The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested Tony Ezimakor, INDEPENDENT Newspapers’ Abuja Bureau Chief.

Ezimakor had walked into DSS headquarters in Abuja about 10.30a.m on Wednesday to honour an invitation from the security agency, but since then nothing had been heard from him.

All the management of INDEPENDENT newspapers could confirm was that as at 10p.m on Wednesday, Ezimakor had not been questioned about anything at all.

He was shunted from one office to the other, and was asked to wait for a particular officer who had been away from his office.

Unfortunately, Douglas Ekhator, Independent Newspapers’ lawyer, sent to assist Ezimakor was not allowed to see him even as late as 10p.m.

That the lawyer took food and water to him could not make the DSS to grant him access to the detainee.

To make matters worse, Ezimakor, who has been taking drugs to control his high blood pressure, did not have access to his prescribed medication.

His wife said her husband left his medication at home and did not eat any food before leaving home Wednesday morning.

She lamented that her husband’s health had been put in grave danger.

INDEPENDENT, therefore, is asking for its Abuja Bureau Chief’s unconditional release, otherwise his life is in serious danger.

Meanwhile, the DSS has not explained the reason for his detention.
