A group, Beverly Hills Recreation Sports Club, Nnewi, has taken to street march over the continued detention of its member and patron, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah of Capital Oil and Gas.
Members of the club Monday marched through the streets of Nnewi carrying placards with different inscriptions, chanting songs that voiced their unhappiness over the continued detention of Ubah.
A statement read out to journalists before the march by Mr. George Adinnu, acting president of the club, and signed by himself and the Secretary-General, Mr. Christian Idoko called on Nigerians to rise up and fight for the release of Ubah.
They called on well meaning Nigerians to raise their voices and join efforts to fight against the alleged injustice, which, it said if left unconstrained, will infest the membrane of the country’s justice system and endanger its democracy.
Part of the statements reads; “We, the members of Beverly Hills Recreation Club, in strong terms, condemn the continued incarceration of our Prime Minister, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, the chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Industries Ltd., by the officers of the DSS, even against the directives of a Lagos High Court.
“We wish to join force with all men and women of goodwill to ask for the unconditional release of Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah in the face of this intimidation and adjudged illegal detention by the DSS.
“We have watched with awe, the unwarranted detention of Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, and call on the DSS and its privies to conform to the ordinance of the rule of law, which guarantees justice, equity and fair play.”
