Police Arrest Obong Ndutima For Publishing Story Against Sen. Akpabio by BrainnewsRadio(f): 4:18pm On Dec 05
The publisher of an online news portal, thefactreporters.com, Obong Ndutima has been arrested by the Nigeria Police Force, Brainnews report.

Thefactreporters.com hosts local news content and its a publishing website based in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital.

It was learnt that men of the Criminal Investigations Department, (CID) arrested him around the early hours of Monday, 3 December 2018.

The spokesperson for the Police Command in Uyo, DSP Odiko MacDon confirmed the arrest.

Odiko said, Obong Ndutim was arrested in connection with an alleged publishing of fake and damaging stories-cum-blackmailing of a distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Godswill Akpabio.

According to reports, it was gathered that the arrest followed a petition written by Senator Akpabio, alleging that Obong Ndutim’s website published an offensive and libelous story alleging that the senator was involved in money laundering with some Nigerian banks: titled ‘CBN probes Akpabio’s N865b unrecorded despite in three banks.’

The police said the senator had earlier filed a complaint against the accused at the Uyo Police Command weeks back.

“Based on the statement and published story by the accused, we have thus arrested him at his residence on Monday,” a senior police officer said.

Obong is now remanded in police custody, awaiting prosecution in court.

Good. The mumu is doing a quack hatchet job to smear the Senator's name.

Now he has the opportunity to present the facts.

Akpabio should sue him for every penny he is worth. After that the Banks will deal with him. Tomorrow he will not post rubbish again.

Thumbs up Nigeria Police. The blogger should be given opportunity to defend himself in court. Nigeria bloggers and so called journalists are copy and paste and sensational journalists.

They are part of the huge problems of Nigeria with their fake news money can buy.

This government is the worst, clamp down on anyone criticizing their mismanagement. I wonder if somebody like Lai Muhammed would be alive today to spread fake news if this is the way GEJ ran his government. To be sincere, I regret ever voted this party into power. May God have mercy on some of us pushed by our ignorance.

Na so dem arrest Deji Adeyanju for speaking out.

In fact Deji said openly that, Buhari Is behind the killings of innocent Nigerians and demoralizing the army.

Deji who in the past has mocked Kanu & IPOB said, they were quick to deploy Python dance in the East but have not done anything about Fulain Herdsmen.

Deji went further to quote Danjuma & say that Buhari is actually aiding Boko Haram & Fulani Herdsmen


See Deji condemn Buhari
