SaharaReporters has gathered that Colonel Yabaji, head of the barracks in Sokoto where Idakpini is detained, unleashed about eight soldiers to torture him after receiving orders from Buratai.

Top army sources told the online publication that Idakpini had been barred from medical treatment despite his health taking a severe dip.

KanyiDaily recalls the human rights lawyer, Tope Akinyode, had obtained a court order from the Abuja Federal High Court since July 22 2020 mandating the army to grant Idakpini immediate access to his lawyer and family but the army had refused to obey the order.
