I will attend the trials of Dasuki, Zakzaky, says Fayose

One day after joining Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in court, Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, has promised to attend the trials of Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser, and Ibrahim Zakzaky, founder of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).

Dasuki and Zakzaky are currently in detention.

Speaking on‎People, Politics and Power, a programme on AIT, Fayose said his presence at the court in Abuja shows his belief in “justice for all irrespective of tribe”.

He also said the government of President Muhammadu Buhari had turned Kanu into a hero across the world.

“I have no personal relationship with Kanu but I have been consistent in drawing attention of Nigerians to the trend of not regarding court orders and rulings by the present federal‎ government,” he said.

“I am from the north-east, west and south of this country. I am a complete and detribalised Nigerian. I will attend the trial of Dasuki and El-Zakzaky too. Courts in the land and even ECOWAS court directed that Dasuki be released but the government has refused to heed the call.

“The federal government is the one making Kanu a hero. Anywhere in the world, agitation is normal. In the United Kingdom, there is agitation in Northern Ireland, even, United Kingdom itself is agitating in Europe.

“Let people agitate for whatever reason as long as it is constitutional. I am not in support of the breakup of Nigeria. But ‎when court grants bail to people, release them and allow them to attend their trials from home.”
