The Social-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to caution Governor Yahaya Bello and Kogi state authorities over the continued detention of Larry Emmanuel and Victor Anene Udoka.

SERAP tweeted this on Monday, following an allegation that the two detainees were being tortured.

SERAP, while describing the detention of the duo as unlawful, threatened to take appropriate legal action if Larry and Victor are not released within 24 hours and warned that anyone responsible for the reported torture will be pronounced to have committed an international crime.

The duo were peacefully exercising their rights to protest on April 5 when some hoodlums loyal to the state government assaulted them before the police locked them up and prevented their families from having access to them.
