Some members of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore on Wednesday in their numbers stormed the Federal High Court in Abuja to demand the unconditional release of their president, Bello Bodejo.

He had been held in the custody of the Defence Intelligence Agency since then.

The Attorney General of the Federation, 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.

But 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.
