Public Interest Lawyers’ League, (PILL), an Abuja-based organisation, has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to sack General Andrew Owoye Azazi, the National Security Adviser. PILL made this appeal yesterday in its statement condemning the bomb blasts that hit ThisDay offices in Kaduna and the FCT.
A statement issued to the press by Abdul Mahmud, the league’s president said: “Once again, we call on President Goodluck Jonathan to sack without delay his National Security Adviser, General Azazi. Clearly, with one bomb attack too many, he has failed in his (advisorial) remit.”
The league condemned the bomb explosion at Thisday newspapers. “..May we use this medium to deplore the attacks on the offices of ThisDay Newspapers in Utako/Jabi area of Abuja.
“No matter the fundamental disagreements individuals or groups may have against the newspaper, the newspaper and other newspapers and their owners and staff have the right to practice their trade. The press as the fourth estate of the realm must be allowed to discharge the role given to it by our constitution. We call on the law enforcement agencies to bring the perpetrators of the attacks on ThisDay to book and with the urgency that it deserves as well.
“Though details are still sketchy; but we solidarise and empathise with the publishers of ThisDay and commiserate with those who may have been injured or killed in the attacks.
