ABUJA-BASED ONLINE PUBLISHER ARRESTED OVER ALLEGATION OF DEFAMATORY PUBLICATION AND NOT ABDUCTED AS ALLEGED

...Enugu CP orders a professional investigation of the case and solicits patience from NUJ and others

The Enugu State Police Command is in receipt of several publications alleging the abduction of an Abuja-based online news publisher, one Madu Onuorah โ€œmโ€. The Command wishes to state that contrary to the allegations, he was duly arrested in Abuja with the assistance of police operatives from Ebonyi State Command and the aid of intelligence, after efforts made to formally invite him failed.

Furthermore, his arrest was following the receipt of a written petition to the Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, against him over an alleged defamatory publication he made against a US-based Reverend Sister.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu, psc (+), has ordered the office handling the case to professionally investigate and ensure that justice prevails. He calls on the press family, particularly the leadership and members of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), and associates of the suspect, to exercise patience, assuring that the needful will be done in the case.

It amazes me how Nigeruan police are so swift to make arrest in civil matters such as this. But are never no where to be found when actual crime that needs investigation is committed.

Same applies to the military guys who akwaysvfisolay might when it comes to civilians.

Defamation is something the courts settle, and not something ten policemen in 2 Hilux vehicles kidnap people for.

That reverend sister, if it was an American journalist that "defamed" her in the US? Is the police there going to kidnap the journalist with ten men and 2 Hilux vans, or is she not going to press charges?

Let's be careful of what we support because this thing defamation can be open to interpretation. Tomorrow you can just say what someone doesn't like and you'll get kidnapped for defamation by the police.

This is how societies crumble. And tyranny instituted. Chunk by chunk, one rot after the other. One impunity after the other.

Re: Madu Onuorah Arrested Over Defamatory Publication Against Nun - Police by Smartcitizen: 10:00pm On May 23
Hmmm!

And you came to arrest him with about 15 police officers?

Nigerian police officers are sincerely stupid.


I remember when a family was about to be kidnapped in Abuja, the police officers that came were overpowered.


What a useless country called Nigeria

Good move.

The era of impunity and loose talk need to end. You can't just bring the name and works of people to disrepute because you just don't like them or their ways.

Rwanda war between Tutsis and Hutus is a classic example people must be severely punished for deliberate lies and false allegations.

Some journalists collect money to write defamatory stories against people.

If such journalists are caught, they must be prosecuted.
