A political group under the auspices of United Progressive Political Parties (UPPP) has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to caution those saddled with the responsibility of enforcing the law to do so with diligence in order not to undermined the rule of law.

The spokesman of UNPP Hon. Ibrahim Itodo made the call on Wednesday at a press conference held in Lokoja, Kogi state.

He lamented that the actions of Inspector General of Police, the Attorney General of the federation, EFCC and other security agencies declaring the former governor of Kogi state Alhaji Yahaya Bello wanted was done with utmost disregard for rule of law and fragrant disobedience of the constitution that protects Nigerians fundamental human rights.

According to him “After our thorough investigation of the dramatization of the EFCC in the residence of our immediate past Governor Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello, it was clear an unambiguous that the abiding citizen, the man who has meritoriously served Kogi state with all sense of commitment and honour deserves to be treated by the constituted authority in all arms of this country.

“This press conference should not be misconstrued as supporting corruption but to call on all those saddled with the responsibilities of law and order to be cautioned to apply due diligence in administering the rule by following due process.

“It is quite provoking and unable to fathom why former Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello be declared wanted with impunity even when he’s been protected by lawful security aides sent by the IGP, and also restricted from being arrested and intimidated by a High Court of Justice in Kogi State.

“We advise that, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello’s name be removed from the wanted list because it was done with impunity and flagrant disobedient of the law” the group said.

He therefore urged the Minister of Justice and the Anthony General of Federation, and the Inspector General of Police who are the custodians of the rule of law to do so discreetly without the abuse of human rights.
