The Coalition of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum have asked President Bola Tinubu administration to further endear itself to the youths and elders across the North with a timely release of the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrashid Bawa.


According to The Nation, the leader of the group, Alhaji Babangida Malabu, said this before addressing a press conference in Abuja on Saturday, stating that the prolonged detention of Bawa by the Department of State Services negates the populist and progressive ideals of the current administration.


He said, “The CAYCF urges the relevant authorities, particularly the Department of State Services, to adhere to the principles of the rule of law and immediately charge Mr. Bawa to court or release him without further delay; we also implore the judiciary to swiftly review any charges brought against him and ensure a fair trial that upholds the principles of justice.”
