Atiku kicks against continued detention of son-in-law, others
Defeated presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded presidential elections, Atiku Abubakar, has kicked against the continued detention of his cronies by law enforcement agencies.
Recall that operatives of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had on Saturday arrested Babalele Abdullahi, who is also the finance director of group of companies owned by Atiku and his son-in-law.
The security agents were said to have searched his residence as well as his office before taking him along with them.
The incident occurred more than two weeks after Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie was also picked by the anti-graft agency for alleged money laundering.
Writing via his Twitter handle on Monday, Abubakar, former vice-president, urged “those persecuting” the two to bear in mind that justice and peace is for all Nigerians.
According to him, “my son in law and lawyer have been detained, one for 3 weeks and the other recently. They are paying the price for supporting me.
“I urge those now persecuting them to remember that a government’s mandate is to pursue peace and justice for all, and not just those who support them.”
Atiku had earlier said Abdullahi’s arrest was aimed to discourage him from challenging the outcome of the election in court.
