Management of EyewitnessMedia on Sunday has condemned in strong terms, the arrest of a journalist working with The Punch Newspapers, Solomon Odeniyi, at Dunamis Church to cover an event.
Reacting, the Editor, Adetoyese who described Solomon as a close friend described the development as the sad reality obtainable in Nigeria today, lamenting that such satanic act must be discarded for the development of Nigeria.
“The security men should as a matter of urgency release him unconditionally and apologize to him because his rights have been violated. It is laughable that the same security operatives who could not tackle the rising insecurity in the country are being used by some elements to harass law-abiding Nigerians.” He said.
Solomon works with the Abuja Bureau of the newspaper and was covering a live event when he was whisked away.
“We are all concerned for his safety as he had not been allowed to either pick his calls or contact anyone.” The Editor stressed.
