Fulani Youth Association of Nigeria, FUYAN, on Tuesday, says that the continuous detention of Alhaji Abdullahi Bello Bodejo, Myetti Allah, Fulani social and cultural group is illegal.

The group says that rather than the police or the country’s ultra secretive police, Department of State Service, DSS, the military appear to be the holding Bodejo.

This, according to them is not legal.

Bodejo was arrested recently in connection with the inauguration of Nomad Vigilante Group in Lafia, the Nasarawa State’s capital on January 17th following public outcry.

Speaking on this, National publicity Secretary of the pan Fulani group, Mohammed Tasiu Suleiman, told newsmen in Kano that the alleged “continued detention of Bodejo’s by the Nigerian Army as illegal”.

Suleiman called on Nigeria’s president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to as a matter of urgency order the immediate release of Bello Bodejo.

“If the Army have evidence against Bello Bodejo, committing an offence known to law, he should be arraigned before a competent court.”

“Subjecting him to illegal detention is an infringement on his fundamental human rights as enshrined in the constitution,” the group’s publicist said.

The National publicity Secretary stated that “The Nigerian security apparatus, which is known for its professionalism, respecters of rule of law, should demonstrate such etiquette known to it, by granting the President of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Alhaji Abdullahi Bello Bodejo his constitutional rights as a law abiding citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.

The Group revealed that Miyetti Allah Leader was picked up at his office in Tudun Wada, Karu LGA of Nasarawa State and is being held at the facility of the Nigerian Army in Asokoro area of the Federal Capital Territory.

“The Army should hand over our leader to the Police or the DSS and grant them records of whatever they are investigating,” Suleiman said.
