Hell will break loose if Dasuki, others are harmed, Fani-Kayode warns Buhari

04 January 2016, 07:01

Abuja – Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reportedly sent a message to President Muhammadu Buhari threatening him over the detention of Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, Colonel Sambo Dasuki and Nnamdi Kanu.

According to Premium Times, Fani-Kayode posted the message on his Facebook page.

"… President Buhari and his government should please take note of the following:
"Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, Colonel Sambo Dasuki and Mr Nnamdi Kanu must NOT be beaten, tortured, poisoned or murdered whilst they are in your custody or else all hell will break loose," read the message.

Buhari made it clear last week during his maiden media chat that government will not release the prominent detainees despite several court orders for their release.

Buhari, however, did not discuss the propriety of defying court orders when he spoke on national TV.

A Federal High Court set no bail conditions and ordered the unconditional release of Biafra separatist leader Kanu on December 17. Kanu was detained October 17 on charges of terrorism and financing terrorism. His cause led to a civil war that killed 1 million people in the 1960s.

Former national security adviser Dasuki was detained November 4 after intelligence agents surrounded his home for days to prevent him from leaving the country after a court allowed him bail to seek medical care abroad.

El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, is being held by the police after troops of the Nigerian Army killed a yet unknown number of his followers, and destroyed the organisation’s headquarters in Zaria.

"If you see the atrocities these people committed against this country!" Buhari said in justification. "We can't allow them to jump bail,” Buhari said during his media chat.
