Unlawful Detention: Stop Violation Of Human Rights, Respect Rule Of Law - EU, ECOWAS Warn Buhari

The European Union (EU) has charged the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government to make respect for the rule of law as some innocent persons were being detained without trial.

Thus, the EU said, was necessary to avoid the innocent ones being subjected to unlawful detention and other forms of injustice.

EU Ambassador and Head of Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Mr. Michel Arion gave the advice when he spoke with newsmen, shortly after meeting with Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma Egba, in Abuja, at the weekend.

“Impunity is not good in the fight against corruption or any other perceived impunity in the society. Respect for the rule of law remains the best and there’s need for the Federal Government to improve on that. We have observed that a lot of people are kept in detention without trial. That is total violation of their fundamental right of freedom,” said Arion.

He added that his visit to the NDDC chairman was to familiarise himself with the regional development agency and also, inform Ndoma-Egba of upcoming EU plans and programmes, “targeted at expediting the developmental agenda of the region by the Nigerian government.”
