Attorneys for Sustainable Democracy, a seasoned-democracy organization, on Friday condemned the arrest of the Zamfara state residence of assembly Speaker, Sanusi Rikiji, his deputy, Muhammad Gumi, Majority chief, Isah Abdulmumini and the leader Whip, Abdullahi Dansadau, with the aid of the branch of state safety, over their alleged plan to impeach Governor Abdulaziz Yari.
Spokesperson for the organization, Mr. Mohammad Zubair, stated that the arrest of the lawmakers was no longer best unconstitutional and shocking, but a extreme risk to democracy.
in line with him, the lawyers are “disenchanted with the motion of DSS operatives.”
Zubair stated, “it’s far the constitutional duty of the legislature to conduct research into any allegation of financial misappropriation via the executive arm.
“As authentic representatives of the human beings, they have got the duty to initiate impeachment manner towards the governor and it’s miles for the governor to protect himself earlier than a committee of inquiry to be hooked up with the aid of the nation chief judge.
“So, how on this planet can the workplace of the DSS arrest and detain them at the allegation that they want to exercising their constitutional obligation?
“The DSS’ movement turned into an attempt to silence the voice of the human beings and that would not be taken gently by means of a serious minded community.
“We therefore name on the DG of the DSS to reserve for the immediate launch of the detained residence members and smooth public apology to their respective constituencies and Nigerians in widespread or we will be left with out a choice but to sue the DSS and different associated businesses for the condemnable act.”
Zubair also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to interfere and phone Governor Yari to order over what the legislature defined as an abuse of workplace, which also brought about their constitutional movement.
The attorney entreated the Zamfara nation Commissioner of Police to repair peace in the kingdom.=================================== ***CONNECT WITH US***
