Members of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore gathered at the Federal High Court in Abuja to support their president, Bello Bodejo, and demand his immediate release.

Bodejo was arrested on January 23 after a raid on Miyetti Allah’s office in Nasarawa State over allegations related to a vigilante group.

Since his arrest, Bodejo has been held by the Defence Intelligence Agency, causing concern among Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore members.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), filed a motion on February 5 to keep Bodejo in custody pending investigations and arraignment.

Initially, Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja granted a 15-day remand for Bodejo. After this period, the court ordered the government to bring formal charges within seven days.

Amid growing tensions and calls for transparency, no charges were filed by the deadline, leading to increased demands for Bodejo’s release.

Bodejo’s legal team then filed a motion for his unconditional release, citing legal and humanitarian reasons.

The motion is scheduled for a hearing today, a crucial moment in a case that has garnered public and media attention.
