Illegal Detention: Dasuki’s family writes NBA, wants AGF Malami punished


The family of the detained former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has formally dragged the Attorney General of the Federation and Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami, before the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) praying for an investigation and sanction of the minister over his alleged unprofessional conducts and utter disregards to the rule of law.

The family in the petition accused Mr Malami of exhibiting unprofessional conduct likely to cause anarchy in the country through his promotion of disobedience to the lawful order of court by the federal government.

In the petition dated July 23, 2008 and received by the NBA the same day, Mr Malami was alleged to have made unsalutary and unprofessional statement to denigrate the court, violate the constitution and encourage the continued breach of the fundamental human rights of Dasuki who has been clamped into the detention since December 2015.

The family also wants Mr Malami to be investigated in the resolve of the federal government not to comply with any order of court admitting the former NSA to bail.
