  1. He’s being in costudy for so long . He should be granted bail if the health conditions are being met as quick as possible

  2. Truly buhari has no reason to still keep this man in detention up till now , what kind of man is this , always against the law , yet he wants to rule us again ,thunder go kill you there

  3. Is leaving him in there going to solve Nigeria problem? They better think well…we should avoid more protest…

  4. If this is the way the Government wants to contain this sect from becoming dangerous like boko haram,then by all means they should continue…

  5. why are these people bent on causing problem for nigerians by holding on to the leader of this shiite group? i thought a court already asked him to be released on bail? why are there many contradictions on this mans case? this man should be let go so peace will reign, at least we will know that if he is released and the shiite group come to abuja for protest, then we will know they have something else in mind.
