Addressing newsmen today in Abuja, Eleto stated that Alhaji Saheed Mosadoluwa Ibile is currently held in custody by the Special Tactical Squad (STS) in Guzape, Abuja, since January 20, 2024.
Eleto argued that their client is a victim of a petition by Mike Utomi, deceiving the police to duplicate investigations already concluded by the police.
He mentioned that while recognizing the ongoing investigation, the legal team compassionately implores the office of the DIG to release Ibile, citing health concerns and the need for family reconciliation and business concentration.
Additionally, the legal representatives called for an inquiry into the alleged illegal petition, emphasizing their clients’ right to life and personal liberty.
Eleto stressed that the matter remains pending in various courts, and the legal team seeks a fair resolution in the pursuit of justice.
The lawyer challenged the Force Public Relations Officer to parade our client if he feels Mr. Saheed Ibile is culpable of any of the allegations against him. He also challenged the FPPRO, PSO 1 & 2 to defend the police, questioning whether the continued detention of Mr. Sahed Ibile is legal and justifiable.
All the officers have put the blame on the IGP, claiming that the IGP ordered the police to detain the innocent SAHEED IBILE continually.
“While we know that the IGP might not be aware of this anti-democratic act of the police officers involved, we urge the IGP to put hatred aside and release MR SAHEED IBILE on bail.
“The OFFENCES he was arrested for are bailable, and he is ready to provide reliable sureties,” he said.
