Really glad to see that @SamuelOgundipe is free from detention - although the spurious charges are still not withdrawn.

One day sooner or later, the Buhari/Osinbajo will answer for its atrocities and assault on Democracy.

The implications of the arrest are with us though:
As seen in the #JonesAbiri case, journalists who are unknown to many of us and who don’t work with internationally reputable media such as PremiumTimes can lose two or more years of their lives under this tyrannical Govt.

How many more are being detained under Buhari/Osinbajo?
The remote implication of these arrests is that Media Organisations will now engage in in-house censorship while journalists will deepen their own self-censorship rather than push the boundaries of free speech and ethical journalism to enhance and deepen democracy.

Will the Nigerian government do the right thing to either release #JonesAbiri unconditionally or charge him to court TODAY? Two years in detention without trial is a travesty of democracy, that's if #Nigeria is still a democracy?
Our silence is the ONLY reason why Nigerian leaders feel they can do whatever they want, even if it is against the law. Today, it is #JonesAbiri, tomorrow it can be you, or me again? The #Nigerianmedia must come out of its shell and speak against this abuse of power.
#JonesAbiri is detained for II yrs without trial, yet the @NGRPresident & his lieutenants had the audacity to attend #IPIWoCo ceremony, claiming they encouraged liberal media? There is no crime that warrants a person to be confined for II yrs without trial. #FreeJonesAbiri now.
