The continued deten­tion of Mr Godwin Obla (SAN) by the Economic and Finan­cial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been de­scribed by the Coalition of Civil Society Groups for Transparency and Good Governance (CCSGTGG) as vindictive.

The group’s Secretary, Comrade Muhammed Goni Alhassan, said this in a press release on Mon­day. He said the non-release of Obla, who was a lawyer to Rivers State governor, Nyesome Wike, at the election petitions tribunal was no longer ac­ceptable.

He said that while the group was in support of the current fight against corruption, it was in the overall interest of Nige­rians and the nation that the fight be carried out with strict adherence to the rule of law.
