The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Friday appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to enforce the release of former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki and Founder of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
The appeal came when the leadership of CAN, led by its National President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, paid President Buhari a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Ayokunle said the release of Dasuki and El-Zakzaky, who have been granted bail by various courts, would boost Buhari’s credentials and improve his standing with the international community.
The CAN president call for “Total adherence to the rule of law as is required by our constitution and full-blown democracy by making sure that those whose bails have been granted by competent courts like Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd) and Leader of the Shiites, Malam Ibrahim El-Zakzaky are released from detention to enjoy the bail granted them by the courts of law.
“This would ease tension in the land and give credit to your administration together with respect from the international community.”
Ayokunle further urged President Buhari to initiate a total overhaul of the nation’s security infrastructure, as well as sacking of nonperforming service chiefs.
