DSS Release Activist Chido Onumah

The Department of State Services (DSS) has released Chido Onumah, coordinator of African Centre for Media & Information Literacy (AFRICMIL).

TheCable gathered from sources close to Onumah that he was released on Sunday night, hours after he was taken into custody.

Onumah was arrested by the officials of the Department of State Security (DSS) on arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja from Spain.

His arrest had drawn widespread criticism from Nigerians and groups who called for his immediate release.

AFRICMIL had also demanded his unconditional release.

The organisation had said: “Waylaying law-abiding citizens should not be turned into the preoccupation of an entire security outfit.

“The arrest of Mr Onumah, coming at the heels of harassment of other critical voices, smacks of grotesque days of the Nigerian history that Mr Onumah and his comrades fought steely against.”

It is still not clear why the DSS arrested Onumah who is a known critic of the current administration.

The service is yet to speak on the incident.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my
    opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. You really make it seem really easy along with
    your presentation however I to find this topic to be really one thing that I feel I would never understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and very large for me. I’m taking a look ahead for your next
    post, I’ll attempt to get the cling of it!

  3. We absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    Would you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating
    on many of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome web site!

  4. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. I got this web page from my friend who told me regarding this web site and at the moment this time
    I am browsing this site and reading very informative articles or reviews at this time.

  6. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this brilliant blog!

    I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed
    to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group.
