The NBA Maiduguri branch has condemned in its entirety the unlawful, continuing detention of Sadiq Mohammed Kachallah, by the police.
Mr. Kachallah is being detained at the G.R.A. Police Station after securing his client’s release. Ironically, he was locked in the cell on the orders of the Divisional Police Officer, Hussani Sambo over yet-to-be-explained charges Friday evening. Kachallah works with Audu Musa and Co.
“Its a sad day in the history of NBA Maiduguri branch”, the branch chairman, Muhammed Umaru said in a press briefing Saturday morning.
”We vehemently denounce such brazen act of disregard for the law, human dignity. ”
To this end, Mr. Umaru has enjoined all members to converge at the Bar Centre by 8:00 am on Monday, 28th of October, 2019, for a peaceful demonstration against recent acts of unconstitutionality and unprofessional conducts perpetrated by the Nigeria Police against lawyers in Borno State.
”The branch will take further steps on Monday, we are not going to court, rather we will converge in our full lawyer’s regalia at the said station to address the DPO. Thereafter proceed to the office of Commissioner of Police in Maiduguri to tender our grievances”
“I was at the police station this morning to see him ( Kachallah) around 8 am, he was brought out of cell, Sadiq Kachalla said he only told the DPO, certainly as a lawyer will say, that his client is entitled to bail and that the offence is bailable offence. This prompted his illegal arrest.”
” We will seek redress in a court of law”. The Chairman vowed.
