We have made representations to the Nigerian authorities to act on the court order mandating release of Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenah Ibraham. We have not made representations regarding Sambo Dasuki. The Rule of Law is critical in any country, as it is in Nigeria. We encourage the government to uphold the rule of law and ensure due process is followed.
