Detained Activist, Chido Onumah, Released


An activist and columnist with Premium Times, Chidi Onumah, has been released by the DSS.

Onumah was picked up by  some operatives of the DSS at the airport on his return to the country on Sunday in Abuja.

He was, however, released hours later. The DSS was yet to state why the activist was arrested and detained as of the time of writing this.

Meanwhile, Onumah, who has just bagged his PhD in Spain, said he was arrested for wearing a T-shirt that bore the inscription ‘We are Biafrans’. 

Several commentators have condemned the arrest, saying the President Buhari-led administration is becoming intolerant of dissenting voices.
