DSS finally allows Journalist to go after torture and freedom deprivation

The Department of State Service (DSS) has finally set free the Bureau Chief of Daily Independent, Tony Ezimakor after depriving him freedom for seven days.

The Journalist was set free to his lawyer, Barr. Douglas Ekhator at about 10:30pm on Tuesday night.

DSS had on Wednesday last week invited the journalist and he showed up. Followed by photojournalist, Jide Oyekunle, the two journalists were held up till 3: 00pm when Oyekunle was allowed to go but  Ezimakor was kept in custody.

He was left "off the grid" as he was denied access to food, his wife and lawyer till 10 :00pm Wednesday night.

Ezimakor had written a story on February 22nd 2018 on the release of the abducted chibok girls and the roles played by the Swiss negotiator as well as the Nigeria collaborator.

DSS got irritated at the story and was curious on how the journalist had access to such classified information which they claimed that it embarrassed the Swiss Government.

Public unsettle have followed his arrest and detention with many human rights organisations, the Nigerian Union of Journalists and individuals coming out to condemn the action, saying it is an affront on press freedom.

Ezimakor was set free with any condition attached.
