In a statement in Onitsha, Anambra State, CD expressed concern that Pres. Buhari had formed the habit of cracking down on Igbo leaders at any slight provocation.
In the statement by its chairman, Dede A. Uzor, CD said it wasn't fair that the Pres. refused to release Kanu despite being granted bail, just as he also refused to obey the court order which granted Dasuki bail to travel abroad for his medical check-up.
The statement noted that CD was not against arresting any corrupt public officers, but reminded Buhari of the need to obey the sanctity of court orders or rulings, which he swore to uphold.
