S’east, S’south Network condemns arrest of Senator Abaribe
...calls Buhari a civilian Emperor
The South-East and South-South Network (SESSNet) has demanded the immediate release of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe.
The group after an emergency meeting in Abuja following the Gestapo-style arrest and invasion of the home of the Senator from Abia State advised President Muhammadu Buhari to stop operating like an ‘Emperor’ in a democratic system of government.

Condemning the systematic harassment and intimidation of opposition lawmakers in the country, SESSNet wondered how a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria could be held like a common criminal without following constitutionally enshrined procedures.
SESSNet demanded that President Buhari orders his goons at the Department of State Security, DSS, to release Senator Abaribe with immediate effect.
“If Senator Abaribe has committed any crime, the DSS should follow laid down procedures and not operate as if Nigeria is a Banana Republic without the rule of law”, the Group stated.
“We know that Abaribe’s arrest is part of a plot by the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration led by President Muhammad Buhari to clampdown on the outspoken Senator Abaribe because of his constant criticism of this administration.”
“We advise Mr. President to henceforth stop operating like an emperor in a civilian system of government so as not to plunge the country into an irreversible crisis”, SESSNet concluded.
