Austin Okai
A pressure group#free Austin usman okai#, some non-governmental organisations and civil society and liberty ‎organisations will institute a 500 million naira legal process of breach of fundamental human rights against kogi state government for keeping him behind bar beyond 24 hours against the provisions of the statutory laws

The groups resolved after due deliberation to join the Inspector General of police,the Director General ‎of Directorate of state security service(DSS) and other relevant agencies and individuals connected to the illegality and delay in the release of the social crusader, Austin usman okai

The pressure group in assemblage of human rights lawyers which include mike ozekhome,femi falana will by today approach a federal high court in lokoja to press home abuses and infringement on his rights and privileges using government apparatus to perpetrate it's illegalities

The group intend to sought for damages of 500 million having unlawfully detained, charged to court,granted bail and re-arrested for drawing government attention through criticisms the need to pay the state workforce and pensioners entitlements of their monthly legitimate earnings in the last 15 months

Okai has demanded for transparent and accountable leadership in respect of billions of naira funds accrued to the state and misplaced or mismanaged by the present administration into bogus and corrupt ridden contracts

The state government In a twist had petitioned the IG of police accusing comrade okai who was been detained of planning to make the state ungovernable to cover up its misdemeanours and efforts to silence the people's voice

True to comrade Austin. Usman Okai's agitation,the 20 billion bailout fund,over 11 billion paris club refund both in first tranches could not be accounted for denying the state from accessing the second tranches ‎along with 10 billion naira infrastructural fund,16 billion refund from the federal government on the reconstruction of federal roads

Since January 2015,kogi government had no access to UBEC and MDGs/SDGs funds for the deliberate refusal of the state government to honour completion of projects and payment of counterpart funds thus denying the state access to intervention program from this agencies

Monthly federal allocations to kogi is also in a precarious situation including council funds as the Accountant general's office,Auditor general office,SA local government and chieftaincy affairs and office of the COS to the governor are been investigated by the EFCC for erratic returns of funds allocated to the state
