Nigeria Navy should release 40 persons ‘detained’ – Falana

Femi Falana, a Nigerian Lawyer has written to President Muhammadu Buhari to order the immediate release of 40 persons reportedly in the detention of the Nigerian Navy.

He made the call in a letter dated 19 and made available to PREMIUM TIMES on Sunday.

Mr Falana, in the letter, said he has received complaints from the families of the detainees that they were not allowed to communicate with them (detainees).

He also said they are in dehumanising conditions for periods ranging from six to eight months without trial.

The letter titled, “Request for Release of 40 Nigerian Citizens from Illegal Custody of Nigerian Navy” also asked the president to sanction the Chief of Naval Staff for disobeying a court order freeing some of the suspects.

The Navy is yet to respond to Mr Falana’s letter.
