Some bloggers and activists have been tweeting about the arrest of social a media commentator named Ojo Emmanuel on Saturday evening by men of the Nigeria Police force allegedly on the order of the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun. The alleged crime against him was that he made a Facebook post against the governor’s wife. Below is what his friend sent in to LIB
He was arrested at Ibara in Abeokuta and taken to the Ibara Police station. While there he was forced to write a statement and when he remained adamant to do that he was beaten blue, black and the content of the statement they desire dictated to him. All attempts to get his pregnant wife have access to him proved abortive and as at 9:40pm on Sunday he was transferred to the Eleweran prison. No one has been granted access to him till now. Not even his lawyer.
All these people thinking it’s okay to arrest and brutalize people because of their opinion. OK!
