Release Journalist Tony Ezimakor

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Mr. Tony Ezimakor, Abuja Bureau Chief of the Independent Newspaper has been held by the DSS for almost a week with no idea of what charges are leveled against him. Once again, this is about using a security agency to deny a Nigerian citizen their rights of Freedom of expression without due process. It is particularly harming that journalists continue to be the target of powerful men in this country, in an age where we expect transparency and probity in all their actions. Couple this with the reported state of health of Tony Ezimakor and the reported denial of access to his medication, and we must act NOW and stop this ‘animalistic’ approach.

President Buhari, Nigeria cannot turn into a Zoo under your watch.

Please intervene to secure the release of Tony Ezimakor, while the usual course of whatever investigation of wrong doing he is accused of continues.
