiele and Bawa, stressing that he should not be lawless like his predecessor.
Adeyanju stressed that Emefiele and Bawa should not be held as political prisoners.
Tweeting, the rights activist said both men should not be detained without trial.
According to Adeyanju: “The DSS must release Emefiele and Bawa or charge them to court. The era of political prisoners should be gone forever.
“The Tinubu government should not be a lawless one like that of Buhari where people are detained unconstitutionally without trial.”
Tinubu had suspended Emefiele over the weekend and the DSS picked him up for investigations.
He’s still held by the secret police as investigation into his activities while in office continues.
Similarly, the president suspended Bawa from office last night and he was arrested by the DSS.
