Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan,
President and Commander-in-Chief
of the Armed Forces of
Aso Rock Villa,
A CALL FOR YOUR DIRECT INTERVENTION IN THE ARREST AND DETENTION OF ALHAJI MUJAHID DOKUBO-ASARI IN BENIN REPUBLIC
We are solicitors to Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, a Nigerian citizen.
We write to bring to your notice that onTuesday, November 26, 2013, a Nigerian citizen, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, was unjustly arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, around the hours of 1:00pm and 2:00pm by the country’s gendarmes (Police Force).
He was picked up around the Lubeleyi roundabout and taken to an unknown destination.
We want to emphasise that Alhaji Dokubo-Asari, even though a Nigerian, carries on legitimate business and has been living partly in Benin Republic for many years now. In fact, he owns houses, schools and an academy in that country. All these places have been earched and nothing incriminating was found.
We think his arrest and detention is a ploy by certain forces in Nigeria in unholy alliance with the Beninoise government to keep him away as 2015 approaches.
We call on you to use your good offices to immediately intervene and ensure that no harm befalls Alhaji Dokubo-Asari and to use all diplomatic means to secure his immediate release
and safe return to Nigeria.
Do not hesitate to leave your opinion in the comment section below.
