Miyetti Allah Members Rally at Court for Release of President

Several members of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore made a significant statement today as they converged at the Federal High Court in Abuja, demanding the unconditional release of their president, Bello Bodejo.

Bodejo’s apprehension on January 23 at the Miyetti Allah’s office in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, in connection with the unveiling of a vigilante group, sparked controversy. Since then, he has been held in the custody of the Defence Intelligence Agency.

In response to the situation, the Attorney General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), filed a motion ex-parte on February 5, seeking Bodejo’s remand pending the conclusion of investigations and his subsequent arraignment in court. Subsequently, Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court granted an order for Bodejo’s remand for 15 days.

Following the lapse of the 15-day remand period, the court granted the Federal Government an additional seven days to file charges against Bodejo. During the proceedings on February 22, the judge reiterated the deadline for the filing of charges.

Bodejo’s legal representative has since filed a motion for his unconditional release, and this motion is set for hearing today.

The developments surrounding Bello Bodejo’s detention continue to attract attention, with stakeholders eagerly awaiting the outcome of today’s court proceedings.
