Police Arrest Madu Onuorah From His Abuja Home by ijustdey: 11:08am On May 23
Madu Onuorah, veteran defence correspondent and publisher of the Globalupfront Newspaper (Online) has been abducted by the police for yet to be explained reason from his home in Abuja.

A statement by the management of the newspaper indicated that Onuorah was whisked away by 10 fully-armed policemen who stormed his residence in Lugbe, Abuja, in two Sienna buses at about 6 pm on Wednesday.

According to the statement, Onuorah was arrested in the presence of his wife and children who fruitlessly demanded from the police why they were arresting the head of the family without getting any answer.

The policemen reportedly seized Mr. Onuorah’s phones, thereby completely cutting him off from communication with people, including his family members.

“He was not even allowed to contact his lawyer or any of his relations before he was whisked away to the Lugbe police station by the stern looking operatives.

To make sure Mr. Onuorah did not get attention or bail, the policemen who arrested him, though not of the Lugbe Police Station, simply dumped him at the Station and left no traces for friends and family members to reach them,” the management of the newspaper said.

It was however gathered that the veteran journalist was taken from the Lugbe police station and was being transported to Ebonyi State as at the time of filing in this story.

Meanwhile, the Management of Globalupfront Newspapers has demanded immediate and unconditional release of Onuorah from by the police.

The newspaper management noted that Mr. Onuorah is an experienced journalist, former Abuja Bureau Chief of The Guardian Newspaper, former Managing-Director of The AUTHORITY Newspaper, who operates within the ambit of the law and that anybody who has any issue against him should approach the law court and not turn the Nigerian Police into a Gestapo outfit that bullies a man in the presence of his wife and children.

“That any second Mr. Onuorah spends in police custody constitutes a serious infringement against his fundamental rights and a continuation of the assault on freedom of expression that has become frequent occurrence in Nigeria recently,” the Management of Globalupfront Newspapers demanded.

Police abduct veteran veteran defence correspondent and publisher of the Globalupfront Newspaper (Online) Madu Onuorah for yet- to- be explained reason from his home in Abuja.

The war is not against Bonafide journalists but against pseudo journalists with no credential nor integrity, but rather using their online access to spread rumors, lies and innuendos to blackmail people.

Even so, is that the proper manner to fight pseudo journalists?

LoL
Who counted

I like to hear from two sides before talking.

By the way a man under arrest os asked to remain silent as anything said would be used against him, he will be allowed a phone call at the station not at his house.
The police do not owehis wife and children an explanation actually.
They have no business with the wife.

Since they are aware that he is being taken to Ebonyi state it means the police revealed that to them. Which is the best they can do.
Its a standard police procedure if you ask me.
Saying he was arrested in front of his wife and children, should they have called him to the backyard and whisper into his ear that he under arrest?

If you dont want shit like this to happen to you stay away frok bullshit that can result to this.


If the warrant for his arrest comes from Ebonyi state then he will be taken to Ebonyi state, so making it sound like they should have taken him to Lugbe is funny.

This is a one sided news.
The news agency ranting without knowing the crimes he has commited better calm down.

For police to come all the way from Ebonyi come carry am for Abuja, the guy don commit
