The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested a journalist-activist, Mr Chido Onumah, who is a Columnist with an Online News medium.
Mr Onumah, a journalist and author, is said to have been arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International, Abuja on Sunday evening.
It is reported that Mr Onumah had just returned to Nigeria from Spain, where he had obtained a PhD in communication studies.
The Columnist is the author of a book titled, ‘We Are All Biafrans.’
In a telephone conversation, the Public Relations Officer of the Service, Doctor Peter Afunanya, said he was not in the office as at the time of filing this report so he could neither confirm nor deny the arrest of Mr Onumah.
Reports later last night however suggested that Onumah was released and allowed to go home after questioning by DSS.
