“After 143 days in illegal imprisonment and isolation, Yele remains effectively detained with his movement restricted to Abuja. I hope the Nigerian Government drops the baseless charges and respects Yele's right to freedom of expression and due process as stipulated under the Nigerian Constitution and International law.”
