Dasuki and Sowore
It will be recalled that both Sowore and Dasuki have been in detention for a while. Dasuki has been detained since the inception of the government of President Mohammadu Buhari. Sowore on the other hand was detained released and rearrested again. There had been a lot of public outcry for the release of both Sowore and Dasuki since the courts have granted them bail. But for a long time the public demand did not yield any fruit until now.
