Nigerian Police Arrest APC Lawyers In Rivers State While Filing Processes For Tribunal

Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force allegedly acting on the orders of the Rivers State government have arrested three lawyers who are filing processes for the All Progressives Congress at the election petition tribunal in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The lawyers were said to be preparing petitions against the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission for the just concluded governorship election in Rivers State, when they were arrested.

SaharaReporters learnt that the lawyers, Jerry Aondo, Esq (Abuja), Dr. Sobere Nelson and Odum Eyiba, Esq, were picked up on Friday night at a hotel they were lodging in Port Harcourt.

The reason for their arrest is still unknown.

“They are currently at NPF Intelligence and Surveillance Unit, Ogunabali (by Market Square). They are being transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department inside the town.

“Yes, it is true. They were arrested last night. We are going to brief the press,” Nwauju stated.

Efforts to reach the spokesperson of the state Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko proved abortive as her mobile phone was not reachable as at the time of filing this report.

FAAN hands over ‘Obidient’ passenger to Police, DSS

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said it has handed over an Ibom Air passenger to the Police.

The passenger was on Friday evening dragged off an Abuja to Lagos-bound flight.

The passenger had announced that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, must not be sworn in on May 29.

In the video which went viral, the man was heard shouting as he was being carried off the aisle, “Obidients you’re here. They are doing this to me. Obidients you’re here, I am naked. Obidients you’re here, I am going naked.”

It took the efforts of about six airport officials to evacuate him after delaying the aircraft for more than an hour.
