CHIDO ONUMAH

He is the Coordinator of African Centre for Media & Information Literacy.

Mart Obono, a lawyer, told TheCable that Onumah was picked up at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Sunday.

He said the journalist was returning from a trip to Spain when he was arrested.

“We traveled together for a conference in UK. But we didn’t come back together because he went to Spain to finalize his PhD thesis and I went to London but got back last week Sunday,” he said.

“He was just returning from the trip today when he was picked at the airport.”

Peter Afunanya, DSS spokesman, did not immediately respond to enquiries on the development.
