Falana gives DSS 48 hours to release Cameroonian separatists (Punch)

A human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has given the Department of State Services 48 hours to either release the 10 Cameroonian separatists in custody or take them to court.

The senior advocate said this in a letter addressed to the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris.

Falana added  that if the DSS failed to act, he would approach a court and demand for the enforcement of their fundamental human rights.

He said, “Take notice therefore that  if our clients are not released from illegal custody or arraigned in court within 48 hours of the receipt of this letter we shall not hesitate to apply to the Federal High Court to secure the enforcement of their fundamental rights to personal liberty guaranteed by Section 35 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended and article 6 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act Cap A9 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.” Read more
