“President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent move represents a watershed in the history of restitution for past wrongs in Nigeria’’
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Ojudu was equally a victim of military tyranny during the June 12 struggle, when he spent nine months in military detention.
He also stated that a similar honour given to human rights activist late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, by the president had further demonstrated the bound between the two.
“The honour given to the human rights activist Chief Gani Fawehinmi has further demonstrated the bound that existed between Buhari and the late radical lawyer, apart from representing full recognition of the role played by human rights activists since Nigeria became independent in 1960.
