A Public Affairs Analyst and Political Commentator, Deji Adeyanju has advised the president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to be civil in treating the case of the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele and Abdulrasheed Bawa, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, who was suspended late night on Wednesday, June 14, 2023.
Adeyanju who urged Tinubu not to be lawless like the immediate past president, Muhammadu Buhari, advised that Emefiele and Bawa should be released from the custody of the Department of States Services, and be charged to court for legal trial.
Emefiele who was suspended last weekend, was arrested by the DSS immediately after his suspension and has since been held in custody, ever since then, likewise Bawa who was suspended last night has since been held in the DDS custody.
Adeyanju who reacted through his Twitter handle emphasized that Emefiele and Bawa should not be held as political prisoners, noting that both men should not be detained without trial.
“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,” he wrote.
