This is contained in a statement signed by the Chairman, Nigerian Bar Association, Abuja (Unity) Branch, Mr. Bulus Y. Atsen

“I am pleased to announce that Mr. Daniel Makolo, Esq. has regained his freedom today the 17th August, 2020.” Atsen said

He appreciated members of the Human Rights Committe of the Branch and other members who showed up during the representation of Makolo in court.

Atsen said “I wish to thank the members of the Branch Human Rights Committee led by the Vice-Chairman, Mofe Ogbe as well as Isaac Ebikwo and the fantastic members of the Branch who showed up in solidarity to put up a befitting representation for Mr. Makolo.”
