Nigerian students detained
Accused of conspiracy to murder and attempted murder
THE CAMPAIGN continues to defend the detained Nigerian student activists, Olatunde Dairo, Taiwo Hassan Soweto and Akinola Sakuri. The application for bail for Olatunde Dairo and Taiwo Hassan Soweto was refused on 26 November in Oshogbo, Nigeria. This means that they stay in jail on a series of false allegations, including conspiracy to murder and attempted murder.

The rule of law in Nigeria is only favourable to the big-time looters of the treasury. Many established rogue governors in the Obasanjo government are free men at present because of the rule of law. They were granted bail after spending a few days in prison. Also recently, a notorious political thug and election rigger, Lamidi Adedubu, was granted bail within just two hours at court where he was arraigned for breach of the public peace.
More information is available on the CWI website www.socialistworld.net where details of where to send protests can also be found.
