“The Human Rights  Officer of the NBA visited the lawyers at the Kuje Prison on Friday 27th April 2018 where they are currently being remanded and interestingly we found out that Kuje prison officials refused to admit the lawyers initially on the grounds that there was no charge number on the warrant of their remand which led to them being taken back to SARS cell for two nights before being returned to the prison.”

“The NBA will ensure to see to the release of our dear colleagues and also make sure those behind their unwarranted detention are made to face the law.” Olagunju stated.
