The Nigerian House of Representatives on Thursday decides to begin the process of rescuing a soldier, Lance Corporal Martins Idakpein, who was arrested and detained for criticizing the service chiefs over the rising spate of insecurity in Nigeria.
While speaking on Thursday at the plenary, Mr Ndudi Elumelu who is the Minority Leader at the house of rep moved the motion to call for his rescue.
Speaking further Mr Elumelu said, “The House is disturbed that though Section 122 of the Armed Forces Act forbids the military from perpetually detaining any officer, Lance Corporal Martins ldakpein, has been held in detention till date and his wife who tried to secure his release has also been detained.
“This is an affront to the letters of Chapter 4 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, which guarantees the fundamental human rights of citizens.”
The House mandated the Committees on Defense and Army to “investigate the alleged detention of Lance Corporal Martin’s ldakpein and his wife.”
Also, the House asked that “ldakpein should be brought before the relevant House committees and the leadership, to brief them of the happening in the northern part of the country.”
