HURIWA to EFCC: Stop harassing Atiku Abubakar and Family:

*Condemns Olisa Agbakaoba’s busy body against Atiku:

 

A leading pro-democracy and non-governmental organization – HUMAN RIGHTS WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (HURIWA) has condemned the sudden intensified harassment, arrests, detention and the media persecution of family members of the leading opposition presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

HURIWA condemned the EFCC for looking the other way whilst the national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) Ex.gov. Bola Ahmed Tinubu Was reportedly seen tellig the media that he could carry his cash anyhow he wants and give them to whomsoever he wants just as the Rights group wondered how the EFCC did not arrest the two bullion vans that allegedly conveyed huge cash hauls to the Lagos home of Senator. Ahmed Bola Tinubu. The Rights group further carpeted EFCC for refusing to stop the airlifting of huge cash reportedly to Kwara state just before the Presidential and National Assembly’s Elections which was widely reported by credible media channels. 

The Rights group also carpeted the Lagos based lawyer Mr. Olisa Agbakaoba for waging a relentless media campaign against the decision of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to challenge his alleged rigging in the last presidential poll in the court of law. “Olisa Agbakaoba is an annoying interloper and a busy body who should just shut up and do other things than becoming actively engaged in what appeared like commercial media interventions to dissuade Atiku Abubakar from going to court to retrieve his alleged stolen mandate”.

HURIWA wondered why such a high profile lawyer would be at the fore front of those deploying media publications to demonize the opposition politician only because he has decided to seek redress in the court of competent jurisdiction which is allowed constitutionally.

Besides, HURIWA condemns the motley of hired goons including commercial clerics like ‘reverend father’ Ejike Mbaka and some amorphous ethno-religious contraptions and individuals who may have been hired by president Muhammadu Buhari or his associates to demonize and criminalize the lawful decision of Atiku Abubakar to challenge his reported electoral defeat in court.

The Rights group specifically asked the international community who were deceived into hastily and errorneously endorsing the controversial outcomes of the violent 2019 presidential polls that led to the killings of 50 Nigerians and the violent rape of even electoral officials, to demand that Nigerian government stopped deploying the politically tainted anti-graft body to witch-hunt the opposition leader.
