 – Members of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore stormed the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday, March 13, to demand the unconditional release of their president, Bello Bodejo. 

Bodejo has been held in the custody of the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) since he was arrested on January 23 at the Miyetti Allah’s office in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State over the unveiling of a vigilante group. 

The Attorney General of the Federation and minister of justice, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), on February 5, filed a motion ex-parte seeking to remand Bodejo pending the conclusion of the investigation and arraignment in court.

Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court granted an order for Bodejo to be remanded for 15 days. At the expiration of the 15 days, the court gave the Federal Government seven days to file a charge against Bodejo. 

At the proceedings on February 22, the judge gave the FG seven days to file a charge against Bodejo. 

Bodejo’s lawyer subsequently filed a motion for his unconditional release. The motion is slated for hearing today, March 13.

Ahead of the hearing, Miyetti Allah members stormed the court with banners that read: “Free Bello Badejo.”
