Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, says the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government refused to obey Justice Gabriel Kolawole’s order on the release of the leaderof the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem el-Zakzakky, due to the fact it appealed the ruling.

Adesina stated this for the duration of an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday.

The President’s spokesman said the Attorney-General of the Federation at the time, Abubakar Malami (SAN), may have had his reasons for doing so for the reason that the authorities had the proper to attraction the bail.

He said, “I understand that the immediately past AGF in whose purview it used to be to make pronouncements on that, address the issue. If bail is granted and every other case subsists and there is an immediate submitting of appeal, you have to wait untilit is distributed with. So, that is a felony remember which is outside my purview however as a layman, an unlearned man as lawyers would name us, we recognize that until all instances are allotted with, you don’t say that it has been concluded.”

Adesina said the depend had consideringbeen taken earlier than court in Kaduna State and the bail hearing would come up next Monday.

He, therefore, referred to as on the Shiites to wait for the courtroom to make its ruling.

Responding to allegations that the police ought now not to have fired stay bullets into the protesters on Monday, the President’s spokesman stated the police deserve to be commended, adding that the loss of life toll would have been tons greater if the police did now not exhibit some restraint.

Adesina argued, “I inform you despite what came about yesterday, if the police had answered with larger force, you recognizewe would not be speakme about what we are speaking now.

“A deputy commissioner of police was oncekilled. Yes, very sad, that is one existencesimply like any other life. He did no longerdeserve to die in service to the united statesbut if the police had replied in comparablefashion, you would have been speakme of rivers of blood in Abuja now.

“I nevertheless consider there used to besome restraint the day past in spite of what occurred and for my part I still commend the police for displaying that restraint.”
