Adoke, in a letter by his lawyer, Femi Oboro, urged the United Nations body not to watch while he is persecuted for an offense he knows nothing about

A former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke, has cried for help to the United Nations Human Rights Committee over his alleged persecution in the Malabu oil deal.
Adoke, in a letter by his lawyer, Femi Oboro, urged the United Nations body not to watch while he is persecuted for an offense he knows nothing about.
In the letter titled: “Re: Complaint to the United Nations Human Rights Committee on violation of the rights set forth in the international covenant on civil and political rights,” Oboro said Adoke is being persecuted by the Federal Government and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The letter, dated July 20, 2017, reads in full: “I have today 20th July 2017 filed a complaint on behalf of my client Mr. Mohammed Bello Adoke, SAN, former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Federal Republic of Nigeria, against the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for unmitigated acts of persecution, intimidation, harassment, threat of deprivation right to life, unlawful interference with right to family life and livelihood.
“This complaint has become necessary in view of the constant harassment, intimidation and persecution that my client has endured in the hands of the Federal Government of Nigeria and its agencies.
