The statement reads;

The indefinite detention and degrading treatment of Muhammad Sanusi II is a travesty. He should never have been detained in the first place.

Nigerian government and Kano state authorities must end this blatant miscarriage of justice now. Release Muhammad Sanusi II from arbitrary detention.

The dethroned Emir of Kano and Muhammad Sanusi II is an anti-corruption and human rights defender within the international standards established by the UN to which Nigeria is a member.

That’s why we’re pushing to enforce his fundamental rights including to liberty.
