Seven men in two Hilux Jeeps early this morning at about 6.00am stormed
the Uyo residence of the blogger and whisked him away in the presence
of his wife and little daughter without disclosing the reason for his
arrest and their destination.
The men took away his Laptops, his
phones, his wife’s phones and every digital device in sight after
ransacking their apartment.
Though the DSS has not confirmed his
arrest, a source in DSS office Uyo said that the Presidency is not happy
with Anyalekwa over IGBERE TV’s persistent pro Biafra publications. He
was also wanted for questioning over what he called “some sensitive anti
Buhari publications” recently.
The source also revealed that
Anyalekwa was first taken to an unknown location in Uyo before
immediately being transferred to Abuja.
Anyalekwa’s fast rising blog, (IGBERETVNEWS.COM),
launched about a year ago has been attacked and shutdown severally by
people suspected to be agents of the federal government over his
persistent pro Biafra reports.
Just last Friday, The blog was
shutdown by his host without any reason. On Tuesday 11th October, the
site was restored after he changed his host, but surprisingly, it was
shutdown again by the new host the following day (less than 48 hours
later) without any concrete reason. The site is still down as at the
time of this report as his engineers are reportedly battling round the
clock to restore the site back online.
We are hereby call on Buhari
and his DSS people to immediately release Anyalekwa. The last time we
checked, we‘re still in a democracy. If they have anything against the
Blogger, the right thing to do is to charge him to court. Buhari should
stop all these human rights violations before it’s too late.
