Abuja - Campaign for Democracy, South East zone has given President Muhammadu Buhari seven days to release the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, the Publicity Secretary of PDP, Olisah Metuh and the former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki, Vanguard reports.
The group joined other human rights bodies that have been clamouring for the immediate release of these detainees.
In the statement by its chairman in the zone, Dede A. Uzor, CD recalled that Kanu was arrested on October 17, 2015 and a court of competent jurisdiction granted him bail, yet Buhari defiled the court order by keeping him in detention, just as he also refused to obey the court order which granted Dasuki bail to travel abroad for his medical check-up.
