– The concerned senators are led by Peoples Democratic Party Senator Mao Ohabunwa representing Abia North

If the senators have their way, Nnamdi Kanu (left) and Sambo Dasuki (right) will soon be set free
Some senators have begun moves to get the federal government to release from detention leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu and former national security adviser Sambo Dasuki.
The Nation reports that the senators may have concluded arrangements to invoke relevant Senate rules to compel the Attorney General of the Federation Mallam Abubakar Malami to see to immediate release of the two men.
The concerned senators, the report said, is led by Chief Mao Ohuabunwa who drew the attention of the Senate to the continued detention Kanu and Dasuki despite court orders directing the Federal Government to release them.
We recalled that Ohuabunwa, during plenary last week, asked the Senate to prevail on the Attorney General of the Federation to advice President Muhammadu Buhari to free both Kanu and Dasuki the same way he (Malami) advised the Customs boss to ignore Senate invitation.
The Nation reports that the Abia North senator told journalists in Abuja that the continued detention of Kanu and Dasuki despite court orders was a gross violation of the fundamental human rights of the two men.
He said: ”I still stand by my prayers last week on the floor of the Senate that the Attorney General of the Federation should advice the president to release Kanu and Dasuki the same way he advised the Customs boss to ignore Senate invitation on the ground that the matter was in court.
“We should have respect for rule of law and I support the call for the immediate release of Kanu and Dasuki.”
Meanwhile, We gathered that IPOB has called on Justice Binta Nyako to guard her utterances in the ongoing trial of its leader Nnamdi Kanu.
The group in a statement signed by its new spokespersons Ikenna Chinaka and Grace Ukpai said Nyako has aligned herself with the dictates of President Muhammadu Buhari.
