Published

on

The Department of State Service  ( DSS ) has released the Bureau Chief of Daily Independent newspaper, Tony Ezimakor after 7 days in their custody.

Civil rights groups, human rights activists and different organisations had asked the secret police to release the journalist unconditionally but the agency had insisted that Ezimakor would remain in its custody until he disclosed the source of a story he wrote.

His release is coming a few hours after an activist group #OurMumuDonDo threatened to storm the headquarters of the DSS to protest the unlawful detention of Mr. Eziakor.

However, around 10:30pm on Tuesday, the DSS allowed Ezimakor to leave in the company of Douglas Ekhator, his lawyer.

More to come…..
