She suggested the Nationwide Meeting led by means of Lawan and Gbajabiamila to lend a hand be sure that her husband is handled in keeping with the guideline of legislation by means of making sure she is given get admission to to him.
Ahmed’s letter reads in complete beneath:
I’m Mrs. Amina Ahmed, the spouse of Mubarak Bala, the President of the Humanist Affiliation of Nigeria.
My son, Sodangi, was once born on March 17 this 12 months. On March 31, my husband needed to commute to Kaduna for paintings and we stated our goodbyes. Little did I do know then that Sodangi and I’d now not see Mubarak for months and by means of August we’d now not know if he’s alive or useless.
On April 27, 2020, S.S Umar & Co of Zoo Street Kano, Kano State made a criticism a couple of remark that my husband had posted to his Fb web page. They stated the remark was once “provocative and tense to the Muslims”. The next day to come, Mubarak was once arrested in Kaduna and he has now not been observed, or heard from, since.
The Kaduna police knowledgeable Mubarak’s attorneys that he were handed to the custody of Kano police on April 29. Regardless of many requests, Kano police have flatly refused to permit Mubarak’s attorneys to look him or to touch him by means of ‘telephone or e mail. Even after his attorneys secured a courtroom order on June 25, that ordered the Kano police to permit defence suggest get admission to to Mubarak, Habu Sani, the Kano Police Commissioner has refused to cooperate with the order.
I swear my center stopped beating once I heard Mubarak was once in Kano. He had won demise threats from that state within the previous weeks together with one from a police officer who stated he would kill Mubarak if he will have to set foot within the state. Given Kano’s historical past of spiritual violence and killing, those threats should be taken very severely.
On Would possibly 8, Mubarak’s attorneys petitioned the Federal Top Courtroom for enforcement of his elementary human rights. I was hoping this prime precedence case would get to the bottom of issues temporarily, however it didn’t. 4 listening to dates had been issued however the case has now not been heard: Would possibly 25 was once a financial institution vacation; June 18, the pass judgement on was once absent; July 9, defence suggest was once absent; July 16, defence suggest was once absent. Mubarak’s attorneys had been advised the following to be had date could be in October. I’m reminded of the announcing, justice not on time, is justice denied.
I’m really not a attorney, however I know that each individual in Nigeria is presumed blameless till confirmed to blame in a courtroom of legislation. And that implies, Mubarak, has been incarcerated as an blameless guy for greater than three months. I additionally know that each citizen detained is entitled to fulfill with their attorneys for felony recommendation. This proper has been denied to my husband. In any case, I imagine, voters will have to be charged inside of 24 hours or be launched. This proper too, has been denied Mubarak. My husband is a chemical engineer, a sort and mild circle of relatives guy who would by no means harm someone. Why is he denied essential rights which are freely given to essentially the most violent armed robbers?
I pray that my husband be handled in keeping with the rules of Nigeria. I pray that he be attempted so we will be able to in finding out if he’s to blame of any wrongdoing or now not.
However, above all, I encourage you Senators and Honourable individuals of Space of Representatives, the women and men who swear to God to uphold the guideline of legislation in my nation, on my bended knees, I encourage you please let me have evidence that Mubarak is alive, please let me see my husband and let Mubarak hang his son once more. That is all I ask of you.
