CrossRiverWatch Editor-in-Chief and rights activists, Citizen Agba Jalingo who was detained in the early hours of Friday over a fake petition that he is an arms dealer has been released.

A group, The Concerned Cross Riverians an unregistered organization whose address and contact details were not stated, wrote the petition saying he was an arms dealer.

The purported President, John Ndok and Secretary, Joy Amah did not sign and did not include their contact details in the petition.

He was released after citizens and activists mounted pressure on the Police querying why he was been detained.

And, the Police Commissioner, Sikiru Akande is said to have ordered his release having reviewed the case file and said the petition was frivolous.

He was invited by the commissioner over the planned #June12 protest and later referred alongside CrossRiverWatch News Editor, Jonathan Ugbal to the State Investigation Bureau where they were profiled and their biometrics captured.

An unnamed official then approached the duo, inviting them to the State Criminal Investigation Department where he was confronted with the petition.

His lawyer, James Ibor Esq. who secured his release described the situation as “unfortunate” and a clear attempt to “shrink the civic space.”

We can't definitely call this 'chasing clouds.
He needs to be placed on intensive watch for a very looong time.

They wanted to pin one on him, but his God strong pass them

Keep shut if you don't understand a simple one paragraph thread and let intelligent people comment or better still give your phone to a 5 year old girl to explain to you.

Wailing and hatred for your country have run you and your ilks to something else.
Supporters of crimes, deaths, blood and criminal politicians everywhere.
Spits

thebosstrevor1:
I said it.

All your various sponsors and opportunist activists are going to be arrested.

They are SABOTEURs

Kudos to the cross river state government for acting on the intelligence report.

NO PROTEST TOMORROW.
NOBODY IS GOING TO DIE TOMORROW
NO MOTHER IS GOING TO CRY TOMORROW
AND NO FAMILY WILL BE IN SORROW

WE WANT A PEACEFUL NIGERIA

SweetBuns:
Activism is not a vehicle that can be used to ferry your selfish intentions

I hope he gets what’s coming to him
End of story!
It is always good to know we still have reasonable and sensible members like you on this forum.
With youths like you, the future of our darling nation is bright.
God bless your parents for giving us a King and Queen like you guys.
