“We have been very clear with the President in our various meetings that the rule of law must be upheld,” said Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of Jos, according to a Nigerian daily.

“I condemn anything that has no legal backing,” he added. “We are not just a banana republic; we are a serious nation populated by millions of people and we should measure up to international standard. We should be seen to follow due process.”
