DSS frees Abuja journalist, Tony Ezimakor

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

Ezimakor was released to his lawyer, Barr.Douglas Ekhator at about 10:30pm Tuesday night.

The service had Wednesday last week invited the journalist, an invitation he voluntarily honoured. Accompanied by photojournalist, Jide Oyekunle, the two journalists were held up till 3: 00pm when Oyekunle was allowed to go. And so began Ezimakor’s ordeal.

He was left incommunicado 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.

The service is miffed at the story and wondered how the journalist had access to such classified information which they claimed that it embarrassed the Swiss Government.

Public outrage have trailed 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 released unconditionally.
