DSS SPEAKS ON DETAINED EKITI STATE LAW MAKER'S STATE OF HEALTH




DSS MEDIA UPDATE
You may have been aware of the recent situation in Ekiti State in which the DSS was accused of abducting of the State’s Assembly Legislators.

The fact is that one of the members of the Assembly, Hon. Akanni AFOLABI was duly invited by the Service over some serious breaches bordering on State security and for which he has some explanations to make.  These breaches fall under the purview of the DSS to investigate.



This Press Conference has become necessary in order to debunk a rumour which is being dangerously spread in Ekiti State by some mischief makers to the effect that Hon. AFOLABI has died in custody.  Nigerians and Ekiti people in particular are convinced to see that AFOLABI is hale and hearty as he is being presented to the Press today.

The DSS will therefore warn all those who have planned to make a meat out of this to desist from it and stir clear from trouble as the Service will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law against any one or persons that may engage in violent actions of any kind.

In a similar vein, all law abiding Ekiti residents should go about their normal businesses as the Service assures them of full protection by security agencies.

Judge Orders Release of Dasuki’s Military Aide … Warns EFCC, Army Against Impunity, Unlawful Detentions








A Judge of Abuja High Court, sitting in Jabi has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and the Nigerian Army (NA), to release a serving Colonel Nicholas Ashinze who was Military Assistant to former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.



Colonel Ashinze who was detained before resuming his new posting as Defence Attaché in Germany, has been in detention since December 23, 2015.



In a judgment today, Justice Yusuf Haliru, directed the respondents to immediately release the applicant on self-recognition, saying his detention for over three months without trial, was “‎illegal, wrongful, unlawful and constituted a blatant violation of the fundamental rights of the applicant.”



The court also ordered immediate release of documents and items the anti-graft agency seized from the house of the applicant.



‎Justice Haliru who cautioned the EFCC and the Army which he said acted as if Nigeria was still under military ‎dictatorship said: “The EFCC is a creation of the ‎law. The court will not allow it to act as if it is above the law. It is remarkable to note that the motto of the EFCC is that nobody is above the law, yet they are acting as if they are above the law.



“The EFCC Act is not superior to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The respondents in this matter have not behaved as if we are in a civilised society. They have behaved as if we are in a military dictatorship ‎where they arrest and release persons at will.”



The judge said the constitution stipulated that any person so detained should be charged to court within reasonable time not exceeding two months from the date of arrest.



Justice Haliru stressed that under section 36 of the 1999 constitution, as amended, an accused person is deemed innocent until his guilt is established. ‎ He therefore asked: “Why has the 1st respondent kept the applicant without bringing him to court? Why was the applicant, being a serving military officer who could be easily reached, not granted administrative bail? Or is it that the applicant has been found guilty and already serving his jail term?‎



“Nobody should be subjected to the whims and caprices of the EFCC.



“The essence of the rule of law and constitutional provisions is to ensure a just balance between the ruler and the ruled, between the powerful and the weak.



“Though the EFCC has the responsibility to investigate financial crime, it must however conduct its operations in accordance with the rule of law. “The court is empowered to guard against i‎mproper use of power by any member of the society or agency, EFCC inclusive.‎



“The detention of the applicant, for all intent and purposes, is not just unfair but unfortunate

"We all support the fight against corruption but it must not be done with utter impunity and disregard to rule of law. The right to personal liberty is guaranteed every citizen of Nigeria by our constitution



Why has the first respondent fail to bring the applicant to court since December 2015? Is it that the first, second and third respondents already sentenced the applicant to jail in their own court.

“The continued detention of the applicant since December is a blatant violation of his fundamental human right.



The Justice Haliru thereafter declared that: “The respondents are hereby ordered to release the applicant."
